     Wake Responsibly: You Are         Responsible for Your Own Wake

  While wakeboarding on the water this summer, the Wildlife Commission urges you to follow the guidelines below to "wake responsibly:" 

  • Stay at least 200 feet away from the shoreline, docks or other structures
  • Keep music at reasonable levels. Sound travels well over water. If it is loud enough to hear at 80 feet back, it is likely loud enough for homeowners and other to hear as well.
  • Minimize repetitive passes on any one portion of the shoreline. Once you've run the same line for awhile, move on to another area.
