Hey Mike, weather looks pretty dicey most of the week. Maybe Thursday will work out.

David, I may be able to get out, but not sure yet. Please keep me posted. I get back into town tomorrow night.

Well guys... It's VERY official that Mr. DFTR cannot surf worth a ****.

Anybody looking for Sunday sessions?

Fail like a poser . surf blog is the place. No camera but here's one shot. I paddled out to a wave like in the background and almost died I think! I'm ready to give it another go...

David ~~ No fins... NOT legit. Never could keep the board straight to paddle in. THEN no leash so if I lost the board I was screwed!

David with some boot! That wake looks bang'n...

Right on guys... Looks like an epic time with flat water.

Vic has been in a wetsuit since the water was high 40's... Crazy Mo Fo!

Shima ~~ That sure is a sweet looking setup... How's it treating you so far?
Old     (ryan_shima1)      Join Date: Sep 2002       05-13-2011, 9:47 AM Reply   
Josh, getting more comfortable on it every time I ride it. Just have to get use to how much it locks to the water vs. being looser like the Vice.

I heard on Fox 13 that there is a wake park being built in Eagle Mountain next year. Anyone know details, location, all of the good stuff. This would be ridiculous fun.

Thanks for the input.

Rumor has the first System 2.0 setup to be done by July 2011 and a full 6 tower cable by next year!

This is a good read but Fox says it was approved

Hey guys,

I am newish to Utah, and no longer a boat owner. Need to get hook ups with pulls, just let me know how to connect with you guys. I can drive, back up trailers, gas money, etc.

Eagle Mountain wake park would be a blast! I have been wanting to try a cable pull FOREVER. Anyone make the trip to RENO for the one out there? I want to.
Old     (ryan_shima1)      Join Date: Sep 2002       05-19-2011, 8:04 PM Reply   
Hey newwhit,
Welcome to the thread and to Utah. It shouldn't be a problem to find a pull locally. What's your work schedule like or when are you most available to ride? My schedule changes constantly but if you post up or pm your contact info to a few on here with boats, I'm sure you'll be able to hook up a pull (as soon as the weather gets nice again!).

Reno is a bit too far of drive for me to hit a wake park. My friend went last year and said the Reno location was a blast and the site was growing but personally speaking, I'll much rather be behind the boat.

Guys, looks like great water! and Finally some good weather! Can't wait to get out there. Hope you guys don't mind an intermediate riding with you.

Give me a week, and I will be ready!

Thanks to everybody on here I rode with! Newwhit you wont find a better group of guys to ride with! I wouldnt even consider myself intermediate and this is the most helpful group of ppl you will find! I will be back in town often for work and you guys better believe that I will bugging you to go ride! Can't get enough of this stuff!

Shima ~~ Thanks! Once I got the wake handled I was get'n some boot. The MB F21 is no joke, we did have an extra 450 in the bow though. Felt so damn good to take a set without a drysuit... SPRING is here, cant wait for the super early AM sets! I would guess the water to be in the LOW 60's, it was warmer in the water than riding.

Vic ~~ Have a safe trip to your new home... Can't imagine any other way to say good bye to UT except from the EPIC we had today. Let's get Dustin (MC) in the loop and get a Northern UT weekend at Lake Powell. I think everybody would be more than happy to take care of his boat and leave it better then before we got there.

Whit ~~ Bro is was so needed by me to finally get some good water. I havent rode in a month and no better way to get back in the saddle then with great water and a legit wake to boot! Good times...

Well I finally got the boat out on the water this past weekend in between the chance of showers. That being said my oldest son (15 year old) has been working the past couple of years to go W2W shouldn't have taken this long. If I have the rope shortened he is fine and can make it no problem, but Saturday he told me to leave the rope out so I did. I reminded him that it was his first ride of the year. In short he came up short and couldn't make it W2W. As a dad he will not let me try and coach him and I may be telling him wrong anyway.

I would like to get him some lessons or I'll even put up the boat, gas and free riding for someone to spend sometime with him so that he'll listen to someone else other than his dad. We ride at Willard a lot and sometime Pineview if that helps.

I'm not offering his services, but I have 2 words for you.... Ryan Shimabukuro.

If you can find Ryan out on Willard, bet he'd have your son going W2W in one run. Not only does he know wakeboarding like the back of his hand, but he is a world class level coach. Those two things do wonders when it comes to noticing what someone is doing and fixing the wrong, dialing in the right and putting it all together.

E.J. 's got real talk... Shima is the man when it comes to needing advice! In one run he helped me land a HS BS 180 Blind... Best part is he will be the first to the swim platform to congrat ya. Willard is his home lake so you have the upper hand to ride with him!

Alright I just have to know... Is this our very own Mr. Rogers doing a dude on dude slide run in Lake Powell... I'm thinking yes but I need more people to vote on it! Check out this video and at 1:11 seconds I think we see Rogers doin the dirty down the houseboat slide.

Kelly, Willard is also my home lake (I avoid Pineview as much as possible). Anyways, l would love to help your son out if we can arrange it. I'll be out of town this weekend (Fri-Sun) but let me know what your schedule allows, and we'll see what we can set up.

Willard was beautiful last night (and buggy)

My 3 year old gave the kneeboard a try which was awesome.

The new ballast system rocks! My fill/dump times are do much better than the dreary days of handoumps LOL. Hoping to get back out soon.

EJ, nice pic! I enjoyed seeing that red U! Looked like fun

I have access to a wake boat for a lake powell trip! the only problem is a tow vehicle. I dont have one.

Any suggestions? The major car rental places don't allow towing.

I am in northern UT headed to Page, AZ, where the houseboat is located

Shima ~ Powell was REALLY nice and it just gets better being able to pull the houseboat up to the shore and set camp. I tell you the anchors are a pain in the ass to get set and wind proof. We only lost one anchor but everybody was on it and got it under control in less than 5 min. Little by little I have pics coming up on Facebook but I'm still trying to catch up for being gone.

Shima ~~ Depends on the side of the lake... We really never had trouble with water demons since we were lost WAY back in a canyon. UT yes its going to destroy your **** but on guard on Powell your 200% ok in the back of no mans land. Problem is we played beer pong more than riding! You know a real vacation hits when you don't do NOTHING!!!

All ~ we went to Flaming Gorge last weekend for the first trip of the year (sounds lame but we were busy doing some other pretty cool *****). The riding was super good (I had two sets per day of near perfect water). I also went out on Friday morning (yesterday) for some sets on Jordanelle. Friday morning sets will be going down until the air and water gets too chilly. Anyone who wants to ride on Friday morning can hit me up at

SESSION ON! What about leaving your boat and joining us for a early weekend session at "The Spot?"

So I stalk you guys some times to see wth you are up to and I have to say, this is the quietest I have seen this board in 4 years. You are all either super ass busy or just getting old and fat/lazy like me I hope you are out riding and enjoying the summer.

Mike there seems to be a distinct lack of energy in this Northern UT crowd... maybe its the fact that our resident energy bar specialist packed up and left town. I guess it's time for me to hit up and remedy that situation!

Anthony, wassup bro!!! I was just thinking about you the other day. Are you still in ID? Do you get out on the water at all? As for not much thread traffic here on WW, I believe that the new layout of the site has some of the old guys not using it much. I know I don't check it every day like I use to, and use Facebook a lot more to keep in touch with everyone that rides.

Mike, how's the North East treating you? I haven't seen many pics from you man, stop slackin!!!! And I miss the gorilla bars!
