Remember that it is a hot day on the weekend.....so if heading to Michigan, use your manners.

Sheriff Paul will be waiting in St. Joe, so be respectful and kite safely. Stay out of the swim area, and away from beach goers. 8)

Good luck and have fun!!!

Tiscornia today...

Whew, violent storm!

Got a short session with IVO, and John about a half hour after the storm passed. While we were out kiting, the wind switched sideoff and dropped which made for an interesting ride in.

Met Paul today keeping the peace @ the beach. Good job Paul!

More like an interesting swim, for me. I waited it out a couple of more hours with the family on the empty beach until it was time to pack up and get the kids home. My sacrifice worked. As we were getting our things together the wind picked up and turned sideon; around 7pm cst. Paul, Andy, Ivo and Slavi hit the water for a postcard session. Sorry boys, no camera....
