Recently swapped pastimes from road racing motorcycles to something more family focused a new X30. No stranger to boats or boardsports (surfing, snow boarding) but new to tow boats and the Jacksonville creeks and rivers. Looking for some other owners to hookup with and learn from as I educate myself on this new endeavor.

Trickskier should be along sometime today, he is in JAX and can help.
Skidog is farther up to your north, but he will only educate you on the "Bouncy Bars" and where the Hooters are!

Now why would you go and say such a thing?!?!:D I'm not denying it or anything like that, but man, why roll me under the bus on a Monday?
By the way, how do you like your X-30? Here's a shot of mine. Also, you need to try and make it to the Reunion that Bay Area Water Sports is having a the end of this month down in Polk City @ the Water Ski Hall of Fame

I love the X30... it looks great in my driveway - My wife had some "must haves" in order for this thing to hit the water - none of which i have done yet. I'm hopfull that I can take it out this weekend by either nailing one of thoes online CG classes or finding a group to head out with that "knows" what they're doing - she has ZERO faith in my abilities - LOL

I'm shooting for Sunday... just need to get an extra set of hands to go to help with one of three things

1. Launching the boat
2. Parking the truck
3. Making sure that kid doesnt jump overboard while I'm doing one of the above

I would suggest the Goodby's Lake Ramp on San Jose Blvd just south of Baymeadows Rd. New, Wide & a lot of parking. From there head out to the St. Johns, go North to downtown & The Landing or South to Dr's Lake.....Whitey's Fish Camp, Julington Creek.....Clarks Fish Camp or even further south past the Shands Bridge to Outback Crab Shack. PM me and I'll give you my phone number if you want to discuss. Have fun!

Hey Tricky, Are you headed to the game or the reunion? I thought you said you were going to the game, but I can't tell from the last post, maybe I'm just not reading it right.

Going to the Game Saturday......Watch the Blue Angles from the St. Johns Sunday. Bring your boat and join us Sunday! BTW hope you have a great time & good luck at the reunion.

I am pretty sure I am gonna be a hurting after Sat. at the reunion, (and the Ga-Fla also)(my prediction is Fla. by 21), so I doubt I'll make it to the Blue Angels. However, that doesn't mean that you should not take any pics on Sunday and post them Sun. night!
BTW, if you here a loud explosion to the north of you tonight, don't be alarmed, it will be just me, blowing up this SLOW A$$ computer!!!!!!!!!

I'll take some pics Sunday. Don't know if I'll be sober enough to post Sunday night though. Don't forget we have a side bet on the game.....I am going to call Jim tomorrow, hope he's not too mad at me. This is the first Southern Reunion I'm going to miss.
