Didn't make it out this weekend. Got to go the last 2 weekends so now I have the fever bad. Did anybody else get to go this weekend? We have more storms coming this week so I suppose the water will be up too. Hope someone else is having better luck.

We had the edge of the bad weather here. Not much rain but very windy and a lot cooler temps than we've been having. Didn't go out.

We hit Lake Austin today. Air was 70, water MUCH colder than that. The wife and I both took our first sets of the year, and I was happy to discover that I haven't lost a step since last November when we hung it up for the year. The wife cleared the wakes on her 2nd attempt, which thrilled me to no end!

Enjoy the season everyone! I'm pumped to get out there and ride!

RD,
We had similar plan but the stiff wind changed our minds. About 6pm last night we said we should have gone out today (Sunday). Having LASIK over at Mann this week so dr doesn't want me in the boat. And no boarding for a month.

Most of the lake was butter. High temp near 70, water mid-50's and in the drysuit I'm toasty warm with shorts and t-shirt

It doesn't look like its going to warm up to my standards this coming weekend again. I'm glad some folks in Florida are making out a little here and there. Storms are set to come in again on Wednesday. Now the lake will be up and will have debris in it. That time of year I guess.

Boats were out and I was bicycling around the waterfront in a t shirt but I'm still about three months away from getting the boat ready.

LASIK sounds like something you should get done in november. but just because you can't go boating doesnt mean you can help me work on my boat!

My buddy got this done 2 years ago in March and by May he was able to start wake boarding and surfing but had to carry the drops all summer and use them pretty reg.

i want lasik. we cant wear contact lenses on well sites due to the risk of a flash fire melting them to your eyes so i just had to invest 400 bucks into prescription safety glasses. would be nice to have lasik and just not worry about this stuff any more
