Hey All,

Looking for a third, fourth, fifth, whatever. Delaware river between Trenton and Burlington (can go further south if needed) weekend mornings, and a few weeknights mixed in as well.

I lost my whole crew due to other family commitments and such, then lost a season to an injury, so I'm just getting back in to it this year. Currently riding behind an I/O with tower, ballast, and steep prop. Wake is crisp, boat holds a very consistent speed once weighted. The boat is now 5 years old and I've owned it since new. It's reliable, clean, and you don;t have worry about being stranded on a piece of junk. I'm an average at best rider (wake to wake heel and toe, some grabs, and surface tricks). Just looking to have fun.

I've collected a variety of boards over the past few seasons due to trying different things for the old crew, so your own equipment isn't necessary if you don't have. What I am looking for is someone who wants to drive, and ride, and just have fun.

Let me know!

Sent you a text at your new number, you're welcome with us any time. Usually Sunday mornings. Would be nice to have a reliable crew to do some week nights if anyone comes out of the woodwork. Last year sucked, hardly got out with rain every weekend.

Whats up guys. I also ride out of the Florence boat ramp once in awhile. I used to ride alot but over the years lost the people and time not to mention back problems as I am getting older. I rode once before with cadunkle years ago. I am a very basic rider with a 1999 Tige direct drive with perfect pass and an okay wake. It's an older boat but it gets the job done. I have been out just twice last year and this year. It's a stretch right now but I may try to drop in next friday afternoon if either one of you are interested.

I'm in for Friday if the weather is good. As it stands it may rain but more concerning is the wind depending on the course of that hurricane. I'll probably try to get something together for Sunday AM too. Wind should be calmed down by then.

I'll send you a PM...

The weather didn't quite cooperate today so I'm shooting for next Friday Sept 13

Headed out tomorrow, Sunday 8AM at Florence, if anyone else within the Philly area wants to join. Kind of a last minute thing for tomorrow. We usually do Sunday mornings though.

Jim I'm in for next Friday or most any Friday. I have a suit and am good to ride until it gets to freezing overnight. We're getting into prime season now so far as weekend clowns now that kids are back to school, but it gets hard to find a crew when it's the 50s or less in the morning. I do have a heater on my boat and a heated driver seat.

I have not been here in a while. I saw the title and had to look. Hey Jim see your still at it. I still have my boat and we went out a few times after your post. I have my boat getting winterized now. Maybe next year we can go out!

I'd be down to ride that stretch with anyone who needs a third (next season).

George, if you want to get out again this season I haven't winterized yet, I normally wait until the night it's scheduled to get below freezing and am out in the cold and dark getting it done. Heated driver seat and a heater with two tubes and outlet under the dash. I'm good for any weekend morning between now and freezing. I'd like to get out at least once more, the river is still relatively warm at low 60s.

Also, not sure if you have a street legal dual sport to ride trails in NJ but I've been getting out most weekends on my XL600 riding in Wharton. You do some sick MX racing but I don't think my old junk could keep up with that! There was a big enduro event last weekend in Wharton, pretty cool.

Hi All,

I am a newbie. Living near Sesame Place in PA. I used to kiteboard a lot when living on the island but in NJ the weather is not so accommodating for that. I did cable park couple of times so I know how to ride a board (hehe). I would like to join a crew willing to clean the boat, share the gas and do whatever. If somebody wants a crew member please do let me know!

Hopefully in another month we'll have a better idea of when we all can get wet on the river. Being cooped up with social distancing has me looking forward to riding even more this year. See ya'll when the weather warms up.
