Yup. Have not done it yet. Usually conflicts w a neighborhood Xmas party. And, the weather historically seems to drop like crazy a few days prior.... Or I'm a sissy. Both are good explanations.

Surfing could be a fun way to go and not have 25 deg air hitting our face at 30-40mph...

Fall skiing...where are the diehards!?

Went out with Hammer this morning for my first set on my new ski. Water was a brisk 61* in their shallow lake. BRR.

61 is trunks and a heater top conditions. I envy you and Hammer at that site. Looks spectacular. I think I'll be breaking out my drysuit for this weekend's runs with water in the upper 40's now.

55 Degrees in the air. Water (while officially unknown) numbed you in about 10 seconds flat.

Unique perspective how did you get that? Looks like your ski and shoulders are way out of alignment - hope it ended well!.

Yeah I used the Radar version of the clincher gloves for my last Dry Suit run this year for the first time. I run double fixed boots on my ski and typically don't have any issues getting out of the water but when you add the drag from a baggie Dry Suit if I didn't hit it just right I was having difficulties.

Once I figured out where to hold the rope with the clinchers coming out was easy. Only problem I could see was as you state letting go quickly might become an issue. I also will typically drop one hand off the rope while turning and found getting my hand back on the handle a bit challenging. It beats a missed start but I personally can only see using the clinchers for Dry Suit runs.
