Blooming July 4th

Quick looper with some steeps in the jump sections. Almost 10 miles in little over an hour. 80 and sun with no humidity... and no one on the trail!

Saturday's Is. Lake fast and dry.

13+ miles in 1:10. Sunny and 67 degrees near perfection. Just got to clear out the hikers on the trail. Always feel good at speed here. 15psi and still soft pillowy ride.

Lexington with bit of West but 9m and waves

9m solid for sure but only if you could fly the kite the first 500 feet out. NNW 20-30++ with 55 degrees and light clouds. It never went full north or got sunny but still had the biggest steepest longest wave ride ever. Down the line fun and classic big waves into the far bowl. Craig and I sharing waves and turns for few hours. Second session scrapped when I couldn't get back out. Not a spot you want to have a problem with offshore winds! Look forward to getting back here with some east in it.

Highland so exhausting it's hard to type this.

Sunny and 83 degrees started out great thru A to B to C but...D. Totally ran out of gas. 43 minutes in it. Worst sectional I think I've ever done. Lots of breaks and stops. Happy to get out when it was done. Steak and beer dinner and lots of Alleve. Highland wins again.

More Caseville highlights -thanks Bob. Great eaves after 5pm.

Mem W-End Addy double looper

So good thought it would be wet but it was mostly dry Addison. 14.8 miles in 2 quick clean loops. Great Saturday afternoon ride. Want a lot more of this!  Bombing speed sections with zero braking.

Caseville - worthy of drive.

70's and Sun plus 35 kiters all up for Memorable Memorial Kitefest. Starting on the 12 with 15-20 out of the SSW quickly became 20+ WSW and moving to the 9m with a small hole on the tip of the 12 when it buckled and the bridle wrapped on the wingtip. Great wave and swell and plenty of fun. Off the glassy breakwall. Plus Dan in town for a day gun by me a chance to test the new North Whip 5'5" CSC. Great MPD shape that is huge in volume. Turned great and hg ad tons of top end speed. Loved to try the smaller ones! On water at 11:30 off at 5:30 with final 3+ hours on the 9m and final hour on Mako. Great day with big crew on water. Worthy of the long drive.

Bloomer before the rain weeknite.

Quick speedy loop at Bloomer before the lite rains hit. 8.1 miles in an hour. Legs in mid season shape - could have done another if not for the wetness.

Metro Sun and gusty South.

Got on water by 3:30 to up and down 15-30 out of south. 9m and Duke worked well when it was steady with lots of great wave swell with the now deep LSC waters. 88 and sunny worked well with crowded skies out in front of the launch. Snuck back in about 5:30 when it started to drop. Waited around and derigged at 7pm and of course it picked up! Rigged the 12m and when out at 7:45 for another more steady session of 15-25 with a nice sunset. Great wave day just need some more steady winds.

New Torn Shirt is reborn and Murray Lake still lonnggggg

Over 2 hours and almost 20 miles this place is basically Highland with speed and flow. New bermed turns and tons of super steep ups packed with speed where you want it. Really nice wide design and Colorado feel for the first 5 miles. ML is still really endless looping back and forth for final 4 miles. Like to hit this one multiple times in these sunny 60 degree days.

Bloomer Perfect 57 Degrees Dry Trial at 13 PSI

Quick 8.5 mile fast ride late - 6:45pm on trail. Close by easy drive reward of dry in-shape singletrack even after all the rain. Sun and cool leg workout. I'll be back for more late rides here.

Sunday Double Sunday.

Perfect sunny dry (after 2 days rain) riding at 55 degrees. Two-fer afternoon. First at Island Lake and then Maybury for almost 22 miles. Loving the Surly tires at a hard 15psi. These monsters work over everything. Spring riding season now in high gear. Let's go.

HI winds rock with 6-7m afternoon

Solid 3 hours of SW. Got on water just after 3:30 with winds lulling in mid twenties but rigged 7m with Duke and got lucky - it kept picking up. Just Craig Tom Keith and I. I was last guy out so it was awesome final hour having the bay to myself with winds going to 40 and I never touched the depower. Cool 57 degrees and overcast was the majority conditions but there was about 15 minutes of sun while the whole bay lit up. Off water at 6:30 and while I was leaving at 7 winds kicked to nuclear touching 50. Great wave craving and a multiple magical aired out strapless floater jumps.

Monday Messy Metro Nukes to Nothing

Full depower then no depower with SSW Winds 7-35+. No steady blow today. Overcast for most part with clouds playing games with holes and then streaks of nuclear winds. 12m to start with bouncy Duke. Then to Mako until 12 got scary. Then best part was 7m to myself with some nice tall wave action right up front until that was underpowered. Not a great day but had a few moments-and JB's out of a tree!

Belle River comes Alive on NNE

4 hours plus on the Duke and 12. Great waves the final hour with full depower. Lots of sailors out but I had the setup for 15-22. Great day at 55 degrees and bone dry in the Boost. Worthy of the border crossing.

Ponto is fast but new PR

Thought I broke an hour for sure, but... still loved 63 degrees of sun - dry and fast. Love these 4.8 Surlys grip and cushion even blown up hard.

Back at it on the Fat-Ti at Bloomer

Great 14 miles at Bloomer after 3 weeks of riding. Mostly all dry and fast the 64 degrees and light until 8pm. Great to be back on the Lou and Buds.

Hatteras OBX Trip Finale 2017

Day 7: 7/7 sailing everyday! Friday 12m and Duke from 1-2:30 with NE/ENE 15. Some fun racing up and down but nothing like yesterday with downwinder. Sun and 73. Great trip - best yet - warmer and windier than all the forecasts. Got believe that the thermals in afternoon delivered. Great Grouper dinner with the boys from Liquid Rush. Next year hopefully we are in Avon!
