    When is it to cold to ride?

    The wife and I rented a house at the lake I the ozarks in the middle of October for our anniversary. Just going to be the two of us,no kids. I'm debating on taking the ski or not. The water temp is usually around the 60's. With air temps around 60-70 during the day. I have a half wetsuit for me and a full for her,but she's not even close to excited about having to wear a suit. If it's that cold she's out. What do you guys think? Is it double without wetsuits and still comfortable?

    Sweats & windbreakers. Maybe some gloves.Try not to dump her in the water.

    in the water with a good wetsuit is surprisingly warm. Riding a jetski at 50mph with a splash here and there....... Freezing. The wind goes right through a hoodie, thermal, wetsuit jacket and wetsuit. Your face will also freeze. This is between 40 and 50 degrees though. Hopefully its warmer for you

    But think of the great possibilities to warm her up when you get back. As long as you keep the "big guy" warm.

    Hello ...come on down ! I ride normally in Oct. yes it is a little cooler. If its not raining ... and the sun is out not to bad @ all. A shorty wet suit is a good idea ... if you had a shorty for her & an lite jacket should be fine. Now if for some reason you fall off & go for a swim ... well the water is chilly but not un-bearable. Ha Ha goggles for the wet spray is a good idea.

    when the water is freezing over, its to cold to ride.

    although i hear some of the Connecticut crew will argue that with you...

    Its too cold when the water is no longer in a liquid state. I have a thick wet suit and have ridden in as cold as 28 degrees.

    Here in KY we don't have wet suits... we have chest waders... so if it's below 55 for the high i wear my rubber waders. If it's below 45 for the high i wear neoprene waders. It all depends on how dry you can stay really. We only winterize and never ride from November to early February. I put almost 10 hours on my ski this February right after i got it. October is no problem.
