    Video: Exploring St Johns’ Creeks and Rivers With Florida Ski Riders



    Personally, I love jet skiing in areas I’ve never been (and areas I probably shouldn’t be in)! Well, this time around a few friends of mine from the Florida Ski Riders decided to launch from Monroe Harbor Marina in Sanford, FL. We used this ramp because it’s a nice hour ride to the restaurant. Danny, Juan, Diane, Louie, Allison and I met up around 9am that Saturday morning. The weather was in the 70’s and felt amazing! We headed south, down the Saint John’s River towards Lake Harney.

    That is a beautiful area, the REAL Florida.
    I probably wouldn't be zipping along there at those speeds with all those logs in the water, but when the water comes back up I would definitely like to try that with you guys. We usually put in a Ed Stone Park and head North to Lake George / Silver Glen.

    And don't forget small sticks, branches, and possible rock/shell or two....
    I'm with ya! I'd sure like to bucket-list this adventure too, so I have two schools of thought here.... do it on a crap junk ski one doesn't really care to get a little ding'ed-up.... or fabricate an intake grate with dozens of extra finely-spaced fins (like those river jet-boat kits use) so that even small debris just combs right across.

    I was at Camp Holly today and water seemed to be up, but I didn't ride.

    Give it a month or two and it should be good.

    Some of my prior vids on the St. Johns

    By pure coincidence, I met Junior of the Florida Ski Riders today. He has a local window tinting business and tinted my truck windows. Saw his ski and we started talking "shop". Looking forward to seeing him and his crew out on the waves.
