Had some fun this past weekend in the far North of Minnesota. Colin has always been known for going big, but I think this pic really helps put it into perspective. Our ropes are the same length, so there is no depth trickery going on.

cool pic - in too many ways - seeing you guys in wet suits already is not encouraging :-(

Wetsuits this weekend?? Please tell me that was because it was 58deg and windy? I thought about wearing one because of that... But just the water isn't that cold.

15-16 feet up.

Must have been up in the Vermilion area?

Water has to be upper 60's everywhere in mn right now. Yes it feels warmer than the air when it's relatively cold out. Like the last 3 weeks air temp of like 77 max and lots of upper 60's highs.

Yea, we were up on Vermillion (pretty much Canada for those who aren't familiar with MN). The water was about 67, air 66, cloudy and windy...called for wetsuits.

That is a pretty good look at the size of the wake. I'm 5'11", and you can see that it comes up to my upper thigh.

Man the picture barely does this justice compared to seeing it from the boat, so big and just explosive.

It felt like a fall weekend for sure, one of those that the temp changes 15 degrees when the sun goes behind the clouds. Hoodie on hoodie off back and forth. I still thought it was pretty decent for being that far up north in the MN summer that wasn't.

We were on Lake Carlos in Alex on Saturday- was 76 degree water and air- a little brisk, but not too bad. Then we were on Sugar Lake Sunday afternoon - temp was 78 water and 78 air- was nice.

It has been a weird summer. Lakes in the cities are still in the upper 70's low 80's tho.

Is Colin on a LF Witness here (trying to place the board he is on)? I've seen him on the Watson and Harley through the years, so figured it must be a LF board of some kind. Wake looks ridiculous as usual!

Yes, he's riding the Witness, for the time being. Once the 2014 gear rolls out he'll be back on the Watson Classic.
