I agree that there needs to be etiquette (sp?) no matter what watersport.

If I happen to be surfing and boarders start riding near me, then I try to keep my wake straight and no powerturns(I always idle, spin, back to my rider). We even sit and wait till the boarders are past us before starting.

Now if I'm boarding and see rollers, well just hit em like double-ups.

didn't know there were a few wakeboarders that really don't like surfing, probably because they can't do it or don't let go of the rope, so they are really just wakeskating.

I love the bit about owning the water!! Get over it! Everybody loves the butter. First come first serve as far as I'm concerned.

It's a shame that these guys feel like this. Really everyone who is on the water should know the etiquette(sp?). If someone is wakeboarding/skating in an area then by all means go find another area to wakesurf. And Vice versa. And if the guy wakesurfing is in the good water then you should have gone out earlier. I am not taking sides because I love wakeskating as much as surfing. But because of a few people not being considerate we all get a bad wrap as wakesurfers.

And how about the guy who had the beach wave breaking and was all "try and paddle out at one of my local spots" GOOB

Might not a beach break but definitely not as bad as you make it out to be. I surfed there when I was in Santa Cruz and it was nothing compared to some of the spots in Baja

edit: and that's beside the point which is nobody has the right to tell me what I can or cannot do on a public waterway. I pay the same taxes you do.

I bet it's the same story that water skiers told wakeboarders a few years back! You guys need to move to less populated areas:-)

I like how they talk about all the "newbie" wakesurfers doing speed turns yet every boat owner who wakeboards is "experienced". Give me a break, I see just as many clueless boat owners indulging in wakeboarding as anything else. When wakesurfing there is no need to get back to the rider quickly (because they're not as far away.)

So if anyone does do speed turns, please don't and respect everyone else's right to the water

I meant Beach break meaning Ocean wave sorry. Still will surf it if I make it there. You will never tell me where I can surf.

And as for the speed turns. How can you speed turn when your running at 10mph?????
Old     (caskimmer)      Join Date: Apr 2006       07-02-2009, 12:48 PM Reply   
...and the rider is 4x as close to the boat.

Seriously, a speed turn would save all of about 3 seconds and I personally haven't witnessed it while wakesurfing. I mostly just see wakeboarders behind Bayliners doing this.

I moved up here to not deal with tons of people, but everyone has the right to the water.

Here is your choice, if you want it all to yourself.,+ca&sl l=35.976805,-78.906843&sspn=0.369798,0.358086&g=durham&ie=UTF8& ll=39.682206,-121.887431&spn=0.01085,0.015653&t=h&z=17

This is about 30 mins from me in Durham, a private lake on his property for wakeboarding.

Here is another. +Drive++Durham,+CA+95938&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=86.887675,128.232422&ie=UTF8&t=h&z= 17&iwloc=A

And it is for sale for just under $2 Million.

And last but not least, these guys are neighbors.,+ca&sl l=35.976805,-78.906843&sspn=0.369798,0.358086&g=durham&ie=UTF8& ll=39.676888,-121.882539&spn=0.021701,0.031307&t=h&z=16

This is all in Durham, you would never guess driving through Durham.

There's so many those in Phoenix. I saw at least 6 of them flying over just a small section of the city.

Y, they are cool, but tough to surf on. We rode on one for an INT event, they are 6-8 feet deep usually. Don't know what it would take to build one at 20ft. And they put some crazy chemicals in them to keep it blue, nasty stuff to get in.

nah, just go riding on the Delta instead. Apparently there's butter all day long and the wakeboarders aren't uptight at all.

BTW- I know others here wakeboard & wakeskate as well. I suggest writing O'brien letting them know how disappointed you are that that a representative of their company would publicly speak in such a negative manner towards a growing segment of the wakesports community.

anyone who can actually surf and rides big waves doesnt hype themselves up like you. sorry to say yes these waves have power but there not really big waves. much rather surf the sidewalks then big mushy outer bridges.I really do appreciate the laughs tonight. whatever you do wakesurf,wakeboard,waterski or surf have fun enjoy the water. Try not to talk so much hype about your spot santa cruz is so crowded and everyone is or thinks there a surfer here.

so jack, on the real. past couple days we got some bowls off the wall at blacks. ill be there in the morning, or 4 pile, gonna try to grovel for a couple before the parade shows up. lets get a few squash this bs and get back to what this site and are love for water sports is about. cool!!! also, when its flat ive been really digging stand up paddling, looking for a setup on cl right now. i got alot of buddies that are big time paddlers, like warf to warf i.e. capitola to carmel types. so if you see a wobbly dude with a oar gettin his paddle on heading up north when its flat this summer its probably me, lol. my bad bro. this is wake world not hate world.(borat voice) high five!!

and to clear this thing up, wake surfing is all good. tubing is all good. its just about respecting each other on and off the water. each to his own. we all have bigger issues in norcal right now anyway besides hating on each other. the things are going between scc lakes with inspections and delta waters pump stations and so cal waters. we might be running out time and places to ride. we gotta stick together on this s--t.

Wow, I can't believe you people who are here telling any of us where we can surf! Who died and made you God!!! It was really hot a couple weeks ago, and we were on vacation. We were surfing Old River and having a great time. We decided to go to Union Point to eat. We decided to surf there. Soooo, we ended up surfing Vics to get to Union Point. I never thought I was doing anything wrong, and I still don't!! If I want to surf Vics, I will. You people who are doing all this talk about respect. My question to YOU IS. HOW ARE YOU RESPECTING US BY GETTING ON THIS BOARD AND TALKING C--P ABOUT PEOPLE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW??? I am a very respectable person. I'm all about respecting people. I have been on this Delta for over 25 years. I raised my family on this Delta. First we slalom skied. Then we wakeboarded and air-chaired and rode the sky ski. Then we started surfing. I was seriously injured 5 years ago and due to serious permanent nerve damage in my leg, can no longer ski, wakeboard, or sky ski. It is impossible for me to put my leg in the boots because it causes me excruciating pain. I was involved in a dog attack that left me with a severe neurological condition that is so painful, that 4 out of 5 people do not ever return to work after getting this condition. But I can surf because there are no boots. I know for a fact that's it's much easier to surf in smooth water. I surf with the BEST and know for a fact that it's easier for them to surf in smooth water, especially if they are performing the top technical tricks, which they are. So you people that say it's a rough water sport, obviously have never performed the tops tricks that the people I surf with perform. Due to my injury, I was not able to perform any watersports for 4 years. So when I was able to get back in the water and surf, I was so GRATEFUL!! I'm grateful to be able to perform a sport that I truly love. Maybe you people that are talking cr-- about surfing, should just be grateful that you live in a free country that allows you to CHOSE which sport to perform. This is the 4th of July week. Doesn't that have something to do with Independence???? I think the bigger problem that we have on our water ways is the DRUNKS!!!

good for you Debbie for dealing with adversity and getting back on the water. Although I think because of your injury you're technically "allowed" to surf. Which is nothing but a strawman argument for me how do they know if someone is surfing because of an injury and why does that have to be a prerequisite to be able to surf, you should be able to do it for whatever reason you want. No 1 group has the right to tell another group what they can and cannot do. 8 years ago (as well as today) 1 wakeboard boat would do the same damage to the water as 5 waterski boats so I don't understand why they think this is any different.

Oh yeah Debbie didn't you see, the people who live in Discovery Bay don't want you to surf there either. Oh wait the person who said that doesn't live there.

I would LOVE for a boat of wakeboarders to pull over the Black & Blue crew to tell us that the water is too smooth and we need to wait. LOVE for that to happen.

I just finally got up on a surf board this weekend and don't intend to stop any time soon. We're lucky enough to surf on the Columibia and have tons places to surf.
We wakeboard most of the time and have always made room for each other out here!
Everyone just calm down and have some fun, isn't that why we're all out there in the first place.

anyone find it ironic that the person who started that thread wakeboards with 4920lbs of ballast?


you know My Set up!

1,100 LBS (triangle bow sac as full as possible)
750lbs Lengthwise in the Middle
750lbs Internal in the floor
650lbs on the Back seat
2 x 85lb Small square sacs to balance the boat on the seats or floor
2 x 750lbs in the Trunk on either side of the engine.
4920lbs Grand total, not include people and Gear.

I know some of you run with a heavy wake but that's more than twice what the average wakesurf boat is loaded with}
