Time to ride the Home Track

20.3 miles in 1:45 to Bloomer which is pretty rad in the second half. Rim ride and steep channels. One mistake clipped in... Long way home. This place takes the cake for steeps and Utah like riding.

Pontiac is dry, lets ride!

10.6 miles in 56 minutes following John B for last half. Little wet but fast and gets the job done when there's little time to ride. Next time it's Highland.

Grinding Holly in Cool September

1:49 hours for 15.5 miles. Cutting it up on this trail which is still sandy, tough and has everything including knuckle breakers complementing the wide 29er bars. Good afternoon ride second only to Highland.

The waiting lame in Lexington

Ok got in solid overpowered 5.4 for 1.5hrs after 4 hours of mist and missed 20-25 North forecast. Rain continuously appearing only over South Huron coast for the whole morning only to clear after 1pm. Had 4 huge jumps and couple nice waves but water was choppy and steep. Worth the drive and day off - just barely. Ill take though.

2 sport Lex classic. Sun, 70 and NE winds

On water before 8am - epic 3-6ft. smooth curling defined waves. Tons of East made it down the coast underpowered but excellent jumping and wave riding. Had first hour all alone with sun coming out of marine layer which disappeared by 11am with declining breeze. Time for kiting in waves! Light on inside but solid out. Got 3 hours in with no depower. Great day temps, sun, winds and great wave action. Kite saved day since I got nothing bigger than 5.4!

Oh by Gosh Oh Holly

iPhone dead and rain clouds split for a great 15.5 miles in 1:50 at Holly Grubbers. Tons of sand and 4 bar hits on trees but no damage with the sit at 3/4 setting. Really a good ride at 70 degrees and cool 100% humidity.

Case closed! Caseville works for the NW blow.

Scored a great 4 hour sesh at Caseville Co. Park on Labor Day. Nice building NW winds to 25 by 5pm and great shallow sandy shoreline riding with little waves and building swell. Ideal spot even with near onshore conditions. 12m perfect kiting and even had to depower for the first time. Had some excellent sliding speed turns too with the kite down in the power zone. My best outing so far and seeing the wave potential for the soon arriving directional. Lastly, Craig and scored private beer tasting at Scott's new venture Thumb Brewery, opening next year. Great IPA, Stout and Porter! 14 hr. day out before 8am and home at 10pm.
