    Per what @mobius wrote above, this is what WSIA publishes and on their flyers. All reasonable items.

    anyone catch this in vermont. will ban wakesurfing on 43 of the 73 inland lakes. says it's still being challenged but wonder if that's nothing more than a delay to the inevitable.

    200ft is fair, 500ft is absurd

    Saw this post pop up on Google news. I have to say, by looking at the photo of the people in the room, it doesn't look like a wake surfing crowd.....https://fox11online.com/news/local/w...-ban-ordinance

    Looks like the Michigan groups are still pushing hard for this. If you watch the video, the last 45 seconds sum up a lot of things. Please encourage everyone to be respectful. Perception of the bystander becomes reality.

    Looks like Wisconsin, but similar groups fighting in Michigan.

    All for being responsible and respectful.

    I find fisherman to be the most touchy and certainly understand their boats don't take wake very well. Fisherman seem to be a powerful group as they are behind most of the Michigan lake restrictions such as some lakes having time restrictions for high speed boating.

    Point is, keep the fishermen happy and they will leave you alone.

    lots of truth to this.... it's the 1% that will ruin it for everyone and in this me-me-me era, no one has any respect for other people anymore.

    In fairness, if 1% of fishermen are dbags, that is a lot of dbags.

    A few weeks ago, I was backing boat down ramp and fisherman walks behind my boat then turns around and walks back while warning my wife and son to stay away from his planar boards.

    I got out and nicely said "please don't walk behind my boat as I am backing down ramp" "if you have a warning to share next time, you say it to me"

    Dude had nothing else to say.

    have met a lot of fisherman dbags that own the lake and met just as many dbags in boats with towers. here on mead, I bet there's about a 50/50 split between boats with towers and power poles...


    imo the difference is there's a lot less fisherman launching/retrieving and being dbags(in my experience). look at the number of tower boats that spend a day on the water with alcohol and come back to take out and are loud, disruptive with music and the such. I have seen more 200k wakeboats loaded up with 20somethings launching and think they own the ramp than a bass boat with 2 guys in jeans going out. all adds to the bad rap.
