First thin tire ride at Pontiac. Outta shape!

19.3 miles in 2:15 on the rehabbed and newly forked Stumpy. Bike solid as a rock. Great big first ride with JB leading way on the new Carbon Niner. 52 degrees and dry fast trail. Good start here.

Crazy Tuesday at Metro. WS blast.

2 hours of cold WNW 15-45+ OP'd 4.7 WS at Metro. Just Silver Fox and Myself. 4:30 nuclear blast was huge 1/2 mile out. Not a great sailing session and no way to kite. First time out locally on the Jp/Np gear. I'll take it.

Day 5 Hatteras Ocean and Sound

Great start to day on the ocean waves by the Friso MI house on Thursday morning. ESE side shore 15-20 just enough to power out through the surf on a 12. Couple shoulder high scares toe side racing into the beach limited my shore break action to mostly outside chippy rollers. Fun and first in ocean with kite.

Next up the surfboard and the sound for almost 3 hours of smooth off shore butter. Lots of falls and jibes made but solidifies the surfboard for the lighter winds. Love u OBX.

Day 4 Hatteras delivers big time this time it's all North

Yes! 30's North all AM right in front of house, great day starting on Keith's 7 Vector and then onto Craigs 4.6 SuperCross WS gear. Last onto to my 9m Rebel with first the Mako then the Pit for an upwinder. Big blast day delivers right in our front yard where it's easy. Big day fun.

Day 3 Hatteras and it rocking SW all afternoon.

Woo. Perfect 12 day that the rain looked kill early but by 12:30 it was on! Great strapless day on everything. Space Pickle, TRex and finally perfection on the Pit. Everyone happily powered. Upwinder to KHK and lots of carving jibes ripping turns. Great classic SW right in front of Sounds Great.

Day 2 Hatteras starts light but evening sesh delivers.

3/3 I'd say. Light pulse at 5pm gives us an hour on the 12m. Sunny and 75 for a Monday on the island and nothing to complain about. Surfboard session again and we're building for the rest of the week.

Day 1 Hatteras Sandy Beach Bay Isabelle's Delivers 12m NE.

Woo. Fun day. 12m powered glory on the Mako for first half and last three hours on Pit surfboard. 18-22 NE side on winds, 65 and sunny. Loved it. Great day and riding. Watch out for sand bars and tri-fins!! Hamburgers on grill. Let's eat.

We're here - 19 hours later. Ok drive to Frisco!

Enough already. Let's go kite. Trailer is not making this trip so let's go to Frisco Campground for some 12-15 ENE and barely 12m. Good enough for surfboard and getting the Hatteras sea legs. Dinner at Captain Rolos epic mahi, flounder and tuna! Great first 1/2 day!!!

Stony starts 2015

We leave for Hatteras in 4 hours, let's go kite at Stony! Winds west Hindenburg to 40+. Keith and I got in an hour plus at this April only kiting site. 9m Rebel and it good enough to log it as sesh #1. Now let's drive for 19 hours....

Drying out at Stony but still Fat!

Still loving FatBoy fun factor in almost 20 miles at Stony. Back loop was super fast and remarkably dry. Got 3 short loops in at full speed then rode the park and the skills park. Thinking about Fat more and more full time and a Bluto fork! Maybe try Stumpy in 2 weeks... after Hatt!
