Sunday continues Saturday...11m action.

11m and it wasn’t windy as forecasted. 15-20 dead south on the Mako was bad for jumping but made it work in some decent waves. Sunny and 75. Duke later but should have went back out in the foil. Fun morning with all the regulars out. 

2 Sport Saturday starts at Pontiac Early with JB.

One loop sun and 65 degrees. Dry sand abounds but no problems with the 4.8’s. 2 sport Saturday with kiting on tap later today. 

Of to MB at 2pm and perfect foiling 10m - great session with a couple good jibes to toeside. No kite loops but I though about it!

Cold Sunny Highland is the best

Looping with JB on a perfect early fall Saturday. Perfect temps and trail conditions. If it was like this all the time, I’d ride here every weekend.

Lex on the 11 mostly meh... then at 5oclock...

4+ fun hours on the water on a cool sunny Lex North day. It should have been a lot windier but it didn't really kick in until 5pm which by then I had the Mako out. Now OP'd I need the 9m but its really too lat e- except for those 'lucky' ones arriving late. Good potential all day but just too late when I had already left it all out on the water earlier.

CV Weekend DP - worthy 9m sun and fun.

Nice winds and direction. 20-25 all morning and SW turning West. Highlight-9m and Jester spending 2 hours sailing with Craig up to Oak Pointe and enjoying all the 2-4’ inside shorebreak - with one tack back to CV beach. 30+ kiters out and lots of time playing around the breakwall. Got to test 11m patch and it held solid through the day and on the water. Greidy Daiz jumping over the beach area was another highlight on a 14m too!

Saturday Perfect sun dry and 75.

Out with Chuck and new friends Jim and Jennifer. 2 loops easy with the new Cranberry lot to park. Great day out and to get caught up with Chuck.

Metro Late 9m Short and Sweet

Missed most of good 9m day. But worth it for an hour powered on the 9. Weeds made the first 10 minutes on Duke a nightmare. Mako only going forward. 

Wednesday Eve Carbon rolling Bloomer.

Still love these wheels. So light and quick.

Caseville Saturday all day blow- with my gear blow ups

Saturday 9:30am rigging a 7 - sunny and waves - there’s nothing better. 20-30+ barbell winds with a predicted mid day lull. Tough launch with dead onshore wind and chop everywhere but once out it was solid 7m and Jester fun until... the OR chicken loop snaps landing a huge fast jump inside the breakwall. Total failure and immediate kite flag out and subsequent wrap up and switch to the Naish bar. Ok no damage and I’m back out on the 9m now slashing up the coast heading to Oak Pointe. Then... snap again the harness rope line breaks and the kite flies 100+ downwind. It was so powered it released the flagging leash line. Luckily Craig just down wind and grabbed kite just before it hit the shore. Still long swim into shore (thankfully onshore) through waves and then long walk back to CV beach park. Back out again lastly for 30+ winds on the 7 again and now on the Mako. Big waves now but sadly still choppy and a mess. Fun none the less to cap off 5+ hours on the water. Finally a great day on the small stuff.
