finally got to hit up the lake this past spring break..i've been so tied up with school and work i havent had time. there were only two wakeboard boats on the lake and both of us were riding, besides someone on a slalom. water wasnt too bad so i trunked it. just wondering who all out there's from texas. me and my buddies plan on taking a few road trips this summer so it'd be nice to maybe hook up with some people...

I'm from the Fort Worth area, but I currently live in San Diego. You ought to check out the riding at the Brazos River, off Tin Top Rd, west of Fort Worth. There's some really good riders out there, and nice water too.

Taylor, nice quote. Go to "find a third/be a third" and post the dates you'll be in here and specifically where you'll be. if its one weekend or three months.
Lance, I live in Tyler, 2 hrs. east of Dallas. Definitely planning a few road trips this summer, so we'll have to stay in touch.

hey lance! im from cedar park but im in belton a lot b/c i have a really good friend who lives there. i love wakeboarding and me and my friends usually ride lakes austin and travis, but when im in belton on belton lake, it is usually in my friends pontoon boat, so it would be pretty awesome if we could meet up at belton lake sometime this summer or weekend soon or whenever.
Taylor- my grandparents live in conroe and we go to that lake all the time also! we have never brought a wakeboard boat there but if u wanted to meet up sometime and find a ride that would be awesome. im not really around conroe during the summer much but thanksgiving im up there lol.

I'm from Dallas as well. If you are ever in the area its pretty easy to find a ride. Just go to there is a section dedicated to finding pulls.

I grew up skiing on Belton. Anyway, I just moved back to the area, so if you want to hook up and ride just holler.

Wow, there is a lot more riders in this general area than I thought there was. When I rode last summer we were the only boat on the lake during the week. On the weekend the place was crowded and never saw a boat with a tower. Maybe it will not be all that hard to find a third during the week after all.

hey nick if you're ever in belton then email me or hit me up on here and we could give you a pull. then maybe you'd do the same for me and my friends if we come down to austin...

If anyone is up on lake texoma email me to ride.

Brandon, I seriously doubt that the Slalom Shop fixes bindings. They might be able to send them off to the manufacturer, but they spend most of their time dealing with their large boat customers, not on proshop items.

Just went to slalom shop last week. Part of my overlay was ripped and the guy just gave me the piece no charge. he said they would fix it for me if i wanted, but i just ended up doing it myself.

Not necessarily true, they have fixed numerous items for me. I once dinged my board which I did not buy from them and they fixed it there for free on the spot. They also replaced my Vapor vest for free because the padding moved around.

The guys that work their are riders too so they know that their clientele are riders not yacht owners.

How is the leg Scott?

Tino ~ whats up man? you ridin caddo this summer?

Pierce, the leg is coming along. I'm still on crutches till the 25th. However, my jones for the water has gotten the better of me. I'm planning on going out on my boat this Saturday. At least I can enjoy the sun, friends and beer.

I'm glad to hear that the Slalom Shop is going out of their way to help out their customers. It sounds like they may be trying to better their service.
