Saturday we go to Pontiac to sweat it out!

Fast and dry follow up at Ponto to River Bends last night. Another 10.3 with tires a little soft - dust bowl fun requiring a bike shower after. Sun and 88 degrees. Still fun being all fat.

It’s Friday night - let’s ride the Bender

2 hot loops at RB which was dry and fast - PR fast. 10.6 miles at 7pm with 90 degrees.

Friday Caseville North!

Oak Pointe Wave Downie fun Friday in Caseville

Up at 6:15am on water at 6:50am for Sun and 70 degrees - just me and Larry on 7's. Thank god we were staying 1000 ft from beach! NNE winds 20-30 were perfect to make a downwinder after beating up to the Pointe on the Duke. Big long waves with classic smooth spacing of 50-75' gives this place the feeling you're in Hawaii. Up to 6' curling down the line - truly a special spot let only KP can get once every year (if you're lucky enough to be there!). The ride back was incredible as it was finally heelside back into the waves on the port tack. This difference made the downie back that much better! Over 2 hours on first of 4 sessions probably over 50 Miles if the watch tracking hasn't died! Top wave days of all time and now I'm sold on the Caseville drive over the Lex option on a North day. Waves here take top billing.

Forgot the 3rd Ride!

Late again at Bloomer on Tuesday night for a fast Gwinning Loop before Caseville. Dry and quick.

Day after 4th works in Caseville

14m and Duke off the breakwall with a SW 15-20 worked as a thermal this afternoon. Sun and 86 degrees and I was only one out with packed beach and super warm 80 degree water. Good day with the big kite!!! Luckily got off the water 30 minutes before the North squall and rain hit.

Late Bloomer sweatfest!

I waited until 730 to hit Bloomer and it was still in the 90s! Overall great ride a little damp still in greasy from the prior days rain but an awesome ride nonetheless. On a Fat bike any line is a good line!

Winnit to Pin it

Lucky Sunday: 2 hour drive with 3 hour wait and scoring 3 good hours on the 14 and Duke in ENE 18-22 winds that stayed solid. Good wavos in the 1-2' range for a long upwinder for JB and I shredding the north Pinconning coast. Sun and 68 degrees made it all good after the wind filled in.

Stony when you can’t get out to kite!

Stony worked staying on the DH fun runs. Lots of rocks gave it an MQT feel. Do not want to crash here. Muggy hot even at 74 degrees at 7pm. First time here but I'll be back for more tech rides.

Almost 15 Miles with the Bald and Addison combined. Over 100 with 90% humidity but made it in before downpour. It's never windy when it's this hot!

HI-Lights from 7m fun yesterday.

Harsens Sun and Fun on the 7m Duking the channel face waves.

Love it. The 2018 Naish 12m Pivot Kite. Any year for that matter. Anyway got last hour in on the demo JB had and it's a winner. But before I got on that I got almost 45 miles in and four hours on the 7 m pit in the Duke. Epic 2-4' shore waves right in front of the slicks in the channel with the perfect direction of the west northwest wind blowing 20 to 30+. The Duke was the perfect choice to ride with the smaller kite. most people route on nine's and 12s but it worked. Temperatures in the mid-80s and the water was perfect for the Shorty wetsuit. Perch Dinner at Schoolhouse closes night and home by 11!

It’s Tuesday off to Bloomer

Ridiculous traffic at 5 turns trip to Stony into a Bloomer ride. Quick loop in and out. Let's hope we kite tomorrow!
