Re: Who's Still Skiing?

To bad,our last tournament is over and the boat is up and redo for the winter rest.It was 44*F in the water and 41*F in the air,not too bad.
Made my tournament PB so i´m pleased,but one guy made it to first bouy in the first round(we had two rounds and final),after that he didnt get close to the water again that day.Ended the day with sauna and bubbelpool,great!!
If theres no ice,we were planing on a tournament on new yeareve,we will see....

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Skied yesterday here in So. Cal.  Water temp was 60 and the air was 75 +. Skied in shorts and a top. I was surprised how comfortable it was as I haven't been in the water for about 3 weeks. I didn't set the world on fire, but then again I didn't expect too!!!  cool  Fun Stuff!!!

I skied with Trent Finlanson last week at Utopia in San Marcos... Same conditions it was just epic.  Is there any way to ski at San Marcos Ski Ranch without being an owner? I'll be going back to Texas again this winter would like to get some more skiing in.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

We skied Utah lake yesterday after we broke the ice out of the course with the boat. It took about 10 passes with the boat to get all the ice out of the way. So the air was 48 deg and the water! well it was frozen when we got there.
Skiing was great i ran two great -28 never tried a -32 with it being so cold. So bumbed we have no snow yet so we will stay on the water as long as possible.
? my ski performes better on the colder deeper water i am wondering what i need to adjust for the warmer shallower water? Any input would be great.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Start off trying less wing. Then think about fin adjustment if your ski is still sinking in the water.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Skied today. No sun, 69-70 degree air, water temp 49!!, shorts and a 2mm wetsuit top. My freaking legs were feeling it.  Time to switch to a full wetsuit or dry suit. Regardless, I learned something today about my skiing so it was well worth it.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Ski'd this past Saturday Nov 28th!  65 air temps, 61 water temps...  Busted out the full wetsuit and after the initial "oh gosh its kind of cold!" it really wasn't that bad!  Pretty good conditions for November!  Wind laid down long enough to get one set in a piece! 

Its so amazing to me that being off the water 3/4 weeks and you lose all your skiing stamina!  And I even bike 3 times a week and run 3/4 times, major miles too.  Slalom skiing is just such a different animal!

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Agreed!  I skied a quick set in Arizona last week after not skiing for over a month and my opening pass was absolutely horrible.  Out of an 8 pass set, I only had one pass that I actually felt good about.  Didn't come close to my PB.  I'm pretty active and consider myself to be in good shape, but three days later and my arms and back are still sore!  If anyone has some good exercises to do in the offseason to keep those waterski specific muscles ready, please share.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Still Skiing in Scotland at the Scottish Water Ski Centre and still in a wetsuit. Water temperature on Sunday was 2.5 degrees C (36.5 F) and air temperature was -2.5 C (27.5 F) Combined total of 64 F. Had to use the boat to break up the ice from the course before we could ski.

Its cold but we aren't giving in to the winter. The club still has at least 20 members still skiing and will continue right through the winter. Although some now are in drysuits this week.

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Still skiing, water is in the 50's, and the air temp ranges from 50-65.  My frequency has dropped significantly however.  I will continue to ski until about Nov. 1st as long as there are days with air temp 50+

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Weather has been spectacular this week. Water is mid 60's and clear blue sky. Unfortunately nobody around so can't take advantage. Did get out a few days ago to tweaking the helmet cam...

Re: Who's Still Skiing?

Cool stuff! (of course rockin' Rush might reveal our age!) Man, that water was sweeeeeeeeeeeeet! The helmet cam is a great indication of where the head ( not necessarily vision) is aimed. Both sq. and plumb.

While watching, I kept wanting to stay looking at the pylon deper into the pull/edge change! -I wonder what my helmet cam would show?!?! -maybe I would be saying the same thing!?!? roll
