Sat. Oct. 22 Fall into Island Lake

14+ miles of perfect sunny 60 degree riding at Island Lake SP. Only about 30% leave coverage so things aren't too slippery yet. New Ski Tracks Lite here testing the GPS for this winters boarding sessions. Cool App.

Mon. Oct. 18 More at Metro!

Alright now! 3 out of 4 days on the new 4.7 Altas. Metro solid for 20-30++ SW all afternoon with sun and 60 degrees. The last 2 hours we could have been on the 4.2 if I had the time to change it. Great fun throwing down multiple carving 360's and near planing quick tacks. Also nice wave action off the Metro shoal too. Fun day of fall sailing.

Sat. Oct. 15 Harsens goes off the charts!

Well.... worth the drive! watched for nearly 2 hours in the morning at both Metro and BL with literally nothing all. While a gusty due West that was reading 40 at 9 am at the Bouy it was time to try Harsens Island. Great decision as the winds were straight into the waist deep launch to 45k in the gusts. 3.7 overpowered the whole time with ramps galore for riding the jumping and even some solid sun through it all. JB, Fox and I representing the windsurfers while the rest were the small 6-9m kites. A standout day for the records - windiest day I have had on LSC and I thought for a moment there we were in Haterass.

Fri. Oct. 15, Metro Fall Sailing Begins

Nice timing for the new 5.6 Combat and the 107, except it started to nuke as soon as I hit the water. Oh well back to rig the new 4.7 Atlas (on a 370) and 85 ProEd. 15-30 all day due west with 2-3 ft. swell. Super happy with the sails and the conditions although it got gusty and up and down at the end. 4+ hours of solid sailing. More on tap for tomorrow with gales on the way.
