Shannon, Maybe I am getting old or because I have a daughter, but be careful sending an open post with your phone number and offering to go out on a stranger's boat. I have ridden with strangers many times and 99% of the time I have met some super cool people. But I have had a few weird ones. I think most anyone on this site would be cool, but be careful. You don't want to end up miles from a dock and things get funky. It would be best even if it was a friend of a friend. You don't want to end up in the Boat Bun Thread...
Find a local wake club and hit a mixer or two on land before hopping in a boat.
