    Some shots of a friend of mine from today. He's going to be out for 6 weeks due to surgery on his elbow.

            Yesterday it started out a bit foggy but ended quite nicely.

                Water was 57. Air was around mid to upper sixties but the sun made its appearance so we were in tee shirts by mid afternoon. I was comfortable in my 4/3 wetsuit.

                    I'm at the point where the wake only needs a bit of fine tuning. A bit more lead bags for the rear and I think that will be it.

                    The 4/3 wetsuits with the new materials are ultra flexible and you feel dang near dry in them. I ended up with an O'Neill Heat and I'm very happy with it. My 3/2 Bare has rubber dams at the wrists and ankles where the O'Neill does. But since the sleeves and legs are narrow enough, they are not needed.

                      Oh, I noticed that the wake has a bit more lip just behind where I hit it - looking forward to letting the rope out a bit more. I think I'm going to add 2.5' sections one at a time.

                        BTW, a good review of that wetsuit at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yAEJHGQm-A.

                          Some shots from yesterday actually. Sun never broke through but riding was good. Go to try out the Psycho 1.5mm gloves - love them as almost dry hands and not too much additional effort to hold handle.

                          Been meaning to get a picture like this but I need to get more height. I'd like to get something like that I'm up on top of the bridge deck but I just do go that high.

                              Man, I surf in a 4/3 on Vancouver Island in February and there's snow on the ground half the time... I couldn't imagine being towed behind a boat on a wakeboard in my O'neill Mutant. Geeze, Canada sucks... It was 40* here today and I had a tank top on, get me out of here!
