Hey Everyone!

I have been wakeboarding about a year, and am always going with a guys who are way better then me, and would love to find some girls to ride with! Are any of you in the Orlando area still riding through the winter?
Old    Kat Laird (wakekat15)      Join Date: Jul 2005       01-25-2009, 11:59 AM Reply   
Hey Amanda,

Riding with guys way better than you is a great way to improve your riding in a hurry! However, if you'd like to join a less intimidating crew occasionally, we ride most weekends. We are planning an outing next weekend on the St. John's if you'd like to meet up with us.

I believe that Scott & Irene will join us, who live in Orlando and have a great riding crew as well.

Let me know if you are interested & I'll email you directions/details.

I would love to come! I just got off the lake and the air temp was great but the water was freezing. It was the first time I have ridden since November, so I am a little rusty. The guy who I ride with most is my husband, and he is a very good at teaching others, just not the most patient with me :-). I used to ride a lot on the St. Johns but we moved onto Prairie Lake in Altamonte, so I mostly just stay here. I am very excited to ride with other women (and hopefully get some pointers), so let me know where and when!!

Thanks,

Amanda

Just saw the high for Saturday is forecast to be 62. Sunday looks to be a little warmer than that. I will get back to you with a plan later in the week. We look forward to meeting you!

Amanda, Irene would love to have you out anytime. Also there is a guy Theo on your new lake that is a really good coach and all around nice guy that I ride with once in a while. Kat I will be with you for sure let me know the details I think Irene will.

Hey Scott,

Theo is my husband :-).

LOL... I know. He is very patient and a very good teacher to everybody else.... not so much with me. LOL. I think that is why I need some women to ride with!

I got that on my own sorry! Irene said the same thing to me too. Work in progress for everyone I guess!

Confusious say: Guy who gives no advice on wakeworld, gathers no foot in mouth!
I actually get to take credit for figuring out that Theo might be your husband--but didn't mention it to scottie before he wrote on WW.
Amanda--hope you come out this weekend
Kat--I'm still in if you still want me
Old    Kat Laird (wakekat15)      Join Date: Jul 2005       01-27-2009, 5:23 AM Reply   
Absolutely, Irene! It's supposed to be warmer on Sunday (69) vs Saturday (61). However, I realize this is Super Bowl Sunday. Does Sunday work if we start at 11a and finish by 4pm? If not, we will do Saturday at Noon.

We will meet at Ed Stone Park West of Deland.

Let me know!

Hey Amanda, I ride with Friarman over there on Prairie and I met Theo through him, he has been helping me when he has time. I am as well kinda just beginning and don't care who I ride with just as long as they like to have fun, you are probably way better than me anyways! Ha. But hopefully I will be living on Prairie soon a couple of houses down from Jon. I would be more than happy to go riding with you, and if you want to ride only with some girls, that is totally cool too thought I would throw out the offer. Have a good one and tell Theo I said hey for me.

OMG!!!!!!This is hilarious!!! Good thing you said nice things, Scott....

Why don't you guys all plan on coming here next year.....temp this week is 70-80
Old    Irene Gaz (clearlakeirene)      Join Date: Jun 2007       01-29-2009, 2:49 PM Reply   
Hi Kat--I think I am goin to bail-out on riding this weekend. It is only supposed to be low-mid 60's, and I am sure the water is freezing with all the cold weather. I usually only go if the air temp is at least in the 70's. Call me a wimp!
Thanks for the invite though, let me know when you go out again, I would love to go! Stay warm!!!

Geri if you weren't one of the nicest people I have ever met I would be mad at you for rubbing it in. It also helps that I know your offer is real.
Old    Kat Laird (wakekat15)      Join Date: Jul 2005       01-31-2009, 6:17 AM Reply   
Amanda/Scott,

Forecast still shows sunny, but chilly. Up for riding tomorrow (Sunday)? If not, there's always next weekend!

Geri...stop it! lol

Kat, i am up for next weekend if you go out and it is a bit warmer. Haven't ridden in weeks, I'm getting the itch. I imagine Scottie would be in too. Stay warm tomorrow!

Geri--you might be stuck with scottie and I for a week next winter if you keep gloating

Sorry to hear you hurt you back, hope it gets better quick and you get back to rippin' it soon.

Great--anytime.

No...I didn't hurt my back. I had back surgery in 1997 and get routine injections every 3-4 months. That's why I have a hard time grabbing indy. I tell the doc just to keep me on the water!

Enjoy your snowboarding, so cool you have the choice of water or snow right now. I will be skiing in 2 weeks in CO. That is if I don't get frostbite from the COLD water this weekend

Here is the video I took of you riding. (Sorry for the background noise...I THOUGHT I erased all the sound from the video). You are so close on that HS 180!

Kat, you might quite possibly be the nicest person in the world.
So glad you and Kim came out last weekend, and thank you so much for the handle. We didn't get to try it Sunday because everyone baled on us. But def this weekend. Scott says he loves the feel of it.
Let us know if you want to ride. Not sure what the plans are yet.

Renie,

We don't have a plan for Saturday yet. We could come there, meet you on St. John's or have you come up here and ride Lake Weir.

Let's touch base on Friday & see what's up!

lol...not known for being Nice!! I sure hope the handle is Scotty proof though!!!

Hi Julia!

Welcome to Florida! I will be spending a lot of time out of state the next few months, but will let you know when we are going out. It can only be on a Sat/Sun though. Lake Conway is nice....do you have a boat there? Maybe we can ride with you around the Wake Games event! If you don't have a boat, I could bring mine & launch there. Let's make a plan!

Kat, I'm so sad you're leaving!! I hope you find some great people to ride with. I'd love to get together and ride if you have time when you are back. I WILL have the tantrum by then, and maybe start working on another invert. Next year I really want to try riding Wakegames with the lady 'Masters'!!

tish tish Irene!!! Talking smack is only reserved for those who have already presented in the division!! Besides, I will probably never have an invert and I ride in it....but I guess when you are as old as Methuselah you are excused

WooHoo, did I ruffle some feathers ladies? You know I think you're awesome. I'm not even consistent on my W2W and technique yet. I go out and hit them all one day, then I go out the next week and can't even land on my feet. But I've been watching some videos and have some techniques I want to try.
Kat--I'm shakin' in my bindings! Can't wait to see you shred the TS inverts!
Geri--How old is Methuselah? Like 35? You are way too young to be excused, and I am sure you could easily learn an invert! Besides, I only want to do them because I am scared of 180's and spins, so you have those covered!

I am boatless right now Ladies, but...once the new one arrives, you are welcome to ride with us! However, we live 45 minutes North of Orlando so it isn't necessarily convenient! We could meet in town every now and then, though!

Thanks Scott, sounds like fun. I just had my first wakeboard experience yesterday... and loved it so I'll probably be mixing it up between that and the skate now... would be great to come out and ride with you guys.

Yea Cat, come on out (same boat as Scott). Have your boyfriend bring some friends so we can get some more dudes on board! The poor boys are being shown up by us girls, and I'm starting to feel bad for them b/c they have to listen to all the girlie conversations.
