Burning off the Turkey Day Meal


Fall has been here for awhile now and the water temp in the lake is dropping. Even on a warm fall day, every time your turn came up it was a re-acquaintance with a wet life vest and then a plunge into water that never seemed to be warm enough for one to get used to.

But once up, it was fun. Since my surfboard is a few inches longer than the wakesurfing boards; the Tomo seemed like a natural fit.

After daylight savings time switched over, our nice summer nights of having sunlight until 8 p.m. are now far gone. As the sun dropped, we struggled with getting up the motivation to go overboard into the cool water.


At the very end of things, Adam just pulled out his phone and shot one part of a run and we scored these two keepers. Not bad for zero planning.

This session was probably the end of things simple.

Now will come wetsuits and work.
