February who is skiing now?

cougfancougfan Posts: 302 Crazy Baller
Since no one else has started a skiing In February thread here goes.
1/2 of the Wednesday night crew free skied and barefooted Big lake today(no Ken or @Rednucleus ☹️) air 46 water 40 sun was shinning a few clouds and no wind made for pretty good water conditions. Skied 4 sets while Doug footed once and skied once. Had the lake to ourselves if u can believe that😉 finally got a one day break in the weather supposed to be nasty the next week or so.
Doug just received his brand new custom made footin suit that he got to try out don’t know if the pics show it clearly enough but he has his business logo printed on the back “Lemley Chapel” and his name plate on the front says “the footin mortician” yes he owns a funeral home
Stay tuned for more of the adventures of the Wednesday night crew
Hopefully we will be back at full strength soon just not the same skiing without the the others

    We've got some -36F coming in the next few days, the fireplace will be getting used. New issue of Waterski Journal showed up yesterday, that's as close as I'll be getting to any skiing for quite some time.

    We got a set in today. Was calm and overcast (Air 49, water 45) when we committed, but a solid heavy mist when we got going. Still calm though! First day this winter in a dry suit, I'd forgotten how wonderful those are. Great way to end a long week!

    @gschorr up here in the PNW drysuits, hot water showers and boat heaters are a must! The Wednesday night crew doesn’t ski without them 🤣 the weather for next week looks iffy but there is a chance we might be able to ski in between the rain and snow that is forecast☹️

    We had our coldest night of the season last Thursday, dropping to 26° in many surrounding communities. Mild winter temps for many, but we’re in Central FL where everyone thought the world was ending
    with all molecular motion coming to a stop. Friday morning the air was still, water conditions were glassy perfection and the air had warmed into the low 50s by 10am. Properly armed with our drysuits, my wife and I enjoyed yet another winter ski day in total cozy comfort and our public lake all to ourselves. We’re hooked on winter skiing.

    @cougfan, I agree dry suits, showers and heaters are nice, but having skied in the PNW since '87 mostly without them, they're definitely not a must! I admit I'm generally pretty cheap, so when the seals of my suit needed to be replaced, I punted and didn't fix them for years (opting instead for a 3/2 wetsuit)..

    Heater and shower would be great, but we make do with thermoses of hot water that we can pour over skiers hands/head when they stop to shorten line or take a break, or heat back up when done. Not elegant, but it works!

    Hope to find a way to ski with you and the Wednesday night crew sometime. In the meantime, enjoy!

    Free Ski Set at Puddingstone Reservoir San Dimas, CA Feb 6th. 78* Air 62* Water. Only boat on lake for a good hour, but that didn't stop our own rollers from showing up on the otherwise glass:

    @The_MS What was the water temp Sunday?
  • The_MSThe_MS Posts: 6,051 Member of the BallOfSpray Hall Of Fame
    @MickeyThompson it was the coolest set of the year with 58 water and 64 air. The sun was shining and no wind made it OK.
    Shut up and ski

    Big day today! The water warmed to 66˚and both my wife and I graduated from our O'Neill Fluid Neo drysuits, which kept us in the water these past couple of months, to our Camaros. Spring is in the air! But our Fluid Neos were the best money we ever spent, as neither one of us has even the slightest tolerance to cold. These suits made the difference between skiing -- in absolute comfort no less -- or sitting at home staring at our Prostar wishing we were skiing. I think O'Neill's marketing department missed the boat with the name, however. They should have called them the Endless Summer suits, as we stayed just as warm in them as we would be in skiing in summer.

    Skied a couple times this week, yesterday at Jodi's Ski Skool. Yesterday wore just a camaro top and board shorts, but thinking next time out I may not even need the top. We'll be in the 70s in no time. Spring is here!!!!

    No skiing for us up here in the PNW for awhile. Air temps in the upper 20’s with snow☹️ and rain in the forecast for the next week. Maybe by the end of next week the weather will cooperate and we can get back on the water. For now all I can do is read about all the Florida ballers skiing in shorts and rash guards☹️ and only dream of warm weather
