  • Fall skiing...where are the diehards!?

    Went out tonight...not exactly roughing it. 70* air and 70* water, but I wanted to bust out my new O'Neill Hammer wetsuit

    Never used one before, and I really liked it! Couldn't even feel the water. I'm sure that will change in another 15* or so, but I will be skiing into November at this rate.

    Also got some video with my new iPhone 5S slow-mo camera; coming soon...

        Was out last night myself. Oneil hammer heater top and all was good. When it gets to cold for that, I'm done. Hoping to make into November but we will see.

          70/70 is early June skiing for us. Considering taking one last run this Saturday before putting the ski up for the year. It will most likely be more like 50/60. 60 being the water. will most likely go with a wetsuit jacket and tough it out. Not quite dry suit weather yet.

            Went out last week, it was about 74 (air)/65 (water) here in Iowa. I have 3/4 wetsuit that made it very comfortable to be in the water. I would go out again, but I can't get anyone to go when they have to wear a sweatshirt in the boat. I am hoping for one my fluke 70 or 80 degree day to go out. I need to get some die hard skier friends.

              Yep, I was out on higgins a couple weeks ago. It was pretty cold but I don't own any suit. I'm asking for one for Christmas this year so we can start the season earlier next year.

                  Go for the O'Neil bag suit. I use mine in the spring and by the time you don't need it anymore the air and water are getting warm quickly enough to tough out a run without going to a wet suit. At least that's what I do.

                    I'm going old school this weekend. Regular swim trunks and a mouthguard so I don't chip a tooth due to convulsive teeth chatter. Forecast predicts frosty mornings for this weekend with miles and miles of glassy water.
                    Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.

                              That WAS funny...back the 190 down the ramp and onto the thin ice and then crunch! Trailer now in water!

                              That was a good 15 yards or so of ice...
