Well it was a fantastic season for us to say the least. After 2012 season of recovering from my broken ankle , I made up for it for sure. Actually did wakeboard again, just jump from heelside to toe side and clear the wake . Didn't try it until I went on vacation though. Did lots of wake skating and surfing before that. Rode my airchair for a few times and put it away, might sell it don't ride it enough.

Nice pictures. What lake is that? I may be retiring soon and I like to find neat places to go. It reminds me a lot of Dworshak in Idaho which is one of my favorites. You had some smoke in the air which is the norm it seems out west around the middle of July into August. Makes great sunset pictures.1998 Mobius

ya, where was it?
I spent a year in Kalispell opening a store there. very nice area and flathead lake was amazing, but too cold and california drove the prices sky high..
spent time in hamilton south of missoula. 2 nice lakes there and look like they would be awesome to surf but cold as well even in late summer
zabood.. friend in boise idaho spent a lot of time on dworshack and loved it. they have surfed all over northern idaho as she's a teacher so they have all summer to play. have to hook ya up with her. she loves to chat surfing and talk lakes up north. I think they are talking retirement in several years and would suspect they will be up there every summer. they took a drive into canada one day just to say they've surfed another country'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

I guess I should have labeled the pics of where they were taken. Yes Flathead lake, been going there since 5th grade with my folks. BOL lives near there , we hit another lake also , smaller and a little warmer. No boat traffic to speak of except for the weekends. I guess the water temp was tolerable in June this year, skiing without a wetsuit. We had absolutely perfect weather, was smokey from forest fires in Idaho. The real estate prices aren't too bad than elsewhere, , lakefront is really expensive. If you look long enough you can find places close to the lakes reasonable.
Yes the season is shorter than other places , probably by a couple of months.05 Mobius lsv , ballast system , stereo, etc..

you see the guy with the mega-mansion on the private island near Lakeside? he was building that place when I lived there in '95. pissed all the residents off taking off and landing his seaplane at all hours of the day/night.
rumor there's a big estate at the other end of the lake(south) that was built by the guy that invented the Today Sponge. died and gave it to the university in Missoula. faculty got in trouble using it as a party getaway. all rumors but must be some truth to it..
ever hang out in Kalispell? wonder if Mooses Saloon still open in downtown. all us mgrs there used to do "work" there every friday at 4pm'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

Just how much money does someone have if they have a $60M Lake house in Montana?
And did he get a Mondo or LSV?Sent by the random thoughts from the voices in my head...
