Holy Cow look how big Ms. Abby is!!! How about we get together some time so your little one can show my daughter that the water is not bad and swimming is good. Mom has taught her about the fish and how they can bite !

Well I just got back from a trip of Rain, Mud & 4 Wheelers. I got to say the wheelers are fun but how they can turn real bad with the wrong rider. I was always the last one up and down the trail due to the first time ever being on a wheeler but I came home with nothing broken. Those damn things can go almost anywhere, the people in front of me go up a steep grade trail and I'm thinking to myself there is no way anybody is getting up that. Well after watching everybody and picking my line I gave it a go. Holy S what a rush!

Time to ride again!

Holy cow Shima lost some weight in that last pic!

Matt ~~ Looks like you guys got some great water, now how about the truth and tell about the bugs. Great pics by the way.

Josh, Shima is getting some fabulous results on that jenny crank diet I tell what! Im next to try it

As for the bugs,,Ya they came out later on the evening. Poor Faith and Mr "T" were eating em on their last sets. Great kids them 2 are, know how to ride and have fun attitudes. (credit to Dad on that)

Thanks for the pics Matt, had a blast and we'll definitely have to do it again when you get back next month. You were shredding the gnar!

Josh, bugs only came out towards the end of the night (last half hour). Until then, I was pleasantly surprised.

8 days left in Utah. Sorry I couldn't meet up with you all before taking off, but between some nasty family stuff and trying to move, time has run short.

It's been a fun ride over the last 11 years living in Utah. Learned a lot and met some great people. I'm going to stay in the Utah Guard for a little while longer until I figure out what to do with the rest of my military career so I'll be heading down for at least one weekend a month from here on out.

I hope to run in to you all again and I look forward to the skating season update emails from Ryan.

Now if I could just find a stupid freaking house in Idaho Falls. I can't believe the pickings are so slim on decent property up there.

Anthony ~~ It was great to meet you up at Jason's grass party and then get a session behind your boat. You know your always allowed on the Northern thread but you have to share pics and stories about living up North, keep the snow stories to yourself.

Mike ~~ How is the ankle holding up now a days? Good to see people get new gear and really like it. Shima tried to suck me in the Obrien family but I ended up really liking the C-Dub Ab for my riding. Are you riding UT at all, if you need a fourth or fifth some time let me know. I would say you might be the only one on this thread I haven't rode with, ok Jason to.

No worries Mike, that's my "job" for Obrien and welcome to the family. Thanks for the pulls yesterday, even though I just ended up wasting gas on my sets. BTW, did the boys at MP take good care of you?

Josh, I already knew you were beyond help when you swore by the Parks. JUST KIDDING bro!!!! Don't worry, one day you'll see the light. In all seriousness, you shred the Ab! BTW, where's David been? I haven't seen him post on here or your site for a while.

I leave next Saturday for 2 weeks so I hope to ride a few times next week (weather permitting). Let me know if any of you want to hook up and ride.

Shima ~~ David is still around he really don't do a ton of posting on Forums. We ride at least once a week together and talk just about every day.

Speaking of boards, David and I was thinking about having a session with our oldest gear. I myself have the 2004 Parks board and bindings. David said something about Late 90's that he would be rocking.

Random thought: Anybody down for a WW camping trip? Nothing huge and far just bringing back real camping and riding. I have been thinking something like a late Friday to early Sunday. Nothing more than an hour and a half away . I think it's a far shot since we can't get together and have a billards hang out night but worth a shot.

Ryan, Hell no in fact they didn't even talk to me. There was an old guy that came in just before me with his 5 brat wallie teenaged kids. He walked in and said "I want to talk to your 2 best wakeboarders to buy theses kids the best stuff you have" I pretty much got shunnded after that. Its expected and par for the course for that place. I ended up picking it up for 2 bills. Not too bad.

I'm sorry to hear that Mike, that sucks!!! You should have been able to talk to a salesperson at least. 2 bills isn't a bad price for a 08 but honestly thought you would have been able to get it for a little under that.

Josh, just got an email from David, he'll be gone most of the week on business. We'll try to hook up when I get back after June 22.

As for the old gear session, I have a 1998 HL Murray HC with moon boots. Not sure if I want to be riding that though. COme to think of it, I have an even older set up. I have Darin Shaprio's prototype twin tip from 1995 handing on my wall with a pair of sandal bindings, but the board is autographed.

When were you thinking of the camping trip and any particular place you were thinking about? We may be down but it depends on when since I will be on the road for 2 weeks in June and 2 weeks in July. Let me know.
Old    D Mercer (elduke)      Join Date: May 2002       06-01-2009, 11:06 AM Reply   
I have the original Shapiro surf-style board with the flames on it. I think it is circa 1994(?) with the sandals becasue real wakeboarders at that time wore sandals. I landed my first backroll on that board after about 120 tries. I was a lot younger then. It was before Shapiro had the front drilled for a fin. That baby is original.

I have a buddy who still had his original Flight 69. Try edging on that board. She is a slippery fish. I want to see pics of you guys riding old school equipment. YOu definitely need to throw on some neon wetsuits and "Hit It".

Also go behind a boat with a ten foot pole and no ballast. That makes it truly 1996 legit.

D ~~ I just found I have a 94 CWB Blade runner with the rotating sandals. My buddie David has a 97 Wake tech that needs a good bath from hanging on the wall for years.

Shima ~~ Not sure on any dates yet, nothing I have put much effort into yet. I know I will be at Powell July 18th - 25th. Let me know what your dates of travel are and see what we can work out.

Mike ~~ How's the board working out for ya... Heck how is the ankle holding up?

Josh, I'll be gone from June 6-22, July 19-Aug 2 and one weekend in Aug is shot because I have to instruct a coaching seminar but I don't know which weekend yet.

Any idea's on location within a 90' drive? (Starvation, Yuba, etc?)
Old    D.F.T.R. Josh (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005       06-02-2009, 6:55 AM Reply   
Shima ~~ That's leave about 2 weekends free from our travels. Maybe we can shoot for June 26 - 28th or July 3rd -5th. For location I would say Starvation is cutting it being trying to get as many to show up. Something for a quick weekend would work for Yuba or other places we know that's a little closer. We just need to see how many people wants to try it and we can work out locations and everything in between.
PS
Any plans on hitting the rail jam that wakeutah is putting on this weekend at the expo center? They just started to fill the pool yesterday and getting all the frame together. Can't wait to see it, it looks pretty big!

I leave this weekend so I won't be able to go to the rail jam.

FYI, I think Starvation is basically the same amount of driving time as Yuba, but I've only passed the exit for Yuba, never actually been there.

Shima ~~ If that is true they are both in a fair distance for people to make it. There is another place that is a little closer and I'm working on getting in touch with the land owner to see what we can work out for camping. Either way I would just like to see people make it out if they like to camp and take riding back to how it used to be, fighting the crowds.

Yes, I have two Ladies in my family! It's a little of a walk really short drive and I'm trying to hook up an old school RV to help out in a emergency. Also trying to hook up on the price since the only thing they have is a fire pit and I think they are breaking the law to allow and charging people to camp without a potty a certain distance from the camp ground. I lost the ruffing it mode since I said I do.

Bathroom facilities????? Ya all need tuffin those women up. It's too bad you have to limit your camping options to places with bathrooms. You know they sell bathroom tents and porta-potties at most outdoor recreation stores? Nothing like the primitive camping in Lake Powell and Flaming Gorge...and the water is always choice and very accessible since your boat is sitting in the water next to camp.

What's the deal with a short drive from SLC for a WW camp trip? If you're going to do it, do it big and take loads of photos to show the less motivated how good it was.

Here is a taste of that choice camping you are all missing out on......

Nice pics Jason, looks like you guys found a good spot.

I'm just looking out for the ladies. I'm sure it's not very comfortable to deal with "monthly issues" in the wide open area or a small tent with no privacy.

I don't mind doing a WW camping trip that's big or small but history has shown that if it's big, most likely it turns into a big ordeal (is there enough boats to load everyone & there gear, meeting times, costs, etc). Just speaking for me though, I really don't mind roughing it but it's not just "me" anymore. If I'm going to spend the resources, I want to get the most out of it.

Ryan, Im a no go for Friday. I would have to say starvation is the best option for a trip. its 3 times bigger than Yuba and there are bathrooms at all but one of the camping spots.

Yo~~~the Bleyl family will be hitting the following dates at the following places AT A MINIMUM:

Alright the dates are set (somewhat) for trying to get people together for a camping trip. I have it for June 26th - 28th might work the best between some peoples schedule. Where is not 110% for sure but if we can get a group it would be great to get to Starvation for the weekend. Please check your dates and post up if this might work for you and how far you want to drive for the weekend.

I will have 3 others with me, my wife and 2 kids 9 & 5. Also I will have 2 3 seater jetski's.

WakeUtah to host ‘Wake Park’ at the Outdoor Adventure Expo this weekend

Posted on 03 June 2009 by James


If you don’t have anything going on this weekend then you do now. WakeUtah in conjunction with Utah’s Outdoor Adventure Expo, will be hosting a ‘Wake Park’ rail expo at the State Fair Grounds (1000 West NorthTemple) this weekend. Dewey, with OMJ’s help have done it again and spent countless hours putting together one of the sickest rail setups I have seen in quite some time. Come out to the Expo Friday & Saturday and witness the awesome, as local riders try to conquer Dewey’s creation. Show times will be: Friday at: 2, 4, 6, 8pm & Saturday: 11am, 1, 3, 5pm.
In between shows be sure to checkout some of the other activities that will be going on like: The BBQ Cook Off, Mtn Bike Track, Beer Garden, Fishing & Hunting Demos, Boating in the Jordan River and so much more.

Josh,
That weekend will work for me & my family. Starvation is fine, but want to throw FG out there? My wife has never camped on the UT side. We did the Wyoming side with Jason & his family a couple of years ago. I"ll have 3 others with me as well (wife and 2 kids - 10 & 12). I can bring our boat.

Jason, I know you're planning on going that next weekend over the 4th but I have to work. Is there any chance you would be able to make it the week earlier?

EJ & Mike seemed to have spent the most time camping at Starvation the last few years, maybe they can make some recommendations?

Indian bay is cool if you want to beach camp. Its on the southh side of the lake. They have porta a jon's there. Ive never camped at the marina but I know there is no fires and you are packed in. If you want to boat camp you can load up and go to the north east bay and camp. No bathroom but its more remote. Then there is the south east side you go across the dam to take a dirt road to the north I can't remember the name of it. No bathrooms but you can launch the boat from the shore. I like starvation because its size and for the most part the location keeps most of the people away. Ive seen it glass with rain storm and completely blown out with sunny skies. Just like any where else you roll the dice. Oh yeah they train fish cops there so there are some lets say rigid guys working there. Just be sure to do a head check before doing anthing stupid. Ive never had any problems other than them hiding in the bushes watching us drink beer around the camp fire.

Ryan~~~

I like the FG idea for that weekend. It's only about an hour further and you can hit Evanston on the way up for some choice beverages. We can probably make it two weekends in a row. I'm game for anywhere, but my vote is the Gorge for one key reason: size of lake and ability to avoid the wanker tubers and people that have no clue how to drive a boat. That's a little harder to do at Starvation.

E.J.~~~we are shooting for four Powell trips. One is in the books already and the next is BroStock. You should join us on one. I know you are not afraid to boat camp.

Just a heads up that I may have to cancel on the weekend of June 26-28. My Grandpa passed away today & the funeral may be some time during that week.

Thanks for the info on Starvation Mike, very helpful. We camped overnight in the marina last year with Jason & his family. It actually wasn't bad but it did suck that we couldn't build a fire. Indian Bay sounds interesting. Is that where Jackson discovered a rattler under his tent when they were packing up?

Jason, if I'm around the weekend of June 26th, I hope we can plan something.

BTW, I might have blown my right knee out again tonight. It's not the same injury though, that's for sure. After talking to my team trainers tonight on the phone, I'm hoping it's just some left over scar tissue from my previous surgery that got stretched out & strained. Doing some treatment in the morning & getting evaluated before driving to San Diego on Saturday morning.

Ryan sorry to hear about your Gramps, it's never an easy thing to go through my thought are with you and your family.

As far as camping that weekend I think we should be DFTC down for the camping! I have never been to The Gorge or Starvation so I'm game for either. Either way I will bring both my boats, the '02 Super Air and this one:

Wow Dave, that's one heck of a set up!!!

Thanks to all for your thoughts & condolences, it's greatly appreciated!

The issue with my knee won't need surgery, so that's good news. Looks like I have a sublixated (spelling?) fibular head, resulting from a tight right hamstring and it pulled on that part of my knee when it locked up. Also, it seems no ligament or major soft tissue damage. Just stiffness and a little discomfort right now. I have to take it easy for about week or two and not load my hamstring. I guess it's a good thing I'm heading to CA, but had a hook up to ride at Canyon Lake while I was there. Maybe I'll bring my stuff just in case .

See you all when I get back on June 22.

JOSH~~~The drive time to the Gorge is around 3 hours total. Shorter if you don't stop in Evanston for beverages but I'm kind of like a kid in a candy store and get delayed.

RYAN~~~Sorry on all accounts...gramps and knee. Knowing you, it will only take a couple of weeks before you are 100% again. You have my dates for trips so you can plan something with us.

Nice pics, I wish I'd gotten more creative. I've got a 70-200 F4, w/no stabilizer, it was a floor model from B&H. I also shot w/my pos kit lens and a majority of them were shot w/my $100 50mm 1.8. One thing to remember to always show where to rider is coming from and where they're going. Check out this site http://www.wheelsandwax.com/ I've learned a lot from there. I've only been shooting about a year now and learn more every time I go out.

That's my replacement, I had to get rid of the Sportster. The wife and I would get our asses kick on that little thing. Sold it and picked up this touring bike and is night and day of a ride not only with us both but by myself also. Thanks for the love, now quit the rain and lets ride!

Right on. FYI, I get back from my training camp on the 20th but have to fly home for a funeral on the 24th and won't be back until the 27th. Hopefully my knee is healed before then so we can hook up to ride.

Russ ~~ We were just talking about this over morning coffee in the office. June + 11 days of rain ='s a LOT of water. From what I can tell on the web cams Powell is crazy high and I can't wait to get there next month. Here is the link to their web cam and just in the last month the water has gone up like crazy. http://livelakeview.com/lakes/lakepowell/bullfrogmainlaunchramp.html

Speaking of Powell, did everybody hear the mandatory mussel inspection before you launch. If no officers are at post you don't launch. It sucks but people can't be honest and everybody has to suffer. What ever it takes to keep our water background beautiful.

Buck ~~ Just hit the jack pot and got invited on a ride heading down. Looks like I'm pulling an all nighter to get packed up. I'm sure I will have plenty of pics to share when I get back.

Huge love to my wife! She is the one that pushed me to go since I got the invite. The women insists I go everywhere, she sends me to Vegas on a whim and now she suggests I head to bro stock for the weekend. She is the BEST, happy fathers day and birthday to me (June is the best month for me)! Love you baby!

Matt, did you purchase them without getting permission??? Shame, Shame. I'm still out of commission though. My knee isn't healed yet and this rate, will be a while before I can ride again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though!

For sure Matt! Today, my knee is feeling the best it's been since it happened but still not ride ready. I'll be driving into SLC around 3am on Sunday morning. If the weather holds up and I'm not to tired from the long drive, we may head out.

Have a safe trip down!

Back from Bro Stock! Pretty cool were rolling up inside the cove and somebody is yelling "Josh!" and holding up a beer. Yep on the top of that house boat was my good friend Bleyl, from there I knew this was going to be one of my best trips yet. The first beer was down with Jason and crew and the other 100 or so was with the most random people. The first night I rolled upon a kegger and went to bed about 4 or 5 ish. I didn't get a ton of pics being I was intoxicated more than 92% of the time and didn't feel like dropping my camera in the water like a few people I was by. I will have a few pics up sometime after I get my brain back.

Hello all. I'm new and it seems that you are pretty close knit, but I'm just a dude who loves the wake board. I had a boat but it just pooped out on me. I'm always ready to be a third.

Nice to met you all.

Travis ~~ Welcome to UT, we try and get out most Sunday's mornings and just maybe might start Monday mornings if the weather decides to clear. Hit me up with a PM with your contact info and I bet we can get you on the water and meet a few of the people on this site.

Jason ~~ Take me with you! PLEASE!

We got on the water today and nothing but rain, wind and white caps. Got to meet Greg that moved to UT from KY and the dude can throw down on a board. Rode again with Rob that just revived his SANTE. All a good time but the water Sucked today. David posted a few pics at http://dftrdownfortheride.ning.com/photo if your interested.

Howdy fellars. Glad to see you all are getting out, I can't believe how freaking cold it is up here. Hasn't stopped raining for 2 weeks now. Actually saw a dude on the river the other day trunking, no way it was over 50 air temp.

Finally back home from my training camp but heading to HI from Wed-Sat afternoon for my grandpa's funeral. I'm hoping to get the boat out on the water since it's been a couple of weeks.

Travis, welcome to UT. Hopefully we can meet up to ride soon.

Travis ~ your welcome on my boat anytime we are always looking for a third.

Ryan ~ let me know if you can sneak out before you head to HI Wednesday, my schedule is wide open this week so far. We got out Saturday but the water was so crappy I didn't subject myself to that beating.

Hey Ryan no sweat if you can't, your schedule sounds tight. Lets ride when you get back, maybe the rain will have stopped by then! Travel safe.

Matt, didn't get to ride. Wind started howling but at least the kids got their sets in. Have a great day on the water.

Dave, I may be able to get out tomorrow morning if you're up for it. I'll find out my schedule this afternoon so I can let you know then. You know of anyone that might be a third for morning time?

So on Saturday morning I am out riding before the storms hit. I bought some Ronix One bindings on closeout from boardersbestbuy.com last fall and started sporting them this year. Very comfy boot. 4th time using them Saturday morning coming around a bit late on the backroll and catch the rear edge. All of the sudden the board is floating away free and my boots are on my feet. I totally snapped the baseplates.

Needless to say I was pissed. But I called Ronix this morning and Bryan is sending me a new set of plates in the mail today. He stated they had some bad batches of baseplates and mostly they are good. But he was very cool. very good to work with. So I am thinking these guys are good cats. They seem like a straight up good company. I am happy when someone acknowledges an issue and is ready to rectify it.

Does anyone want to buy some used 4 times 2008 Ronix ones? New baseplates!! Just kidding. They are some of the most comfortable boots I have ever owned.

I feel better!

D

I enjoy the warm greetings. Thank you all. To answer your questions I'm down in Provo, but work takes me to Salt Lake about every day.

I'm always free on fridays except this week my little brother is graduating basic training. So I'm heading to that this weekend.

Jason- isn't this weather freaking crazy so much rain and then last night no rain but so windy that it capsizes a boat in Utah lake. I just hope that we are done with that stuff. I see wanting to head back to powell.

Aloha!
