    Waverunner riding in Charleston SC

    Wanted to take a minute and post up. I am a Waverunner owner/operator living on James Island. I am a casual rider for hobby and pleasure. Enjoy chatting with others. As of late I have been running the Edisto river. One of my favorite rides is Morris Island. I like the technical aspect of the skis as much as the riding. Hope to hear from others in the area!

    Re: Waverunner riding in Charleston SC

    I actually thought about riding a bit tonight. Really did not like the looks of the water, I like it smooth. I'm sure I'll go for a ride this weekend. Probably head on down the Morris Island lighthouse

    Here is a video of a fun little ride into the backwoods a couple of weekends ago

    I stick to the lake mainly since I'm riding an all original 1992 550sx. Just had a kid so I'm not out on the water much lately. My 1991 440 (one I let friends ride) toasted a bearing and I'll have to pull the motor and repair... But I'll be out on the water a bunch next month. We should get some people together and go ride the surf or the lake!

    Re: Waverunner riding in Charleston SC

    I am headed to the ocean this weekend. I will put in at the Folly river public ramp and go northwards up Folly river until I reach the inlet. I will then put my 20’ bungee on my ankle. I ride the waves and use the bungee to get back to my ski if I fall off. I have kids so I completely understand that responsibility. My ski is a 2002. Are you in Eutaville? I have a friend there.

    I live in Goose Creek and work in North Charleston. Aren't you worried about the bungee going into your ski?

    Re: Waverunner riding in Charleston SC

    I live on James Island. The bungee stays on the ski. I use it as a safety precaution if I am riding the ocean by myself. I ride in the inlet next to Morris Island lighthouse and the water is very fast in that area. I have a couple of rides in mind, will post a map tonight. One is to the lighthouse and back the other is a Cooper river route. I also have an engine hoist that will help with that engine pull
