Wakeboard pull near Panama City Fl June 11 week?

Hey - just a wild chance here. Anyone near Panama City Florida want to give a poor schlup a pull during the week of June 11? We'll be staying on St George's Island (couldn't talk inlaws into wakeboard school capital Orlando). I'm definitely good for gas money and would be willing to buy drinks after too ...

Shame to go to ski/wakeboard state and not get on a lake somewhere. PS - are gators in every fresh water lake there ...?

My calendar is a little muddy that week, may be having family visiting. I'll PM you. I know there are a couple other members on this site who live in the area. They might even wakeboard (I don't).

When are you arriving exactly? Where are you coming from? Flying or driving?

We are coming Sat 9th staying the whole week. Driving in - if anyone up for a pull I can bring my wakeboard down.

Pensacola is a bit of a haul, but you're more than welcome out here.

I live in PCB and keep my boat at Pirates Cove marina Grand Lagoon. I will probably be out this weekend if you want a pull. Send me a PM.

Josh,

Where do you take you boat! My wife is from P'cola and has been hounding me to take my boat over there. I just don't know of any good spots to go.

Bayou Grande, Bayou Texar, Escambia River, and Blackwater River (from what I have heard) are all good places. You can also ride in the intercoastal, but I haven't been out there. The first 3 spots have great ramp access, but you want to avoid Bayou Texar after a rainfall. There's a website you can check to track the water quality and salinity rates if you're interested.

Bottom line: there's plenty of great opportunities to ride in P'cola. There used to be a large wakeboarding scene here as well, (I think the Bonifay family is from here) but that has died off a lot. UWF has a team, but I've never seen another real wakeboat on the water. Of course, I've only been here a month. It's a shame that there's no real wakeboard shops either. Oh well...more glass for me.

Thanks, I will have to pull the boat over one weekend. Were I live I have the same problem. We have considered opening up a shop but it would be slow for a couple of years.

No kidding. That's where I keep my Formula, on one of the racks outside. If you see me crawling around on her some time, stop by and say hi. Is your Mastercraft kept in the shed there or are you talking about another boat?

Yah, I keep the MC on a rack inside. Give Darvin some cold "natty lite" and he will take good care of you. That bay beats the crap out of the Prostar on weekends though. Up the lagoon has been pretty nice.
