Cool Tubing?

I noticed this shot from Friday's WeirsCAM timelapse. Could they be tubing on December 6th? (water temp 39°)

Default Tubing?

Wow, hearty souls. We used to water ski with wet suits up until October. Used to get a feeling of owning the lake. Some early mornings the water was just as smooth as glass. Good old memories for me.

Default Pardon the slightly off thread remarks

These shots are making us howl down here in Florida! You can always tell the snowbirds from the natives because the former (us) are wearing shorts and short sleeves when it’s 60 degrees, and the natives are all bundled up with coats, scarves, hats, etc during what they refer to as “cold snaps”.....very amusing. Imagine their disbelief and horror at the above shots! Must admit they give me the shivers. 🙄

Wake boarding on/in 39-degree water is so totally no problem ...... even you can do it .... just go to your favorite search or internet store and enter "affordable drysuit."
