The coldest water temp at saguaro I've seen is 63. Some spots I get 67.



We rode dirty this weekend. Just Mr BombWake and I. Shredded the Gnar for a good six hours! Gas bill was horrendous.



For the record, my boat only holds 35 gallons

Thanks for the report.
That gas bill looks painful!!! My x30 has a 60 gallon tank and is about 1/4 full

Curt, the G holds 65 gallons of premium ($$$$$$$$). Pulled it on Sat with 0.7 gallons left in it. Not bad for pulling 50 riders on the day, full ballast and a dozen people in the boat (coming out of the hole probably 75+ times). Thanks for all your help, I am def going to cruise out for the pleasant surf comp.

That's really good in my book! Sadly i took next to no photos, as i left my phone on my boat with Mr BombWake and Co while being on yours practically all day. And that's probably a good thing. As I got a bidet feeling a handful of times judging in the back. And drenched when i decided it was safer in the front



And yet the best photos i have are of your other nautique.






Good thing We had several people helping at the event

Last week the temps weren't too good... Remember how hazy it was?

Yeah thats looking directly into the sun.
Cold enough that we had to bust out the foot warmer!


And so windy that we had to ride at "the place beyond the pines" (it's a movie)


Aka past the no wake zone where RAF practically lives at the lake. Pretty crazy going fast back there, pretty darn narrow...

Wimps... you need a heater in that thing... ;-) You think it was cold here you should have been in California, it was so cold at Canyon Lake CA that I refused to do a practice run on a G21. Thats right I turned down a chance to ride the G21 before my competition run. With no sun I didn't want to sit in the shade in the wind wet waiting to dry off before my second run...

Ha ha, that area past the buoys is always nice! One issue though is that it seems to have the majority of the drift wood/floating debris...

Pictures like that tell me that I'm making the right move!! ...15 degrees, 30 mph winds, and snow blowing sideways here today!

Another dumb question for you guys:

How are the ramps at the popular lakes around the PHX area? Reason I ask is I'm going to buy an inexpensive work truck and am getting mixed information on the need for 4WD.

Would a full size 2wd pick up work for most the ramps most of the time. I won't be towing to the lake with it that much, but just wanted to get some opinions. Thanks.

Saguaro lake Dock 1 you'll be fine. Dock 2 you'll need a couple buddies to stand on the back bumper. Same thing for the ramp at Canyon lake.

What the Coon says... depends a lot on the boat though....

With my current 210 and anything heavier its a bit of a struggle at times at Canyon and Saguaro ramp 2 with my 2004 2WD Silverado 1500 where it was fine with a lighter boat. If you plan on going to Apache, Roosevelt, or Pleasant (at least the 10 lane and the Pleasant harbor marina) 4WD sounds like a damn good idea. I have only used the main ramp at Bartlett and I would prefer a 4WD.

A with a lighter boat, better tires, and perhaps a heavier short wheel base tow vehicle and you would be fine with a 2WD. I use a 4WD 3/4 ton Suburban with a mild lift and 33's to tow with most of the time and it works great and often I don't need 4WD but it comes in very handy.

Hey Curtis,
How have you been!!
You folks look like you are having way too much fun out there!!
I'm jealous, I have to run down to Florida just to find some above freezing temps
Good to see you are out there having a blast.
Craig

I've been good Craig, how's the boat doing? You added a diy surf gate on it right?
Old    NAW (ripr)      Join Date: Mar 2002       11-21-2014, 11:59 AM Reply   
Nice!!! Thanks for the info guys...ended up picking up a 4wd Yukon from a private owner. Hoping to hit the lake weekend after thanksgiving!
Old     (moto96s)      Join Date: Nov 2011       11-23-2014, 7:39 AM Reply   
Yeah,
I have a home made swim platform based gate for each side now and they actually work pretty great.
The Bu is all put away for the winter as of last weekend and we are just waiting on the snow
I have actually been doing more surfing than waking this past summer as I have kind of hit a wall on wakeboarding due to my age and physical conditioning.
The surfing has turned out to be a fantastic physical therapy for my knees and back as well as the rest of my body, and it is a blast!
Good to talk to you.
Craig
