    Questions from being bald to footwear

    Are you bald? How do you protect the top of your head while jet skiing?

    Footwear: I tried barefoot and it seems rather unstable as I can't plant my feet securely. Tried columbia sandals, tore my feet apart.
    Currently wearing an old pair of New Balance. They seem to work the best but the lateral movement and being wet seems to be breaking them down quickly.

    What footwear do you use while riding?

    Thanks
    Scott

    Not fully bald but buzzed weekly on less than a 1 setting.

    Spray on sunblock works wonders. Just make sure you reapply it.

    Jetpilot shoes. Designed for riding. they kick arse

    A do-rag works good, you can pick them up at any Harley dealer.

    I just use a Doo-rag that I got at wallyworld. Works great. As far as footwear. I go barefooted or wear flipflops. I don't usually ride for long periods of time so never really had a problem.

    Coppertone 45 lotion in the blue bottle, on the head. I just apply it like shampoo...of course I look like a raving maniac afterwards, but my head don't burn! AZ got some sunshine, ya know! My old grey hair doesn't seem to stop that sun anymore!

    Rode the ocean with waves that were at least 5 feet. took some waves right over the bow, I don't think any hear wear would have survived.
    40SPF worked will.
    For the lake a doo-rag would work.

    I definitely need some shoes for next season. The old NBs are were heavy yesterday.

    Thanks for the info
