Took these pictures this morning in my backyard around 6am. Thought they were beautiful.
If it wasn't for the fact that the water is 50 degrees and I had school in an hour, I would've torn it up.
As the season comes to a close (stored our boat and took our last session 2 days ago), I've been starting to regret not trying all the tricks I wanted. I progressed significantly over the summer, landing my first invert during that last session 2 days ago. But I still feel like I could've done more.

I know the "end of the season" isn't a familiar phrase with a lot of you, because many ride year round or close to it. But my question is this, have you had any end of the season withdrawls? I definitely regret not nutting-up and going as big as I could have. Just wondering if anyone else feels the same. It's been a good season overall, and I'm pumped for next year. Just thought I'd share.

Sorry to hear you're season is almost or already over. Water temps down here still 82 degrees. Nice pics by the way. I don't see how the northern people do it with riding season being about 4 months with hardly (if any) warm water.

It's actually been a surprisingly warm September up here. This is the first year I've been able to take sessions this late, but the weather forcast this week is starting to predict 40s and 50s. The summers are awesome though, July and August mostly. I'm in upstate NY by the way.

Yea i'm definitely experiencing the post summer blues. My riding season was only 3 months this year. I ride in Ontario, or as we refer to it here.... Onterrible. I might put the boat in the water one last time this weekend, but the forecast is somewhat daunting... High of 51 and low of 37 this Saturday!!

Man, you need a dry suit. Up here in Canada we have rode into November and it's pretty darn cool up here. I plan to ride for another month. A dry suit makes a world of difference. Plus you shouldn't waste that butter.

This is from last November. It's me waving good bye to the season:

I live north of Napanee. I wear a wet suit and am planning on riding for another 2-3 weeks.
