I saw some pics of a K1 with that long skirt that still allows free range of leg movement.
It got me thinking…
I train year round as long as the water isn’t hard. My training is on bulkheaded lagoons so there is zero chance of rough water.
My winter boat is a Futura II. Stable with enough speed to make for a good workout.
Two things are bothersome:
- bundling up in fleece with rain pants
- ice cold water on legs/azz from drip.
Am I nuts for thinking of making a skirt that could be velcro’d in position to offer both warmth and water protection?
Again- my boat is on my dock- I plop it in the lagoon and have a two mile loop with zero exposure to open water.
I just think a skirt would offer a solution to the cold(weather) and cold water…
I love my skis so don’t say get a sik. Don’t need/want a drysuit because I will never venture away from the lagoons in winter.
Till now I am fine with the fleece-rainpants combo. But thought about the skirt idea.
