I hear ya Nick, it sucks to see people take for granted what those of us who would be out every day if possible don't have. It's that way with everything though

Yes, Everyone please dock your boat while we are on the water. It is kinda sad when you see a gucci fully loaded black x-2 towing a tube, like we saw last week at Powell. Oh well kids gotta have fun too.

We have on the rivers we use the same thing. Everyone has equal rights to use the public waterways, but the tube pros behind the High dollar boats really get to me. It is to the point now that we will pick up a rider and go have a chat with the boat driver. Most people have know idea they are doing anything wrong (pulling tubes on perfect water, power turns, passing to the rear of your boat when you are stopped, trucking, etc. etc. etc.)We are polite, let them know what they are doing, and we go find another place. Its a public place and they are there to have fun just like you and me....but general common sense is just not there! We are not perfect on the water, but we do try and use some etiquette towards others on the water. I just wish that the pro tubers would buy the brain option with there boats.

We watched a brand new bright orange SANTE all day today pulling tubes, kneeboards and double skiers. They didn't even have a board in the boat. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen.

Ask them for a ride. Kooks like that get stoaked if you can jump the wake and if you can flip, then you are in. If you can raley they will give you their first born daughter, and if you spin they dont understand how cool you really are. There is a good thing about rich people with boats so exploit it.

Who ever said a boat with tower is for "wakeboarding only?" The way I see it is, It's a tow boat and the boat owners should be entitled to tow whatever they desire.

There is a really nice supra on our lake that seems to have not moved at all this year. I am not out on the water 24/7, but in all the time I have been out, it has not moved.

im 18 now actually, gotta change the profile. i'm not saying that i dislike you because you tube or whatnot behind your boat, im saying if these people are gonna have the boats for wakebaording, atleast use is for wakeboarding, not just tubing.

i agree with you on the SUV thing Tim. Why do people buy them to put rims on them and just drive them around town? Use it for what its supposed to be used for, same with trucks, escpecially when they buy the 4x4 and put rims on them, with a wing as well.
