    Wake Zones

    I have people talk their butts off how there are NO WAKE ZONES in every creek I ski in. In South Carolina, unless it is specifically marked with a DNR sign, is a creek with persoanl dock necessarily a NO WAKE ZONE.. what are the regs???

    Anything 100 feet from shore is considered no wake area here in Iowa.

    Contact local DNR +1

    SC is 50 feet unless it has been designated by DNR. No need for a buoy. Most are common sense. Unless a "creek" is 100+ feet wide it is probably "NO WAKE". 50 feet from dock and 50 ft from opposite shore.

    I agree, you need a certain amount on either side of you to ride at wake speed. but I have gone WOT in a deep, narrow river before- no docks or other people.


    Once got stopped on the local river which is MAYBE 200 feet wide for riding to close to tubers that were heading down the river. they said i had to be 100 feet from them and the shore as well. I asked how that was possible... so the tubers became a moving no wake zone pretty much. ( at this time about 10 other boats/pwc cruised right by the same group of tubers )
