Hey there Lolly, welcome to the Forum.

Good to hear you have gotten into wakeboarding. We leave the knee boards at home now that we all can board - definitely more fun. I think there are quite a few SA people on here. Where about's do you ride?

We try and get to the river pretty often around Murray Bridge for day trips and Renmark at XMAS/Easter time.

Hey lolly. Its good to see the girls getting involved in the sport as well. You love it. Just be careful of you toeside edge (of the board). This edge is often the cause of many falls for beginners.

Anyway, we have a shack in Morgan which is about 30 minutes closer to adelaide than waikerie. Its a great spot up there and we try and go every wk end. Its an awesome sport.

yeah i'm from the adelaide hills, we normally ride anywhere from murray bridge, mannum, walkers flat depending on the weather.

normally head up near waikerie over easter, nice wide part of the river and glassy most days to.

Hey lolly,

good to see a few more chicks gettin out on the water. I live in brooklyn park and we head down to a mates shack at blanchetown, murray bridge n mannum and yeah i agree theres no place like the murray. Am a bit older than you guys(23) and have been wakeboarding for about 4 years. Be good to catch up with all you guys for a ride sometime. Good to hear from so many sa people.

Cheers all

Hey Guys I am from SA as well, I normally board near Morgan. A mate has a shack up that way. For a day trip we normally go to walkers flat or manum.

Have only been wakeboarding for 1 1/2 years but I love it & cant get enough. I wanted to keep going during winter but my mates say it is to cold & wont go :(
