Im relatively new to the North Jersey area and don't know very many riders. I have a boat and am happy to take my boat out on either lake hopatcong or greenwood lake after work. Weekends are sucky on those lakes so I try and hit the lake during the week. Its an 86 ski nautique with 1500lbs of ballast and a beast of a wake.
Or if you have a boat and need a 3rd, or 4th, or 7th it would be awesome to go out on some other boats and throw down some gas money.
I am not limited to just these two lakes, they are just the two most well known ones in the north jersey area. Ill drive an hour after work to ride with a good group of people. Everyone I know is trying to learn how to ride, which is fine but its not the same as going out and seeing other people pushing their skills and making you want to do the same.
