19.2 long miles on 83 degree heat with the dreaded SRM Guide RS brake fail. Sticky and stuck front brakes made me ditch it and we rode it rear only. JB killing it SingleSpeed leading the way. Great trail with about 1/2 the fun factor diving into the turns and drops. I'll be back with new brakes soon.

Great ride - my best ever and most enjoyable at Highland. Temps made it perfect - 65 is ideal here. I'm calling under 2 hours riding but 2:10 with stops. Feels good on a sunny cool Saturday after 2 weeks off. JB leading the way and remarkably killing it single speed style. Relive it here--> https://www.relive.cc/view/1176131085

What a great Labor Day and sailing spot. Arriving by 9:30 to 20-25 side on SSW winds and nearly 50 kiters doesn't get any better. Woo, huge curling 4-7' waves and perfect direction. 9m and strapless with a pretty tough shorebreak but after a slow start it was fun to challenge myself riding all the way in to pick and plow my way out. A couple 3-4' rushing white waters and 6' curling waves but I got through 90% of them. 9 worked perfectly up until wind dropped at 2. Crowds were only challenge to riding more in impact zone. Lots of guys riding twin tips and fearlessly airing it out in the main riding zone. But still highlights were riding a couple 10' bombers super close to breakwall. Clean glassy waves on this direction made it super good. Loved the steep faces to cut back on and really was loving it when sun spread light in the wind blown faces. All in all one of the best days and a must do next season. Boring relives below unless your into the same old big waves repeatedly ramping up, curling for you and driving you into shore.
Big 6+' waves where I'm buried at beginning of video....

Wet but still perfect for beating more rain. All the loops at full speed including riding up them! 12.7 miles of northern singletrack goodness. I wish this was marked all season long. Relive it below..

Tommy and Larry and Deb bring the winds! Didn't look good at all at 9am but by 11am at Bliss it was 18-22 SW and saying rig the 9m! Awesome drive worthy day in the sand dunes. Probably 40 miles of riding today if the gps had caught it all. Raced right off the bat to Sturgeon Shores beach for some wave fun but look out for those big rocks! Pulsing to 25 the 9 was spot on with the Duke. Great downie from there back and more in the last 2 sessions with only a big cloud closing it out by 6pm. Best Tuesday ever and perfect weather. Right place at right time so far -> 4/4 for trip plus Friday at MB is 5 days of kiting in a row. Feeling good riding this much.

2pm hits and it's looking quickly like 12m but the clouds roll in and now it's dying...as I go get the 14m rigged it lifts to 20+ and it's on! Way on, blowing 20-25 by 3:30 with one super tack from Roaring Brook to the breakwall with another huge crowd of onlookers. Great power and never felt too overpowered on the new 14. Little swell and couple of waves made long run home fun. Love this place the the thermal after on goodness. https://www.relive.cc/view/1122496937

Woo, small window but no way with 12. 14 rocks with exact same feel and more power. Great fun tacking up to breakwall before wind slacks and we race it back home. 18 miles of fun! Relive it here-> https://www.relive.cc/view/1121013695
