    6balls, the lot next to me is owned by a guy that skis on Mission bay. I can hook you up.
    Shut up and ski

    Cool, will be in touch as the time approaches. Would be fun to take the ski and get a pre-season set.

    Who knows what March will bring? Maybe the Sierras will have snow. Maybe we can waterski in Mission bay or at my lakes in the desert. Richard gave you my contact - Contact me for sure. If I'm in town we can probably get a Mission bay ride. Or hopefully there will be a big snow dump and I'll be in the Sierras and you will get more work done.

    It's always too cold in San Diego. But it never gets like MN water (frozen??!). March has some people trunking it - but I personally need a wetsuit year round in San Diego. If you are willing to coach some college kids, you should be able to get a ride.

    Plenty of skiing at Canyon Lake, about 75 min. North of San Diego... Current water temp 56 degrees and temps around 80.

    Last I heard the folks at California Skier, the local Mastercraft dealer, at Lake Elsinore had "control" of the slalom course in the channel at the lake. It is a little over an hour from SD depending on traffic and where in SD you're coming from. You might get in touch with them.

    If our schedule coincides, Id be more than happy to pull you until your arms fall out! I'm in Canyon Lake which is right next to Lake Elsinore. March should be real nice! The water temp is 56 right now according to Dans post above. In my opinion once the water hits 60, its on!

    Appreciate all of the input, thanks!

    Come on out, John. I'll be skiing today with K. Hyatt. 10-12 ish.

    @horton

    Bakersfield isn't that bad. Yesterday we had 60+ degree air and 50+ degree water. Way over the 100 degree rule and no fog. We didn't even need dry suits.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 27,757 Administrator
    @danbirch not today and I do not think I can start the year with Hyatt. You have to work up to that.

    @PBD what lake are you skiing on and I hate to ask but who are you? (Should have made everyone use real names when I started this site. )

    @horton - we used to be able to include our names and some general info on our user profile. That option isn't there any more that I know of. Any way to add a members profile category?

    Horton, I'm not sure of temps right now. My wife has said that the air temp has been in the low 80's alot. I've been working out of town lately but will be back the 25th thru the 3rd if that works out for you. I won't have anything to do other than avoid honey do s as much as I can. Just let me know and we'll ski our a$$e$ off!!!

    Could happen... Canyon is a hell of a lot closer than Imperial

    @horton,
    I'm Phil Dandridge. You might remember that you sold me an RS1 a couple of years ago.

    Still skiing at Ironwood.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 27,757 Administrator
    Ooooo the all white one? I still talk about that ski. It did not exactly work for me but is a weird way it was almost the perfect ski. Darn

    Yep, the all white one that was stiffer than the "regular" production skis.

    It is still working real well for me.
