Been inactive for a long while but with arctic winter here I finally have free time to post.
Wanted to see who all is planning on being at Brostock this year? Its early but our reservations are made! We have never been and from what we have heard and seen it looks like a blast.

June 4th-7th Lake of the Ozarks
Tan-tar-a resort is the usual sponsor hotel but it hasnt been announced yet. Thats where we are staying.
Event is normally held infront of captain rons which is a 7mile boat ride from tan-tar-a.
The event is located in the Osage Beach area of lake of the ozarks so the very east part of ozarks.
It would be awesome to get a line of Moombas set up during the events!
We already have a two truck convoy coming from Indiana but we are trying to recruit more people its going to be a blast from what i've heard.

We are planing on going we are planing on staying at the red oaks we docked a boat there last year and drove from the dam end of the lake (stayed with friends) $10 a night for a covered slip. Last year we were in a bu this year we will have a supra down there

Dang $10 a night! How far of a boat ride is that to captain rons? I booked a slip at tan-tar-a for atleast double that. Also i looked up red oak and the rooms are cheaper too. I may have to change my itenerary up seems i can save a fee hundred bucks easily.

Edit: Just saw its right across from captain rons. Probably will try to get a spot there if avaliable tomorrow. That would be worth its weight in gold to not have to make that 7 mile lake journey after being at the bar.

Is it really that bad to wish for a drought? Ok - just up here in the NW.

I went two years ago. Best piece of advice is stay in sunrise beach close to captain Ron's. Loto gets real rough and tan Tara is real far away. 7 miles can be a brutal ride.

Damn my round trip is just over 1200 miles, im putting about 600 aside for truck gas at this point. But im hoping it will be worth it.

Alright thanks, I have decided to cancel tantara as soon as i can get reservations closer. Planning on red oaks if I can get a spot. The 7 miles seemed like a solid chance to surf some on the way there and back but conditions probably wont allow for that. How did brostock treat you in 2012?

I was down there and met Andy, Rick and their crews two years ago. We had a lot of fun but we could not find anywhere decient to ride. We drove 800 miles one way and got there on Friday morning and stayed till Monday. LOTO is a really good time and our favorite night was Sunday when all the traffic left. I don't want to be a debbie downer but LOTO water/ride quality sucked. The riders were all struggling because of conditions so badly that they split the winnings. All and all it was a blast but we would easily drive further for better conditions.

This thread has lots of info.

Well fun is what we are looking for so hopefully the water wont be too awful for a few rides. I watched some vids of the 2012 conditions and they did look awful. Last year didnt appear as bad but mother nature is unpredictable. Unfortunately we have to head out sunday morning so we probably wont get many good conditions for riding. My lake here in indiana is extremely shallow, we can make a 1/8mile run in 20ft+ foot water but then have to turn around because it gets 8-15ft deep. So deep water will be great for the XLV loaded down with our new ballast. All 6 of us are between 21 and 23 years old so we just want to see some sick boarding and meet alot of new people and have some fun.

I been to bro stock at the lake of the Ozarks the last two years. 1st year we were in a 24' supra last year we were in a 21 Malibu. the 24' supra we covered a good portion of the lake on Thursday and Friday but Saturday and sunday was busy and we had to watch what we were doing.
Last year we went north of captain ron's and was able to wakeboard and surf on Friday and Saturday. going north a 21' boat was fine. Most of the big boats head south out of captain ron's.


I would say it is a great party place. The bars and night life is good. And captain ron's was a blast Friday night and Saturday night.

I would love to see it go back to Bull shoals (It was good time partying and got to wakeboard and surf all we wanted to.)
At the Lake of the Ozarks you are going to have to look/hunt for good water to wakeboard/surf in.

Didn't make it in 2012. I actually bought my axis the weekend before and couldn't convince my wife to go. I would go back again, it was a weekend of drunkenness and fun without kids. Watch out for anchor ropes, or the lack of people using anchors in flotillas. Definatly take a lot of photos as there is plenty of scenery there. I would love for it to go back to bull shoals, as I have never been there. However for foreigners loto is more welcoming with rental houses. Check vrbo for rentals they are very affordable. Rick and I stayed at a house with two wings and two docks for next to nothing.

Well I definitely dont believe my XLV handles rough water well compared to some malibus ive been in but we will see what we can do to get some surf sessions in. But im glad to hear the night life and parties are good, thats what vacation is all about, we can surf all we want back in indiana. We just booked our a-frame cabin at Red Oaks so im sure we will see you there! Now time to start saving some cash.

Im actually looking at a Axis T22 at the moment but im not fond of having to redo the entire stereo, its stock system isnt quite enough for me. Drunkness and fun is exactly how im expecting it. You should convince the wife to come back this year. Im sure I will get my prop wrapped up somehow, it never fails, do you suggest bringing an extra prop? Many underwater hazards?

I am actually going to be in the outer banks that weekend or I would be MAKING her go. I had no trouble with underwater hazards, but it is always smart to have an extra. I would advise bringing a sharp knife to cut away anchor rope that might wrap around your prop shaft, and a scuba tank. Yeah I was that guy.

Well have fun out there! Maybe take the axis and test out the rough water ability hah. And we will definitely pack some big knives and hell maybe a scuba tank haha, better safe than sorry.

How is the event for watching from a boat? Do u have to get in a huge tie up or can u just post up on ur own and still see anything? I don't know that I really wanna tie up in that mess as we will be coming and going.

You guys be careful, I saw the forecast was a bit rough. Remember there is a lightning rod attached to your boat!
