    Any thoughts or ideas for some riding gear?

    This could I guess go in the mudbug section..

    but I am looking for some stuff to for mudbug like needed things, and want to know some other opinions on gear, what is good/not what I need/don't.

    I wear glasses, so I was thinking of those straps that go behind my head that hold my glasses on...

    are there any goggle type things I can wear? I want to order stuff quickly, since mudbug is comming up!

    I have things like

    Life Jacket
    Gloves
    Swim Trunks

    Shoes? wrestling shoes?

    Do you get phone service in the bayou? A solar panel thing that stores away some cheap one to charge my phone on the bayou?

    Any other type of things that I should get that you guys suggest getting?

    I appreciate your help in advance, I really have no clue what to do with my glasses... and I don't want to do contacts right now..

    thanks guys

    -Kale

    Tools if your a wrencher
    Sunscreen
    Bug Spray if you can't handle a few bites at night....
    Sand/Small Anchor
    Water Shoes
    Small Cooler or Several Water Bottles to Freeze & Keep on Ski
    Extra Lanyard
    Extra Key
    Trailor Items - Tire (Fix A Flat etc) Lug Wrench Portable Air Pump
    IMO - Contacts Better Option for Riding.....

    Since you have list going I could not help myself, but the most important thing is:



    Gator repellent

    Okay, I have been wondering this for awhile now....and I'm a northern fella so don't hold this against me.....are the gators pretty chill or do you have to keep an eye on them? I wouldn't think they'd be an issue considering the gathering you guys have had the past 3 years now, but I gotta ask. Up here I've seen black bear on golf courses and I don't stick around for too long. Next hole pronto! Not sure if you guys treat gators the same way or not.

    Yes, if using glasses/sunglasses go for some type of strap for retention or that floats. Since you wear glasses the cheapest thing maybe to use some type of goggles, sometimes I use a pair of smaller size goggles that I have and they are not too bad. I really do not like the large style goggles that some use on the water. Another option maybe to use prescription sunglasses, most companys offer them.

    In life jackets- I use a Jet Pilot 100mph rated vest, it is sort of thick in the front but I can live with that. I also have one of the Jet Pilot neoprene vests, and without a doubt I hate it. I also believe that it would offer little to no impact protection.

    Gloves- I very seldom ever use them any more.

    Shorts-anything from swim trunks to board shorts and sometimes even cargo shorts. But I always were some type of compression shorts under them, helps prevent the chapped crack on the longer rough water days.

    Shoes- I prefer some type of lace up or something with straps to hold them on. The cheaper slip on shoes come off just as quick as they go on if you come off your ski at any speed.

    Some type of dry storage is nice for carrying your cell phone, small camera etc. Most around here either uses some type of plastic dry bag or a small Pelican type case.

    i hade a problem storing all my stuff on the ski, fenders, dock lines ect. i bought a stern bag boy did it increase my storage capacity by a ton. i recommend it for gpr guys who do a lot of traveling or carry a lot of gear.

    i personally just stick my regular shoes in the storage container in the front. to me there is no reason to get a ride specific shoe unless it goes all the way up and covers your ankles good encase you fall off to support them.

    Have you ever tried contacts?

    I used to just ride with my glasses but I was always scared of losing them so I finally got contacts and wear sunglasses that are big enough to keep the wind out of my eyes. Contacts are the way to go!
