    Water Temps for riding.

    Just curious if any cautions should I use when riding in colder water since fall is upon us here on the eastcoast. Also, what is the coldest as far as water temps I can ride the ski (RXT-X 260). Any tips would be appreciated.

    I have seen vids of guys riding with ice chunks in the water.

    Beerdart has a pic of a ski going into a mostly frozen lake! I'm sure he'll post!

    Just don't fall in!

    4TEC motor will run in any cold water as long as its not frozen, and the thermo will regulate the temp...
