Soooooo..... I have a place at the Islander. About two years ago a couple fully tattooed ( like head to toe) moved in across the street. You always wonder or think ok... what is this going to be like, right?
I'm 53 and vanilla white :) the saying don't judge a book by the cover has never been so true. This couple may look ghetto or mean or trouble or whatever has been written above but they are NOTHING but. We have become very good friends, both work super hard everyday with real jobs and incomes. II have breakfast often at their house, I'm traveling with them to Key West this year and in two weeks doing the Big Cat Poker run with them. Yes, they have a real nice DCB and ton of other expensive toys that they have earned again through very hard work.

I get the changes in Havasu - I see stuff all the time but please don't rush to judgement..... My friends across the street help make my weekends in Havasu fun!
They are a great couple. Ive spend some time in the pool with them both.
Tattoos dont mean much. It the attitude coupled with tatts that give tattoos a bad name

Thats the trade off for having public access spaces, you get the public. Our lake has very few places to stay or camp, this keeps most of the lake traffic to property owners. Even our party cove is primarily lake residents or boats out of a marina. The down side is it very tough for businesses to do well without the extra crowds. We don't have the quantity of bars and restaurants that would be nice.
Same with us, just about everyone using the lake owns a home on the lake, it changes things drastically.

I really don't think it's the class of people. I see it here in ky also. It's more the character of the people.

That sucks. Sorry to hear. Down the lake in TN I haven't seen it. Yes we are probably less populated. The worst it gets here is Fat Daddy's, but it is still country music. With them it is more of a drunk crowd issue vs a thug issue.

We have the same thing going on here in Destin. I used to enjoy going to the harbor, walk around, enjoy a few of the waterside restaurants, and such. Now it's a mix of a jailhouse tattoo convention, & southside of Atlanta gangland.

Haven't seen it at the lake. I was talking more in general all over. Gas stations where people park in the fuel lane to go in and never get gas. Things like that

I don’t understand being irritated about people not having boats and having a spot in the channel to enjoy the lake for the day. Don’t you launch your boat to enjoy boating for the day? If not then maybe you should just buy a Schiada and a EZ UP 🤷‍♂️

Fixed**

You don’t Think he might have his wives name tattooed on him or where’s he’s from? Does that make him a “ghetto”? He sure dresses like the people you keep describing Or does he get a pass because he has a DCB?
(he does have SD tattooed on his stomach)

Bernie from epic has Las Vegas tattoos on his stomach does that make him ghetto? Or does he get a pass too?

Dude is honestly one of the nicest people you’ll meet on the water or anywhere else.

I wasn’t shitting on him my man. I was just pointing out that members are hypocrites. He fits the description they keep throw around based on how he looks. But he gets a pass because he has a DCB.

When I was camped at needles. I gave 3 family’s a ride in my boat. They didn’t have one and were shocked that I offered a ride. I did it to give them a experience they might never get a chance to do. I have been fortunate to have nice things why can’t I share it? No way I’m shitting on anyone. I know where I came from. I had nothing growing up.my family Didn’t even have a car with ac until I was about 13 living in vegas!

I think you took that post wrong. I was agreeing with you. He and his family are great people who enjoy the river. If someone stereotyped him based on his look they’d miss out on meeting some good people.
Didn’t think you were shitting on anyone. 👍🏻
Now if everyone will excuse me I’ve got to go detail my easy-up for this weekend 😁

I'll tell you.... you talk shit you get hit.... been that way my whole life... even worse with the wannna be bad asses that start shit when they're in a group... some people wanna go to the water to be seen, so they go where everyone else goes to be in the "IN" crowd.. then wine like little bitches about what everyone else is doing... it's like hitting a bee hive with a stick.... you're gonna be get stung.... there's a lot of tatted out people in the world.... for some reason, the statement they are trying to make offends others....thats why lot of business places want the tats covered while at work... this new generation wants to be able to talk shit and not get hit,... they wanna voice their opinion (run their mouth like they are on the internet ).... then when the shit starts they wanna call 911..

policing the channel is the policemen job...they got their hands full... I don't have a problem with people in person because I always have the option to not go, or just leave..

I’m starting to wonder if I know this guy. Apparently everyone does

When we first met, he didn't have a DCB.... so your idea doesn''t fly. Again, not judging based on materials or looks - judging on character. This dude and his family are so nice, happy, generous and real fun to be around.

I can't believe hating on, and being judgemental about tattoos is still a thing...
🤣 right? Some of the best guys I know are covered in tatts. Hard working mother fuckers that live for there friends and family. Most of them are guys I wouldn’t want to do wrong but you give respect and you get respect.

I meet plenty of ghetto disrespectful assholes in life that are white, black, brown, tatts, no tatts, rich, poor it doesn’t matter. Idiots have always been around and unfortunately they aren’t going away anytime soon 🤣🇺🇸

Yep, and that is not going to happen.

They’ll just close it down on the weekends.

The Trees, by Neil Pert,

“There is unrest in the forest
Trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas
The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade
There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream, "Oppression"
And the oaks just shake their heads
So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
They say, "The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light"
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw”

Nobody has the balls to say it. But I will, F It.

Mexicans (not to be confused with Americans of Hispanic descent) these are the purple who live here but glorify a culture that they fled. They have ruined everything they touch. That includes Havasu, Glamis and everything in between. These are the people who intentionally blast polka music just to clear the beach for themselves, they point the music away from themselves so they can still talk and enjoy the beach but others leave. They get off on squirting people with water cannons in the hope that they create a confrontation and get into a fight.


If this post offends you, then you are the person who has ruined Havasu and the like.


You’ve heard the saying? Every group has that friend no one likes, if yours doesn’t that means it you.

Well we play everything from hank Williams lll to Kendrick Lamar. That way we equally offend everyone at one point, don’t want anyone feeling left out..I also am tattooed, but I have American flags and iron crosses so the old guys respect me, but I have my last name in old English on my back, (since I was 17) so the homies think I’m “down” lol. I just had to chime in, 6 pages isn’t enough. Haha social media is what is ruining all these places. People see it online and want to go.

So Labor Day 2020 we were beached at Grandpas with 3 other boats.

Then 2 hammered 30+ foot Magic Vs from Long Beach showed up.

They were cool people, it was a great day. There were a couple idiots in their group, their group kept them in check.

The level of racism on this board is unreal.... this thread exposes lot about this community.....👎 flame on...

Yep. Especially when few will admit they did the same stupid stuff or worse.

To be honest, the true first generation Mexicans do not roll like that from. Its their kids that were born here and turned into scumbags.

The polka music you hear is called Corridos. It is essentially gangster rap for them. It is music glorifying cartels and the drug trade.

Honest hard working folks from Mexico despise that music and its not them getting drunk and blasting it.

Fine line between free speech and political correctness.. I don’t think the problem is the Mexicans anymore than I think it’s white trash people or any other race..

I think it’s just the lower class of America has changed..

It used to be the lower class did everything in their power to move up.. now they revel in it and it’s the new cool.

Poor is the new cool and I Just can’t dig it - Tim

It’s allowed here. This thread proves it!
Weird to me that I got banned for posting about a stupid car. But the amount of racist posts on this threads have not flagged anything from the moderators to even the owner. Weird as fuck…


Mexicans are convenient to all that fancy houses, pools and boats you guys have but for anyone to be proud of there culture or things they like it’s not okay. Cause they can’t afford the best of the best they are trash. It showed when Dave posted the eliminator shop tour or a thread where they had the Mexican flag up. The site went on to talk so much shit about them. But they said we are happy to support the people that make our company run. The jobs are out there for any race. But Mexicans are the only ones who are willing to actually work and not cry. But fuck them for wanting to be proud is seeking a better life for them selves. Oh but look at my sick as boat that Mexicans built. Fuckin hypocrites.
