September they will have way more time to spend with you.

Kara,

September is good time to make an appointment with them, see if you can hook up with the same fitter

@KingGrump is also willing to look at em if you are ever up in Queens before you go, he can give you lots of ideas

I would go to Brooklyn but then I would have to find my passport. :D

I am actually going out to CA/Truckee in early September and then back again at the end of December. Do you guys think it is worth it to set up an appointment with the boot fitter this September? I figured I should wait, since in December I'd have actual feedback on what the boot feels like on skis/snow (assuming that there is snow!)....As of now, I only have my vague recollections from last season.

 

Thanks for everyone's insights. Much appreciated.

I would set the appt in September and give them a chance to look at it and make some adjustments.  You will be ready to ski in December and may pop back in for more.


I agree with this advice.

Greetings Eric! Thanks for the shout out on EpicSki!    I am looking forward to making insoles for your waterski. Pro waterskier, Brian Detrick, ranked 7th in the world is loving my footbeds in his ski. He recently made it to his best finish ever and will be coming up in the ranking for sure. Cheers! Buck. P.S. Starthaus does good work for sure, do give them the opportunity to get you dialed in. We do geat boot work as well. Just ask U.S. ski team members Travis Ganong, Bryce Bennett and Lila Lapanja. They are loving our proprietary Heel-Loc orthotics!

Thanks for everyone's advice....I will stop in at StartHaus in December to see what's going on.

 

I might also just be a bad skiier!

A skier that looks at all things to improve is never a bad skier, only one that seeks to continue improvement no matter the level.

Cheers,

That's an excellent way to think about it. I appreciate your encouragement and attitude. I just want to have fun and explore, when it comes down to it!
