I'm moving up to live with my sister in a house we have by UF. I'm going to start at Sante Fe this semester cause Tampa was boring and USF sucked... Just trying to get some info on any good ridable lakes around the area and see if anybody on here rides out there. Should be gettin a nautique/vlx dependin on who gives me a better deal after i finish a few more payments on my donor cycle.

oh nice, yea my sister is at Uf right now as a junior and my dad graduated in 81' so i guess i might work my way into that school but who knows. I wish i could find one around campus or not too far of a drive and eventually buy a house out on the lake or river dependin on which one and just have my bike to cruise to classes whenever i need to. Gotta be around the water somehow tho Twisted Evil My sister is going to introduce me to all those guys so it shouldnt be too hard to find a pull... i hope

I'm in Gainesville, we usually go to Santa Fe or Lake Wier. Santa Fe is about 30 minutes away in Melrose, and Lake Wier is in Bellview about an hour and some odd minutes away. We're heading to Ponce Inlet this Friday by Daytona, weather permitting.

Most of the lakes nearby are out in that area.... it's a 30 minute drive from Gainesville to Santa Fe, and there are several lakes scattered around there although most of them are VERY low due to the lack of rain. Santa Fe is pretty much the go-to lake for everyone here in Gainesville. During the week it's pretty nice depending on the wind, usually it's nice and glassy especially in the morning.

Saturdays and Sundays are pretty busy, so the waters a little bit choppy from everyone else and you have to deal with everyone else buckin' around on the lake. It depends on what you like though.

The water is fresh and very clean, but it's murky because of the cypress trees so it's brown. The lake is attached to a smaller lake called lil' lake santa fe, sometimes it's sweet in there although most of the time I've gone in there it's worse than the big lake on a busy day.

By Santa Fe Community College (where I go to school as well) there aren't any lakes out in that direction. The only other area out there is the Suwanee river, and it's a very popular spot. A lot of people rip it up out there too. However that's a 30-45 minute drive west of Gainesville (Santa Fe is east in Melrose).

yea i just registered for classes today, i live like 10 minutes from sfcc in car. Seems like a few gear changes on the donor cycle tho, its nice and close. I dont mind crappy water on weekends and around noon weekdays... i usually do early morning sets, and late evening sets and just tramp it around lunch time or goto class if i feel like it. I looked at the shape of the lake and it looks like i could find glass on one of the sides if theres bad wind. I dont mind the color of the water, I lived on the Alafia down in Riverview outside of tampa and it was some brown sh*t for sure. If you ever have a pull out here and don't mind havin a third or extra, i'll toss down for gas or anything just to check out the lake(s)

Boy this went in the toilet quickly. At least the guy who started the thread found one possible pull before you jacka##s jumped in. And you go to Miami.....shocker.

No problem, I still haven't gotten a chance to get to the lake so don't think I've been holdin' out on ya! I have a buddy with a lake house out there, and the canal that leads to it from the lake is all muddy now since the level is low, so they've been taking 4-wheelers out there and stuff lately as opposed to the boat.

I'll keep ya posted though, I've just been working on the weekends so.

I should be comin up there this week so i can get my classes straightened out and move most my crap up, gotta wait on some new parts for the bike to come in monday and then i'm up for good... I think i'm gonna google earth around gainesville to see if i can find any smaller lakes or lakes close by

My birthday's coming up on the 25th of September, and we're gonna plan a trip out to the lake more than likely on the weekend of the 30th so I'll keep you posted on that.

Depending on the weather, we're probably going to Ponce Inlet next week either Tuesday or Friday. Although that's not the greatest place to wakeboard since it's choppy... we're still gonna go for it though.

Hey i'm up here in gainesville too.. its honestly been pretty hard to find a pull lately on any lake.. it seems like theres a ton of interest but a lack of good boats or time or something.. I'm definitely good for gas, food, or beer money so next time one of you all head out to the lake and dont mind an extra rider PM me and hopefully we can get in touch if your all good with it.. Thanks a lot

I'm in the same boat. (No pun intended) I've been living in Gainesville since June and although the Vride that the school owns is really nice... it is a pain in the ass to get out there because of the call in system where they apparently only have like one or two lines and hundreds of people calling. Anybody that wouldn't mind another on their boat plus gas money or whatever else you might want on your boat hit me up. I am a very positive rider and greatful for just about anything.
