Hey Tracy, thanks for the advice on the straps! I'm taking them over to a ski shop today! Btw, do you know what the bright yellow L shaped pieces are that came with the boots? I haven't bought a pair since 1999, so I'm a bit out of the loop...
Yes, I'm from VA Beach, and I ride off of the Chesapeake Bay (salt water) in Back Bay and Linkhorn Bay. If you're coming for a visit, just send me an email and you can come out with my friends!
We don't have perfect conditions (a little choppy, boat traffic, salt water, and jellyfish), but we always have a good time! If you're looking for glassy lake water, I know some people around here go near Newport News/Chesapeake. Also, you can call Ski World and ask for some recommendations. Sorry I don't have too many leads, I'm mainly into kitesurfing and just wake when there's no wind;)
