First ride back on the water! Well apart from New Years Day, but its been nearly three months! We’ve been having some cold weather over here and on the weekend I had earmarked to shred, I had the choice from a frigid 3C Saturday shred, or a balmy 12C Sunday shred. I chose Sunday.
I was able to enjoy some quiet laps in my full winter attire, jacket and all. Even gloves for my first set out until my hands grew custom to conditions. Ah nothing quite like fresh laps on a Sunday morning before Spring has spring to dust off the cobwebs.
The park at Box End was mostly in, the winter does hectic things to cable parks throughout the winter, like freezing over, storms, high winds etc…. but it was seriously enjoyable for an introduction back into wakeboarding after some time off.
I rode for an hour and had all the fun. I only came in because my lower arms were like noodles. Forearm pump from the laps with gloves, and then my ‘grippy’ muscles started to go. No matter what I do over the winter, nothing seems to prepare me for the arm pump – let me know what you do to combat this please!
As always, I had a great time on the water, always better to go out for a few laps than not to get the stoke levels up!
