I’m a 48 year old female accountant. Winter coincides with our busy tax season so I usually hibernate in my office next to the heater and work my way through winter
. Last summer we bought a section beside a waterski lake and have been waterskiing practically daily. Heading into Easter I wondered how my new addiction would cope with the declining temperatures. Previously I had been wearing Seventhwave springsuit so purchased a custom-fit Viper 4/3 Steamer
. The only words to describe it are “absolutely incredible”. I never dreamt I would still be waterskiing in July. The water simply doesn’t get in, my swimsuit underneath stays dry. The trick with the plastic bag makes it very easy to get on and off
. Its also comfortable and flexible.
I’m usually the first person to feel the cold just in normal day to day conditions and people can’t believe I’m still waterskiing – I can’t! It’s the suit not me! As an amateur skier being able to waterski through winter means I don’t have to relearn my skills next summer! It has saved my sanity (and therefore my husbands!
PS In fact when we were in Wanaka I did feel the cold tremendously on the ski field and I actually said to my husband Dean that I wish I was wearing my wetsuit – then I wouldn’t be cold!!!
