Crappy, weather is gonna suck. Windy out of the north at 10-20 :-( I am still planning of going and at the least to surf.
Old    Eder Garavito Garavito (spicychalupa69)      Join Date: May 2005       05-06-2008, 9:56 PM Reply

The wind shouldn't be too bad on Owasso, since it's coming from the North/Northwest. There's a good amount of shelter on that side, along with deeper water.

See you guys tonight!

I have seen boats bottom out on the north side, therfore I done go within 200 yards of shore. It scares me. I have seen a ski boat destroy tis glass and where the prop shaft soes through. 5 figures later, it was ready for the water again :-( Luckily it wasnt mine.

Looks like I now have plenty of room. Mike is coming but he cat ride due to injury, my wife cant come now so i guess I am the only one of my crew that can ride. How many total does that give us that are riding now?

Don, Me, Chad, Mike, John T, and Erik if he is gonna ride. Then you riding. if worst comes to worst you can always dock your boat at your buddies house and jump for a set in mine. See you out there!

You bet we're still going. A little wind never hurt anyone. The wind will be at 14mph by 4 o'clock and will drop down to 10mph or less as the evening goes on. That won't be too bad.

It's been a cold spring in Minnesota.

north side of the lake
Old    Tuneman (tuneman)      Join Date: Mar 2002       05-08-2008, 8:38 AM Reply   
Moxilla, take 694 to Rice Street. Go south to the first lights(North Owasso Drive). Turn right and go about 100 yards to the launch on the left.

Look at a map on the MN DNR website first, because there are shallow spots and rocks you may hit if not aware of them.

Erik, got pics?

Major kudos to Eder and Don for bringing out their boats last night. It was a bit windy early on, but we found good water. After 7 o'clock, the lake was super calm. Good times.

Don, don't forget to tell her about the sunpad. There's a SANTE in your future:-D

indeed. I told her about going to test it out but she wants it to be nicer befroe that so she can ride it too. It is a step in the right direction though :-)

I'm so jealous. I made it out to Owasso 20 or so times last year and the other 20 were on Bald Eagle. I love Owasso pretty clean and quiet most days during the week. I hope to get to meet some of you guys this summer but not sure when I'll be around and have some free time.

Sweet pics Erik!
Don- that is a kickass picture i took ha! the ONLY one i was able to take without shaking cuz i was so cold and the only good one that came out before Erik's camera literally died on me and shut off! Profile material brother!!

Next time, i PROMISE my boat will have a full tank of gas, haha, it happens to the best of us gentlemen, my apologies, at least Don was there to steal the show with his ride!!Don, pull the trigger on the SANTE my man, you wont regret it and we ALL know it, besides, who knows if we will still talk to you if you keep the '93 , tell that to your future wife! ha!

This weekend looks to be crappy anyhow, but im lookin to get out next week again WITH GAS, so lets find a nice day again, get organized and do it all over again...im officialy addicted to surfing now so i have to give that a shot again, thanks for teaching me how guys, later!

I have to get into this weekly setup! Damn! THis makes me soo envious. Also, if you are into surfing you gotta try the LF Custom that I just picked up. I bet you would love that thing Eder.
Let me know what day next week!
Old    TRDon (trdon)      Join Date: Sep 2007       05-09-2008, 7:12 AM Reply   
We need to get a bunch more out there. :-) It was a great time and that is an awesome angled pick of me, thanks for that Eder :-) I always love the chase boat photos, they turn out so cool. We have willing boat drivers so the option is there for anyone wanting to come out. If we need more than 1 boat, we can accomodate it :-)

It seems that the test drive has been put on hold for the SANTE. The wife insists she gets to ride it too and surf it so it has to be a bit warmer than it is now. I am not happy with it but it is a step in the right direction for us I think, just pushes it back that's all. As far as not talking to me if I keep this boat, I think the wife may think it is our best intrest for that to happen. You guys are a bad influence on me lol
Old    Tuneman (tuneman)      Join Date: Mar 2002       05-09-2008, 8:17 AM Reply   
Don, we're the good influence, not the bad.

The difference in wake size and overall comfort, between your current boat and the SANTE, will be like night and day. Just have your wife sit in it on the trailer, show her the sunpad, tell her that there will be no ballast bags in the way and she'll be convinced. First hand experience talking here.

Great pics, Erik.

Just take her out tomorrow and have her fill and empty all the sacs in the boat, then take her into the SAN and tell her to do the same thing by flipping a switch. Paying extra for convenience is totally worth it IMO

Ethan you're in walker..ish right? I do get up to northern lakes but not too much. One of my friends has a small cabin about 30 mins north of walker, i forget the lake name exactly, but we dont do a lot of boarding there, its about 30 mins north of "Reeds". If i go boarding north of the metro area i'll be in Cross Lake, my friend has a cabin there, and he has an 06 Xstar so we do a lot of boardin on the white-fish chain of lakes, about 25 mins NE of Brainerd, that's as far north as i have made it brother.

Everyone -- Lets get one or two days this next week to go out!

Let me know, we can take out my boat, yours, or both again! This time, i WILL have gas! Tomorrow does look promising and itwould be a great day start the week off later

I dont think I can make tomorrow happen, tuesday looks like rain, and wed looks like it might work out. Not a 70 in sight :-( I will see what happens closer to that time. I have Mikes boat at my house and I have some work to do on that one but it might come out for a run, not that anyone wants a hit behind that one though lol Anyone ridden a 78 ski tique before? I might go for one side sac in it but that is about its limit

I would like to know how many people are going to make it out to see if i should bring out my boat too, and i sure Erik would most definitely want to know since i think, he is bringing out his rig. Last week we had a pretty good count! 66 and mostly sunny tomorrow! AAAAH! cant wait! See you all there!!

_JB, i will give you a call tomorrow at midwest, assuming you are working, if not, give me a ring or leave me your cellphone number man, my number is posted above, you can email me as well.

Erik, i know you are counting one me to go out on your boat (at least i hope so ) and as of right now, im going out. I might have a few (3 or 4) of my friends interested in coming out with me tomorrow, so if that is the case, ill bring out my boat as well, and meet you out there, is that cool (i dont want a bunch of my friends jumpin in on your boat, besides, it will be more cramped anyhow)! Then we can get some chase boat pictures and such as well man.

So, with that said, _JB, i MIGHT be going out earlier than 5:15, pending on my friends, so you are more than welcome to hop in on my boat if that is the case (bring your surf board )

As of right now, (i will post tomorrow at about noon) I am counting on hopping in your boat if that is still alright Erik, one way or another...see you guys out there!

Chad, sent you an email!

I will be out with Mike again. We got his boat and that is coming with me tomorrow. We got some work to do on it and I have to make sure all the pieces are there before we tow it back the 225 miles north and drop it in his lake again. We will be doing some on again off again troubleshooting so we will be out there and social but probably not riding hardcore for the majority of the time. I will be out there probably around 5 or so.

I know you guys are heading out tonight, but would there be any interest in Friday afternoon as well? Bryan Madson and I are going to try to get out on Medicine with his VLX sometime after 3. We never seem to do that wake justice, so if anyone wants to come and show us what do to with it, you're more than welcome.

Erik, out of curiosity, what firm are you with?

I figured out it was the return hose from the heater that had come loose as a result of my shower install. We bilged it, temporarily patched it up,and everything was back to normal, so we did our surfing and I pulled away from the launch just after 9.

Sorry I didn't call you back Eder, busy day. But I'm out tomorrow, going up norte. I've got a buddy that wanted to ride with us last time, I'll introduce you guys sometime - he's usually always down to ride and is local.

Medicine lake was butter last night! Was fine with just a heater shirt and trunks on.

Eder, we are going to be meeting out at medicine right around 3 or 330, my cell is 218.371.1563. Anyone else is more than welcome, I think we have four of us so far, and I know the Bu can fit more than that.
