    Finally got on the water!

    Woohoo got out on the water and put almost an hour on the FZS, didn't hold it wide open yet since I'm breaking it in but man it flies to whatever speed I want to get to. Loving the sound too, might annoy some people but I think it's awesome, just got to be careful around the launch area lol.

    Air temp around 55 when I got on and the water had to be sub40s. Had my NRS wetsocks under my 2mm boots, my UA coldgear compression leggings and rash guard under my shorty wetsuit with unlined warmup pants, neoprene life vest and jet pilot tour coat over everything topped with Oakley H2O goggles. I was pleasantly warm, couldn't even feel the water when I jumped in to get the ski off the trailer and even ended up having to partly zip down the tour coat.

    Didn't run it at full speed yet so I can't tell you if it has any bounce but it gets up fast and turns in very well at the speeds I ran it so far. I'll update once I get a couple of hours on it and open it up all the way.

    Congrats on finally blowing the cobwebs out of that machine. Looks like you had glassy water conditions and had the proper northern state riding gear.

    Thanks! Yeah bought it in Sept last year so we just left it stored for free at the dealer. Also that Jetpilot Tour Coat is freakin awesome, XL fits perfectly over my life vest and its warm as heck, I'll probably be out on the water as much as possible regardless of the temps once the lake we have our cabin on thaws out anyway... lol. The one I was at yesterday is only a few minutes from my house but it's way too busy on weekends once it warms up to spend much time at IMO. 75deg and not a breath of wind today, I should have taken the day off... lol.
