We are lucky enough to have a quiet, wind-protected shoreline across from our dock. Unfortunately, it is the type of shoreline that attracts wakeboarders who will board up and down for two hours or more, pounding the shoreline with their wake. They include families and wakeboard schools that come all the way from Lake Rosseau to Lake Jo to hold their lessons. We’ve found that the only way to stop them is by approaching them directly and pointing out the damage they are doing (there are several places where it’s very obvious) and the unfairness of subjecting the surrounding neighbours to unceasing engine noise. The thing is, we shouldn’t have to do this.
Wakeboarders need to understand that they have to take their fun out into the lake for the sake of the environment and everyone’s enjoyment of the lake.
