Glad to see a wakeboarder so concerned about those people trying to load and iunload their boats, nice wake for those docks too...and you wonder why surfing and ballasts are starting to become illegal on some lakes????

My boat is not in the no wake zone, there's no launch ramp out here in the back of the lake along with no people and that dock is a floating dock that get knocked around more that you can imagine when there's a bunch of boats on the water....in fact you can hardly stand on it when it's busy and I'm outside the buoys anyway (the boat, at least 50 feet) so this close pass happens 100's of time a day by me and other boaters. As you can see from all my other pics I post this isn't something we normaly do.....and are you going to tell me you've never went around a bouy? :rolleyes:

Let me clarify for you dudes that think I'm pulling my kid in the NWZ, there's a bunch of areas on this lake that aren't just launch areas but still have no wake zones and at some point you will be close to these bouys.

Perhaps no wake regulations are different there. Up here in the North, that would still be a no wake zone either side of the no wake buoy.

I've been to areas like that and they are to protect an endangered species nest or underwater hazards, docks, loading ramps, eagle's nests, etc...Maybe in Arizona they have an over abundance of no wake buoys that they just place randomly...yeah thats probaby the case.

They usually put out the bouys that say hazard on them just like the ones that say over head power lines. I have never seen a floating eagles nest.:confused:

No kidding!..seems like I've had to explain myself on a few pics lately :rolleyes: what's funny is there were some guys riding behind a CC in front of us and the rider did a hop up and scraped the bottom of his board across the top of a bouy and landed it.....imagine if I had got a shot of that and posted it? :eek:

That's a lot of buoys, but I'm more concerned about you missing that double up. Tisk, tisk. ...and those shorts again. :D ;) :cool:

(I wish I could read what it says at the top of SkiDog's avatar - I got the rest of it. lol)

Coz, you've known for a long time that if you get banned for posting pics it's due to the size not the content.:D

Some of us still like to have fun here.:cool:

I have been on that lake skiing slalom over 1000 times in the 80's 90's. The no wake and obstruction markers are identical in size and shape. The bouy he was going around is there to keep you from hitting underground rocks, probably, or the very beginning of a no-ski zone at the end of the lake. Perfectly safe. Great lake, but I have had a hook flung at me by a fishermen, and had another angler try to drive his boat under the ski rope while I was towing a skier. He got a wall of water for his efforts and attempted to board our boat with a paddle in retaliation. The sheriff sided with him. Welcome to Arizona.
