From Sea to Shining Sea, it’s summertime in America, and even with new mid-year series and episodes on cable, there’s only so much TV you can watch. Instead of working on your monitor tan, check out the July/August issue of Ride Personal Watercraft Magazine, which we publish for the the American Watercraft Association for some ideas on how to cure your summertime blues.
Ride visits a couple of kick-back spots, that welcome PWC. Lake Norris in East Tennessee is a deep, clean lake formed behind a TVA dam, offering not just house boats, but floating houses for visitors to rent. Just toodle up in your PWC, tie off and step into your kitchen for a snack. Or, roll out of bed and onto your craft for an early morning ride.
For the more adveturous, join a group of somersaulting, high-flying riders who gather annually in Georgia – this year at Lake Allatoona – for three days of trick riding and festivities.
For those living on the ocean, tag along on a sojurn out from Southern California to Catalina Island – just remember that the ocean can change fast!
This issue of Ride also includes a visit with the “Dean of the PWC Nation,” John Donaldson. A longtime rider, industry executive and now member of Kawasaki’s PR agency, John has forgotten more about PWC than most of us will ever learn. And he spends every day fighting the good fight to secure your riding privileges.
Also, each issue of Ride also features great places to take your PWC, new products for the water sports fan and information on PWC racing.
