Thread: Cold Riding
01-06-2010, 09:21 AM #1
Since COLD is the word of the week, just wondering what is the coldest air temps anyone has ever ridden their ski in. Florida is having one of the longest stretches of cold weather on history this week with temps in the mid 20s at nite in central florida.
For me, i think the hi 50s are about it. We get acclimated to the heat down here and are cold weather wimps..

I tested a few props and pumps over the weekend. Truck said it was 48!!
Never touched the water though. Had wife back me in and had a rope tied to the truck to keep ski from sliding off. She threw it to me when I came back up on the trailer. It was painful to say the least. The northern guys have more gear for this crap.
My cutoff point for rec riding is 70.

50*F air and 40-45*F water for me. It's crazy how much quicker the ski feels compared to the hot and humid summer months.

32f air temp and 35f water temp in 04 when I got my rxp... guess I couldnt wait to ride. Coast guard pulled up and read 215hp and asked if I would race haha. I told him I have 15 minutes on it, when I get 10 hrs Ill race you.

48 or so, high winds and big chop on my 96 XP. I had a sweatshirt on and my snow pants because I didnt have cold weather riding gear. On the way back the chop splash was blowing into my face and I was SOAKED when I got to the launch - it was a miserable ride.
