    @ToddA that sounds terrible. My air was 70ish and water was 60ish. That is what we call winter down here.

    @Horton yeah, I only could stand 3 "passes" free skiing. Feet just were too cold.
    @scotchipman just going off the dock thermometer...reads 33*. Given the fact that the last 4-5 weeks our night time temps have been 24-27*F, and day time temps have been low to mid 40's, and the lake was frozen over for about two weeks up until 6 days ago, hard to argue that 33* reading.

    @bishop8950 Come south. The new ProStar is unreal and the water is glass.

    @Horton that best ski ride wasn't on a particular ski produced in SC was it?

    What a difference 2 weeks of warmer weather make! Warm hands, warm feet, skied two sets this morning. Think it's time to put the dry suit away - hooray for spring skiing!

    First ski today. Air 42. I'm guessing the water was upper 30s. Still ice floating in it.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Just got my boat out for the first time today but didn’t have a driver to pull me. Boat ran great. Water was 57 and air is 60.

    I skied the last four days in Tampa on a borrowed D3 Arc. I got to ski with ex Spanish cable ski champion Carlos Fidalgo and the Clemson Water Ski Team.

    I've been three times already, all free skiing. First two days was some pretty choppy water but today was awesome. Photo of day 1 below. This was on March 17th. Water was 44, but the air was about 70. It's cooled down since then, but summer is on the way!!!

    Today I shortened it to 35 for the first time this year. I ran it but I'm really happy nobody was watching.
