I'm back and here's how it went down.

Considering there were 5-7 ppl on the boat our conversation went fairly smoothly.
After the rider went down and the boat went into idel, retriving the skier - nearly in front of me
I asked him why he was in so close to our docks.

He replied, "It's the only smooth place on the lake".
I said, "but dude you got the whole side of the lake to run on"!

He said, "everywhere else was to rough and that the rider would be hurt".
I said. "that's the kinda sport you can do in any kind of water condition, if your that good".

I call BS on their part. You are right, they can board almost anywhere.

Do you have a 'no wake' law on your lake?? On our it's within 100', kinda hard to enforce ourselves but take down their #'s if you have to.

Only wakeboarders leave wakes? What about all the tubers, jet ski's, footer's who power turn, etc???? Oh, and wakeboarding is not a sport to do in rough waters.

I agree w/ ya roddydog re: the BS part
Great point you raise regard'n the no wake law ... there's never been an issue until now.

I'll look into that first thing Monday morn'n w/ the proper authorities.

Most of the other wkbrdrs that use the lake who live here on it, board out near the middle so the rollers have sufficent time to decipate by the time they hit the shoreline.

These guy's trailered their Supra to the lake, (outsiders) I know they don't live here.
