Hi all,

I'm new to this site and am looking for riders south of Chicago. I live in bourbonnais,ILL and I ride alot on the Kankakee river and lake clinton(by champaign).I'm looking for someone to ride with on a regular basis like during the week after work/weekends.I'm a water junkie I'd go out everyday.I have 2000 20' chapparell boat with tower.

P.S. I'M a hydrofoiler Shocked I hope this dos'nt matter.

TOTALL, You should go to Boot Camp '03 in Ottawa, IL. There will be a BUNCH of cool wakeboarders ( a few foilers, too! ) to meet up with and swap numbers. Get more details at http://www.midwestmilitia.net

Totall, what's up? Bourbonnais huh, I live in Brookfield (West of Chicago by like 15 minutes). Wouldn't take me too long to drive down. During the week would be tough for me, but any weekends are great unless I've already got plans to ride. I'd be willing to pick up the gas tab and bring a cooler full of beer. All my gear is up in Wisconsin, since I have noone around here to ride with. Post a message if you still need someone to ride with.

How is the Kankakee river? I've heard it's pretty good.

Totall,

Where do you put in at on the Kankakee? Is that anywhere near the Illinois River (Morris?) Just wondering b/c I'll be moving to Chicago area next year and need a solid place to ride on a regular basis. In fact, my home purchase will be dependant on its proximity to a good riding spot so any tips you could give up would be greatly appreciated.

Howdy,

Wife and I also live in Champaign. We spend most weekends on Clinton (f were going early 6 am & for half day and Shelbyville full day, multiple days / camping overnight.

Traded old boat, New Cal Air Pro-V 23' is in bound with eta of 6 weeks 3 days 5min 32 sec... Were always looking for easy going non- free loading (help'n out on the boat, kick in for gass and food) riders.

We dont spend much if any time in the party coves so as long as you keep that in mind and are looking to board and not expecting to park and drink all day we'd be happy to hear from you.

The new boat is heated so we plan to try to extend the seasons as well as get out early in the spring. We dont have dry suits yet but plan to buy this spring so I'm hoping we can find a few folks with the same mentality so we can at least have a 3rd.

I've been looking for a reason to register on this site and this post did it. Champaign area here also. Try to make it to Clinton or Shelbyville when possible. Just picked up an '03 Mobius about a month and a half ago and have about 13 hours on the clock. My days off rotate, but I get 3 four day weekends in a row starting on the weekend of the 13th. I may have a boat load already that weekend, but if anyone else is going out, let me know and we can hook up on the lake. My wife is a teacher, so when there isn't school in the summer we go during the week on my days off, great for avoiding the weekend traffic. Anyone ever wants to get together, let me know at rbenoit@uiuc.edu

Total,
That's awesome! I have rode the warm side of the lake late in the year and early spring, it is allot warmer I'd guess 15 degrees. I do know they close the side of the lake at the bridge right by the outlet during the coldest parts of the year (Nov to March i think).

Lowdrag This is making my day. Were planning on being out Monday at 6am, putting in at Mascoutin(sp) I'll be with a bunch of inboard Mastercraft guys. Anytime you'd like to head out you can count us in.

You can reach me at kennethl@ncsa.uiuc.edu during the week. I dont check mail on the weekends. I'll shoot you both an e-mail with my cell # and we can hook up.

Man, wish I could have been there Monday. Unfortunately I had to work the weekend and the holiday. On the other hand, Mother U does pay well for working holidays and I've got lots of toys.

Totall,

I've always been curious about the hydrofoils, Do they make a tower rack for them or will they fit in a regular rack? I read an artical that said they were also great in rough water. Does rough water make it harder to land a jump?

Air boom makes a rack for hydrofoils it is spaced wider then a wakeboard rack because hydrofoil decks are thicker then wakebaords.Yes they are great in rough water because the only thing in the water are the foils you are riding above the water.Yeah, landing in rough water can be tricky but, if you can time it right you can use the rollers as jumps and get some good air its pretty cool(I'm still working on the timing thing)Later TOTALL

kennethl,

The Mob has a red hull with off white interior and rad-a-cage. Shouldn't be too many like it on Clinton. Hope things go well and we can maybe meet up next weekend (the 13th). Had to work again today so I couldn't make it.

I'm definitely in for Sunday. Once again I get to work Saturday. This may be my last chance for the Summer since I won't have any weekends off for another month.

This last Sunday turned out to be a total bust. Everyone who was going with me backed out, again. Wife was out of town and didn't get home until 11 in the morning and then told me her parents were on their way over. They showed up 2 hours later and the day was shot.

Just got a new board mysel, Substance 141. It's do or die time now. If I don't get out Sunday, I'll probably have to wait until next year to try it out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed at this point. Hope to see all of you there.
