Not including all of you that ride year round. I wish i was fortuante enough to do that. But here in good ole St Cloud MN, our season goes til about october, or it did last year, and no wetsuits i might add. in fact i believe October 4th of last year was our last day on the water til we called it a season. haha

Thanksgiving Day weekend
Old    A-dub (behindtheboat)      Join Date: Aug 2006       09-05-2008, 12:46 PM Reply   

Edit... usually once or twice after the first hard freeze because winterizing gets old.

With wetsuits (shorties) - through November in Dallas - basically as long as air temp doesn't dip into low 50's consistently.

Year round! Although, January and February aren't quite as fun.

I'll ride until about mid october, then it's all about motoX and snowboarding....mostly motox.

never ends. Ride and learn more in the winter months. Slap on a dry suite and just wear a sweatshirt and jeans underneath and tuff it out. I think the coldest the lakes get in AZ are about 58 from what I've seen on my guage

I'm proud to say that since I started riding last August I've rode year round. ( Even with hernia surgery this June)

Pretty much done already, we had a couple mornings with frost and lake temp below 60. I would still ride, but no one else will, thats life in the great white north.

i effing hate minnesota right now. it went from 90's to 60's overnight. and now the water has gone down 10-12 degrees in 1 week, and i don't think we've broken 70 in like 5 days. End Rant.

My last few sets are usually in late October or early November. With a dry suit, of course. The main part of my season ends in mid to late September, though.

"thanksgiving day weekend also here in ontario"
Thanksgiving's on the second monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the States. Not that it really matters, but the people in the U.S. saying they ride until Thanksgiving are about a month and a half luckier than those of us in Canada who ride until Thanksgiving.

For most of the moderately sane people in the PNW, we ride consistently till around Thanksgiving, then occasionally December-February. When the water's in the 40's and the air temps are in the 30's, wakeboarding isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Bravo to Cliff and other polar bears like him who ride year round -- even trunking it sometimes -- but most of us prefer to shred the pow on the slope then.

Ya the weather here in Kansas is getting colder sooner than in the past. But I've got a wetsuit so it should last until Mid October as long as it doesn't get too cold too soon. I hate Kansas, wish I was south so I can ride all year round. At least I've got a cable lake 20 minutes away. Can't bitch too much.

mid to late october for me.. here in southern ontario. Anything after that and its not enjoyable to ride unless you have a wet/dry suit.

late October for us here in Michigan. I call it the second season; cold air, cold water, but empty lakes and you're in prime riding condition from the entire summer.

yeah toward the end of the seaon I just start to go balls out on everything, because if i get injured now, its like whatever im not gonna miss much more of the season, and fall sucks all together. Plus I like to use the cold water as a motivation tool to land all my tricks. heh heh heh

TS, lots of people ride year round in Kansas, I spent years going out New Years Day with a large group. Wichita can easily be ridden year round.

I don't think its so much a "year round" thing, even in FLA, you're not riding every day in December and Jan, and maybe not at all, but you have a day or two that are warm and you may want to ride.

My season is just getting started again. Boat has been out of commission for 3 weeks but will be done today! Will ride here in OK through mid November with wetsuits
Old    Brooke (dizzyg)      Join Date: May 2005       09-08-2008, 11:18 AM Reply   
typically Oct 31st is when we put the last boat away. Ours is usually the last boat off the water as the rest of the crew has to deal with storage, ours just goes into a boat house/garage on the water. We'll ride until night time temps stay below freezing for more than a couple of hours and starts putting the heater core at risk. I'm hoping for Halloween again this year!

we busted out the dry suits this weekend in SE wisconsin. It wasn't necessary but I wasn't cold either. Saturday I was cold, sunday I was toasty warm and very comfortable!

we are done.

There is an outside chance I might get out once more but it's unlikely. Overnight lows are hovering aorund the freezing mark with daytime highs at about +15. Its also starting to get dark much earlier

Our last trip of the season ended with us having to rush one of my friends to the hosipal with a dislocated shoulder. It was gross, and I didn't get to ride :-(

It was a good season, not really for progression but for overall fun-li-ness.

We bought a lake lot this year, so next year will be fun getting it all set up (picture attached)

Winter is going to be great! snowmobile, ski snowboard.
