Moved back home to AZ, Phoenix area, got an old inboard with my brother, and still hitting the lake 2x's a month, still trunkin' it. I hope to get a wetsuit to extend even longer. Not sure of the water temps...

Who else is still at it? if not, when did/do you stop? where do you live? how cold is the water? Wet suit? Dry suit?

just thought i would ask...

Year round in Otown. Shorty whenever the temp is in the 70's and up. R&R when in the 60's and below.

I live in the middle of Texas. Air temps around 65-72 the past couple weeks and this week. Water temps 70-72, no shorty but chilly or shorty and comfy.

Wow 70-72 is what our water gets to in the summer lol. I don't put on a wetsuit until it's below 60. I'm sure if you're used to always riding in warm water then 70 would feel cold though. I'm just used to it haha. The water right now is probably in the low 50s or high 40s depending on the weather, and I'm heading out Friday. It's suppose to be 50 degrees and Sunny so we're hitting it here in Idaho!

Once the stupid daylight saving time hits, it's impossible for us to go out after work here in the Vancouver WA/Portland OR area. Plus, it's been pretty much raining non-stop for the last 2 weeks. Sucks. The latest I've made it is the first week in November before having to throw in the towel and winterize.

Our water temps are 50 - 51 right now and air temps have been in the 50's. I have a drysuit, gloves, booties, so no problem there. I've done water temps at 42 degrees on a New Years Day run before.

I have to winterize my boat when the air temps get to freezing at night. Hasn't happened yet but it's right around the corner for me. In fact, I will probably winterize tomorrow as I just don't see any clear weather during daylight hours anytime in the foreseeable future. I do have some friends that store their boats in heated storage so if they go out, I can jump on board with them.

Out rivers and lakes never freeze so aside from the rain and overnight temps, we could conceivably ride year round. But snowboard season will start soon, so we'll be transitioning to winter sports.

In the spring, I've done it where I've snowboarded in the morning, drove home and put the boat in to wakeboard and wakesurf in the afternoon. Triple board day for the win!!!

I'm like you_da_man I live in DFW and water temp is still 70. I went out last Monday (with a wet suit because I'm a wuss) and am waiting for a sunny day to get back out!

Rode yesterday, water was 60, air was 50 and windy at 10 mph. We trunk it til December. I usually take one set in early December in a heater shirt, then a set or two in January and february in a 3/2 full suit... by march it is heater shirt time. If I get to ride in December this year, then I will have ridden at least once every month in 2014 and 2015, which was a goal of mine that I did not succeed in 2013.

My usual riding lake is 90-91 degree water 3-4 months out of the year. Yes, we southerners are spoiled with very warm water. The real nice thing also is that having water that warm makes for staying out late tied up with other boats enjoyable without getting cold. Nothing for us to float until 10pm-11pm. There's also a powerplant lake near by so their machinery keeps the lake reasonably warm/cool during the winter months. In 27yrs of owning a boat I've never seen our lake get below 53 degrees so technically we can ride year round just have to deal with air temps.

Down here in AZ we ride year round, wetsuits probably Dec-Mar.

NJ - Usually May through October depending on temps, ambition, and suckering anyone to be a third. Wetsuit weather for sure towards the end. I've done into Dec once but that was an unusually warm year, still chilly though. Short daylight in winter doesn't help. If they're gonna screw with the clocks they ought to just push it forward several hours so people get done work around middle of the daylight period into the warmest part of the day.

This year late August was my last ride, injured knee, back, neck and shoulder among other bits. Totally sucks because the water is still in the 50s and we've had some warm days.

Water was 82 last weekend, should start dropping soon. A few 50* nights will have it into the 70s quick. Then its heater tops. Once it drops under 70 I switch boats to the center console in the high and dry and park the Nautique at the house. Fish all winter and splash the SN for crazy Yankees come to visit who dont mind 60* water. We ride dirt bikes, hunt, fish and play golf all winter. Naples Marco Island Fl.

mother nature has a been a ho lately in East Texas. last 5 or 6 weekends have been rain from Friday to Sunday and lots of it. I think we've had 36" of rain in a month. Lakes are full! but end of season sucked a fatty. Its off-road season, getting the jeep dialed in for a ride this weekend.

to answer OPs question, we're usually done my mid/late october. was warmer than normal this year

11/11/2015. The latest I've made it with my boat! Yesterday was a surprise treat. We got a few hours of sunshine between the pissing rain we've been having for the last 3.5 weeks.



The wife and I were rocking the drysuit, gloves, and booties. the water wasn't THAT cold at 52, but with the air at 52 also, it was awesome to get out of the water and be warm and dry!!!

The wife rockin' her first ever time in a drysuit.


We did use the heater on the drive back as the rain started back up.

Last trip of the year! So happy to get that one in!

In SLC, Utah. Took the boat out one last time on Sunday and winterized her yesterday. Was using a neb-top and shorts until two weeks ago and then switched to my drysuit. I don't bother using a wetsuit. If I want to tow my boat 4hrs to southern UT, we can basically ride year round, and will be in a drysuit until at least the end of May.

Ryan... What lake did you hit on Sunday? Pretty cold up the canyons by now.

Dreddy, we were at Willard Bay. It was a bit cooler than I expected because of the lower air temps.

We ride in shorts all year round in Doha, Qatar. The Christmas morning ride is a favourite, always followed by Skype calls from home saying "isn't it tough living in the Middle East"?!

Az water gets into the 50s. Only a handful of times way back did it ever drop into the high 40s. Get a wet or dry suit and ride year round
