I'm going to be spending about every other week in Ft Wayne, INand should have time off while I'm there. I've seen plenty of billboards for dealerships and my girlfriend said she saw some people shredding on a lake near the highway there today. Curious about any crews that I could catch a tow from. I'm always more than happy to bring gas money, help clean up or wipe down, and I recently sold my Mobius XLV but I am more than willing to drive and help out in any way.

Cheers,
Cody

I have a summer house in Angola, Indiana. It's about an hour outside of Ft. Wayne. Most of the lakes in the area are in my area, along the northern border of Indiana and Michigan and near the border with Ohio. We're actually in a similar situation, we've got a 2008 X-2 with about 2400lbs of ballast loaded in it, and no one to ride with besides myself, my buddy, and occasionally my girl. We've had a place on the lake forever, but only picked our boat up about three years ago now. I've been trying to find some other local people, as my friends and I are the primary boaters in the family now.

There are alot of wakeboats in the area, but very few riders it seems. Occasionally you'll get a couple boats out on the lake with riders, but most people are out there casually for the pull around the lake at busy hours. VERY FEW riders/boats out early morning or late evenings when the water is calm, who know what they are doing. We managed to hook up with a guy local to us, who we rode with at the very tail end of the season last year. I think he is one of the better riders in our area, but around the end of his set he slammed hard and broke his ribs (he thought), haven't heard from him yet this season.

We've been trying to find a couple local riders similar in age to us (just graduated college group, usually ride with about 6 people in the boat), who want to ride more than party. There's no shortage of people who want to party around here it seems, unfortunately decent people/riders are slim/hard to find.

We're on Snow Lake, part of the Lake James chain of lakes.

There are a ton of riders up in the Wawasee area, most of us work at Bart's. A few of us have boats and ride pretty much everyday but we're about an hour or so away from the fort. Stop in the shop and talk to us and maybe we can go out sometime and ride.

Cody,

I live in Ft. Wayne and have an 08 210. Send me a PM and we'll see if we can hook up. Im 31 and married...you? We usually go out early saturday mornings at a local reservoir. Not big partiers...just like to get out and ride when possible (maybe even some weekday evenings). Im probably an intermediate rider, but am willing to ride with whomever. Let me know!

For sure man, I'll hit you up the next time we're up there. I'm not gonna be out there till about the first or second week of July, then I'll be there pretty much every weekend until October, and for parts of the week here and there. I'll shoot you a PM on my way up next time. We're out there in the white and blue X-2 with the grey bimini if you happen to see the boat driving around.

Also, looks like you're in one of the fingers/channels, which one out curiosity?
