Not rich enough to have a lake house with private dock, all public docks around here are strictly no wake zones. So yeah, 11 years of deep water starts.
HAHAHA yeah me too! I like the ride on snow way more, but love the lifestyle on the lake. Nothing like chilling on the boat with friends n family with a cooler full of beer, bonfires and BBQ after the sun goes down.
Oh man that sucks. Cottages where my dad is go for $150k up to a $1,000,000+, but even the small shacks have good water access. We're in an enclosed little bay on a river about 1/5 km away from where it joins the lake. It's great because we get at most about 4-6" of choppy water from the wind. Mornings and evenings it can be smooth as glass!
The only trouble with dock starting all the time is I don't get much water start practice. It's no problem on a wakeboard I just pop right up, but I like to slalom waterski as much as wakeboard, and once I'm down I find it really tough to get up on one ski.
And who says you can't have a cooler full of beer, a bonfire/BBQ and a hot tub after a day of snowboarding?!?
I take my slalom skiing seriously... SERIOUSLY!!!
But my brother in law is the master. Guy's in his mid-40s and doesn't slow down.
Even my dad still gets out, but he's fond of two skis these days. He's 70 now so we won't make fun of him...
He does have fun on two planks though...
