First ride tomorrow! (On new ACL)
Super stoked, tomorrow the boats (X star and X15) go in the Illinois river. Air should be 62, water will be 48. Will be cold as hell but amped to ride anyways.

I have not wakeboarded since July 2nd of last summer when I blew my ACL on a roll to revert. I'm currnetly at the 6.5 month mark post-op.

I was setting up my gear tonight, and when I strapped in on the carpet it was weird to think that the last time my feet were in these boots I was screaming in pain and wondering how serious that loud pop I'd heard was going to be...

we just went out today in 49 degree water. I got a 4/3 wetsuit and it was freaking cold. I'm kind of a baby when it comes to cold water, but my determination to wakeboard made me do it. Bad choice in my opinion to ride choppy water hahah.

I'll be going through the exact situation pretty soon! I got a new acl and will prolly be 8 months post op when I it warms up here in central new york. (Mid April) Good luck with the riding!

Its one of the best feelings in the world combined with one of the most nerve racking :) Enjoy it!
