The one Week you need studded tires!

No way on trails, lucky fat bike trail was fairly ice free. Got to know all of Addison making up my own ride. Cold 25 degrees too!

Mr. Softie Ice Cream at Bloomer Saturday

Warm thick heavy snow with 5 psi tires and 45 degrees. Snowboarding on bike but it was hard blazing the first tracks. Slow ride but thats what 4" of melting ice cream give you. Made the rim too! Wish I was here in the morning, different ride in dry packed pow.

Big 2 Sport sunny Windy Sunday at Walled Lake

Perfect 12m day at noon with 30+ miles on the snowkite. Sun and 20 degrees but not really that cold with 10-25+ NW breezes. The old 12m Pivot worked perfectly with the repaired dead canopy not even noticeable on the ice. 3 hours on the lake with the big follow up at 4:30 over the Tree Farm for the Fat Biking into the darkness. Great packed 3-4" pow fattie tire tracks gave the ride a truly winter feel with some sliding turns and slippery uphills. Home by 7 with hero beers and Alleve! Winter Is indeed finally here.

Brighton biking and boarding Sunday

Busy day in the chilly 20 degree temps. 2.5 bike and 1.5 board all in the sun with no one out on the trails or slopes. Bike ride was frozen singletrack at 6-7 psi grippy and snow at Brighton was semi groomed ice - super grippy with the Magtek S-7 edges. Loved it. Perfection in 2 sport day.

SPI Day 4 it’s on before we fly out it’s 9m!

Flight out in 5 hours with rain and 63 degrees and gales coming later today - lets sail. 9m for me and 12 for JB but it's solid and and steady NNW again 18/22. Huge jumps and loads of deep carving with the 9 and it's well worth getting all wet again one last time. Killer trip = steady winds and flat water. Love this place. Back again soon.

SPI Day 3 and it’s 11 Pivot time!

Break open the new kite. it's time to try 11 m in north northwest winds 15 to 20+. Great day on the water from 11 AM till just sneaking in at the last possible minute at 4:15 making a long downhill run from the North Park. Great day love the kite and love the jumping. A little bit warmer today in the 70s but still a great day of carving and slashing in the slicks the water was as flat as ever! Dinner at Parrot Eyes was a great wrap up for the day.

SPI Day 2 More NW and it’s 8m Nexus time!

It's on again 20-35 same but steady NW and jumps and carving galore. 8 Core Nexus is even better than small XR for stable big jumps and parking the kite to fly. 6 hours on the water almost and nothing but steady winds. Lots of smiles and dinner with Shawn at Tom and Jerry's! Nothings no wet of the kites we brought yet!! Slicks crazy riding inside condo maze.
