My wife and I are thinking about relocation possibilities and I'm interested in learning about Austin (and wakeboarding in Austin). I am hoping that some of the locals will tell me about it.
I'm interested in:
1. Generally, what are the good parts/bad parts of living in Austin? 2. Which neighborhoods/area do you recommend if living in Austin? 3. Where do you go wakeboarding (and how far do you drive from Austin to get there)? 4. The typical water conditions on weekends and on weekday afternoons? 5. Generally, what are the good parts/bad parts of wakeboarding in and around Austin? 6. The length of the wakeboarding season for the average joe (e.g. water temp / air temp above 60)? 7. Is the wakeboarding social scene pretty active?
I'm looking for information on both the good and the bad about Austin. Thanks for your help!
