Florida, in the greater Orlando area, land is cheap and if you can't find a third there is always owc. So you can ALWAYS have pull no matter what and they do night riding at o-dub also. Plus I can also most guarentee you'll meet a bunch a pros when you're down there. I was down there for only a week last april and managed to get to hang out with murray, adkison, and nunn at the "Murriott" like 4 days after he broke his leg. Florida is defenitly the place to go!

Aren't the So. Cal lakes super congested though? Nor cal is the best if you like to mix in some snowboarding.

How serious are you looking to get? If you just want to recreationally board yr round then follow the sun and go south, but if you want to get into the industry a lot of big events go down in O-town, that ryhmes, lol,

Nick, I used to be really good friends with Tom & Lori Swan. They have a son Nick that should be 17YO. Any relation?

no relation that i know of Notidad.

Something very ironic though, the lake i live on has two swan's on it. Both names are the exact same as my parents Bill and Kathy, we get their mail sometimes because that live on the same street as us just the other side of the lake.

You don't need a third in Florida, just a mirror.

Approx. 12 people have died from Alligators in the last 50 years in FL. Statistically, in FL, you are much more likely to get killed by a falling coconut then an alligator. Some young kid got killed by an alligator about 6 months ago. He was swimming in some river with alligators all day during mating season and his buddies got out of the water, and screamed and tried to pull him out of the water, but he refused to get out. His own fault.

Southern California lakes are very congested. The only question is whether the lakes will remain congested even in the winter because of the number of new riders joining the sport each year.

Yup, on the Dead River.
Florida sucks. jus kiddin
It's usually little kids that get killed.
People that swim at night or in an area that is secluded get attacked occasionally, but rarely get killed.
Lachlan's the guy with the big sac.

No doubt Steven.
Neither the state nor the lakes are getting any bigger. It will get busier in the winters over time, but not that much. The majority of growth in the sport comes from families and I would guess that those who ride on a regular basis in the winter are mostly the hardcore riders. This might be a generalization, but your always gonna lose a lot of the crowds in the winter no matter what.

lachlan is the man! How about Texas? i would think that it would be awesome.

where's the live for Texas? I haven't heard anything about New Mexico. I'm cold as in Ohio
Old    scooper            10-04-2003, 2:52 PM Reply   
Where in OH are you, Tye? I live in Northeast IN but wakeboard in Northwest OH. I took my last ride a couple of weekends ago (already winterized the boat).

I would think Arizona might be a good place to live. Thoughts?

While you are here Ryan, Have a Nor Cal Sandwich.
Before you place your order at the deli, make sure you add extra surf. It doesn't cost anything extra!! Just bring your wettie for the winter months.
If you ever need a pull when your here -Email me.
