Ive been wasting some time on google earth looking for lakes, and i was wondering if anyone has found radar?

YEAH! Thats wierd because I was doing the same thing a few weeks ago while i was watching Welcome with my roommates.

If you type in Duvall, WA then zoom in a few clicks it should be just southwest of the green little pin pointing to the middle of the town. I am not sure if its THEE Radar Lake but its definetly a ski lake with the turn-around islands at each end, so I would figure that it most likely is.

If youre bored still try typing in Clear Lake Orlando, FL and you can see all the cool canals that run down the back yards of Shane and Ruck's backyard in the neighborhood they live in on the south end of the lake. I got the idea when i was watching the Orlando Meet section during an episode of Pull. There are like 8 canals, Im not sure which canal they live on but how sweet would it be to have a house off the lake and still have lake access and have your X-Star in the backyard!!

the location of radar lake is between woodinville and redmond about 15 miles east. If you post a link then I could tell you if it's the same lake or not.

Use - it's a much higher resolution and has better closeup features.

What's the story with Radar lake? I assume it's private. I live about 15 mins from there and I've never heard of it. I also saw Cottage Lake up towards Woodinville. Are boats allowed on there?

AWWWW man! Have you ever seen counterfiet this? It is mostly filmed on Radar, I belive it is owned by the obriens, and so the hyperlite team did a lot on it, but now the obriens are into Ronix, so they'll be using it for Ronix. The lake is home to a lot of kick ass rails, like the big wall ride, and others on that lake in counterfeit this.

Herb built Radar back in the late 60's, bill gates offered to buy it and herb turned him down, so thats an idea of the value. As for cottage lake WA, no boats with gas engines are allowed on it, Sammamish is the closest lake to ride on. (for those who know the area, take old woodinvile duvall road, and take a right where the old dump used to be and you'll drive by it. Its next to a newer neihborhood)

Yeah, has way better images. They have arial 2D and a 3D view at multiple resolutions. In the 2D birdseye view you can actually see the rails, docks, etc.

Some close friends of ours are good friends with the o'briens and last summer were lucky enough to ride there and at their other lake. believe everything you've heard about this lake.

I have been up there a few times. murrays back yard tour used to stop there and you could ride and demo gear. It is a sweet setup that can't be seen from the road and is gated and fenced.

I have recently seen pics of early March snow on Radar Lake and people wakeboarding through the snow during their runs.

Radar is cool, but not just because of the lake, but because of the people hanging around there are very funny and relaxed.

Isaac-The area that Mike circled is about 100 acres. I do not know the property boundaries the lake is on. The actual lake itself is about 300 feet wide and 2000 ft long. That is 600,000 square feet or about 14 acres just for the lake itself.

Correct, mostly invite only. Besides, it's all gated anyway. Radar rocks! I was fortunate to ride there last July. Thanks Grant, Paul and Herb!! I'll have to post my pics.

I too was fortunate enough to ride at Radar. About 2 years ago the company my friends dad works for did some work for Mr. Obrien on site, and well long story short invited his whole company and there families to the lake. It just so happened that I spent that week with my friend.

All and all it was a blast. I just wished that my skill level would have been higher when I went, but either way I got an experience of a lifetime.

If I can find some pics I'll post them.

Nice video III. That looks like so much fun. I thought I heard something about a new shop opening, do you have any details for us on the eastside?
