Renmark, check out riverbend caravan park, real nice cabins there. Plenty of good water around there as well.

Hey jabba I'm 150km upstream from Mannum but I can tell you that the river level is pretty much back to normal and the flow has dropped right off recently.....

Water temp has come up since Oct long weekend so you should be right for some good boarding... :)

Are you getting on one of the Unforgetable houseboats??

weather over last 24hours suggests there might be a few trees and debri in the river which will be down mannum way by the weekend

other than that - as per shcills - it's all good!

Need a ride in South Oz, have licence!

Postby DubMenace » Wed Nov 16, 2011 7:53 pm

I've put this into the Find a Ride section also..am obviously desperate! I'm looking for a ride I live in Henley Beach, have license and am a responsible driver.
happy to go pretty much anywhere on the Murray

I work some pretty random hours..a lot of weekday time off etc

Please anyone with a boat needing another rider contact me!

getting out this weekend after having a few jobs done on boat (new steering cable should make it easier? new log gland should make it dryer? ballast pumps should make it easier to empty? and a few other $'s chucked in)

still got quite a few hours at my desk then a work function before my view changes though (water level won't be that high either).

Bump....... had to get this thread back on top..... not much has been posted up on here lately.......

So who's coming to Wake Up vs YHK at Waikerie this Saturday ???

Should be a great day....sounds like there's going to be a great range of boats there on the day to try and get a ride behind.

I'll be there most of the day so lets hope the weather's kind , suns out and the water is flat..... :D

we have had some pretty windy weather so far this year (lots of south winds which really whip it up against the current) but still getting out a bit.

here's hoping for some quiet winds over the next couple of weeks.

thanks for saying goodaye yesterday - sorry i could hardly speak, i am very unfit at the moment so paddling that surf ski into the current was nearly killing me - still good excercise. catch you up there another time.

saturday was more south wind and , but got out for a short ride in awesome water sunday and nearly finished my new shed so it was a good weekend.

river levels heading back up and really strong current is a little concerning.

(new harley 139 was awesome)

We have been told we are about 3 weeks away from seeing alot of water arrive. Does anyone from morgan way know what the levels are like above lock 1? I agree Feral, the current is getting pretty quick. How did you go with the ballast install on the x factor?

No worries 'll let you know when we are heading up again. Hopefully next time we'll take our boat.

We pulled some small to medium logs out on Saturday arvo, it was flowing quickly, my crew were struggling in the kayaks upstream too! we were pretty lucky all weekend with the conditions. I even got out on the swerve stick a few times on the glassy water.

a mate went up to morgan on his barge over the weekend, i think there is plenty of water up there (was all still quite full from last year).

yeh, the report says more water mid april.

ballast instal is good, two self primining pumps straight down into the tanks (will get round to posting a photo one day). It pumps about 90% of the water out at a guess (need to measure how much comes out on the trailer but it's not much.

Guys and girls if you havnt got anything on this weekend ,the Adelaide speedboat club where Wake SA had 2 events last year is running a 2 day Unlimited Powerboat racing spectacular.There will be many Supercharged Blown Alchaol Displacement boats. These boats have up to 2200 horsepower and are capable of speeds up to 145 to 150 mph, 230 kmh to 240kmh.There are other support catagories from Nascar powered 800hp 6litre boats, Formula 1 Outboards all the way down to the kids in the junior boats. This will be an awsome weekend for powerboat racing in Adelaide.
Hope to see you all there.

im from morgan, water has gone up a good metre i would say. current is quickening again and the usual junk can be found in the water (sleepers, logs, sticks, branches etc.)

Perfect pass owners.
Guys not sure if my display is on the blink or the master module.Its intermittant.Just wondering if at all possible that i could bring my display with me to your boat and plug it in your master module to eliminate or prove that my display isnt working properly. Perfect pass are more than happy to send me a new display for just under $200 but thats not going to prove anything apart from lightening my bank balance
My version is 6.5ng Waheboard pro.It will work on any of them apart from the GPS stargazer
Thanks

Water levels are definitely on the way up now, up a good 2 feet in the last week and a half, winds from the south arent helping either. Neighbour hit a log in their response last weekend, was to be their last session before tucking the boat away for the cold months. luckily just prop damage. Fair bit of floating down now as well. Havent seen many boats out but the ones that are need to keep an eye out.

we've been out a few times, apart from being very cold the water conditions have been hit and miss as well with alot of southerly winds which around our way turn the river to shite. I for one cant wait for the hot days and balmy nights to arrive so we can all enjoy our time up the river that bit more. Hopefully we can sort our new boat shortly and its a cracker summer this year! :D

Hey guys
Myself and a group of people are venturing over from WA in feb 2013 and spending 10 days on a house boat. We are bringing a wake boat with us and looking forward to some awesome riding time. A few of us are keen to get someone out on the boat for a day for a bit of coaching. I see there is a few guys around that do it and was just wondering if any one has any suggestions? We are beginner/intermediate riders and are keen to take our riding to the next level. Any suggestions would be great.

Cheers

Theres a few guys who do coaching around murray bridge way, i think Adam Bruce still does a bit, iam pretty sure his company is called southside wakeboarding. A guy called TJ does it as well and i reckon hes tied up with Prowake. Google search mate, iam sure theres more but the ones i have listed are good coaches from what i have heard. Best of luck, you should get some cracking water/weather around then!

Had the boat out at Murray Bridge last Saturday but quite windy, so no boarding. Good to take the boat for a run though.
The next chance to get the boat out is the long weekend. Cant wait. I'm sure there will be a few more boats hitting the water that weekend also.

Hey All - A lot of us or our families have been touched by the Women's and Children's Hospital - you don't think about it till you need it.

My wife is participating in a Challenge supporting the Women's and Children's Hospital here in SA. See http://www.everydayhero.com.au/rebecca_siebert

Our twins were born ten weeks early 6 years ago - we learnt about WCH pretty quick!

Thanks to the WCH, the nurses and the doctors they are now healthy six year olds powering through school (they can both double ski and were both trying their wakeboard last year).

We have both wanted to give back to the hospital and this has been an awesome opportunity. See https://www.facebook.com/BecsC2C?ref=hl to see what she's up to.

Rebecca is running a quiz night On 27th October - it would be awesome to see a local table (I am doing the questions so if you like jetskis or dirtbikes you might be lucky) see https://www.facebook.com/events/485494478146166/ - great wine and great prizes.

Thanks to Yamaha Australia and Yamaha Pitmans I have a PW50 being auctioned on the night - there are heaps of other prizes including signed crows ball, Rapid Surf and Ski Vouchers, top shelf wines and more - all proceeds to the local Womens and Childrens Hospital.

Businesses have been very generous and we have awesome wines and lots of auction items and prizes up for grabs.

If you like good wine see https://www.facebook.com/events/308127562617053/ every player wins - top prize $599rrp - average prize value around $28!

If you want to bid on the PW50 or any other great auction items see https://www.facebook.com/events/260584664059831/

Bids, tickets or bottles in the wall of wine email becsc2c@chariot.net.au or call me 0417 802 654

I was up at young husband over the weekend. Sunday made for a nice and bumpy boat ride to the pub, but monday was a great day. The only problem was that we had to pack up and leave! Not too many boats around the young husband area but a few more around murray bridge on the drive home. It's looking like its going to be a cracker season!

Was a perfect day today, glass conditions, warm weather, cold beers, cant ask for much more. Any other wake.com.au users heading up the murray much? Seems as though not too many people are still riding compared to a few years back...
