October Skiing

Who has pictures of skiing this October? Post here! I have been off the water for almost a month now. I know that I've been absent for a while but I'm happy to report that I'm alive well and ready to bring you some of the best water skiing features the web has to offer.

Not a skiing shot, but a picture of my wife and little girls about to jump into the water taken last Friday, October 1st.  The water was 68 degrees - not that bad.

wade,

Boomer and I have been skiing minimum once a week. This week is looking really good with highs in the 60s. Come ski with us behind your favorite boat. Our water is around 60  and the trees are turning.

Re: October Skiing

We will probably ski tomorrow or this weekend.  I'll try to get some pictures for you.  The water is in the 60* range.  I am thinking of pulling the boat next weekend.  I have some free time and my kids sports fill the weekends after so I may not have as much time.

Re: October Skiing

I skied today, but due to the long layoff between skiing last, the cooler water and the neoprene (insert other excuses here) I didn't ski as well as I would have liked.  I did have fun!!!!!!!!

Re: October Skiing

Went at it this morning.  Water 58, air 34.  Water was real edgy.  In my spring suit I thought ice was going to form on my shins.  This is my brother Seth, he braved it in a rash guard, true story.  Had baby O on board so vid was limited.  Driving I had to break out the hat and synthetic down, gloves would have been a good option.  Hoping to get some warmer air in what looks to be our last week with the course in and water high.

Re: October Skiing

We're still skiing. Water 73-74 and air temps 80-85.  Our last tournament of the year in the area was saturday so yesterday I made the transition from the Strada bindings to true hard shells. Geez, that was an experience! smile
