anyone know if there's anyone to hook up with for a few pulls? or if there's a place to rent a boat or time behind a boat?

We went there for our honeymoon and found a guy to pull me. He was used to pulling tubers. He started out driving straight then when he turned around I hit the double up and threw a tantrum which I don't think he had ever seen anyone do. From then on he just drove in circles and varied the speed from 15-30 mph. My wife kept telling him to go straight and hold the speed constant, but he would tell her that I liked it.

That was 7 years ago. I would think things have gotten better. I did bring my own board, I would bring a rope too. As I remember the one he had was pretty getto.

Skiing made me board,

thanks for the response lyle, but, i don't think i will bring my board, vest, and rope unless i know for sure that i can get a pull. then again there's murphy's law that says i'll get down there and meet someone with a boat full of hot chicks who offers to give me a pull for free, and i won't have my gear, and i'll be PISSED!
