7 am and......blowing 29 to 35 at Kenosha.......gonna be EPIC today.....the kind of day you dream about!!

Fixed my 7m last night, should be riding it all day long. Bring your small kites to the beach, your warm gear, and the proper perspective....this ain't your MAMA's Lake Michigan we are talking about. Use Caution, and know when to say when!!!!

On a due North be very careful if going out at Waukegan. Being pulled into the jetty or going around the jetty will be a far different ball game today. Kite safe!!!

Just threw up the 6m Switchblade at Montrose. Could not hold it down with bindings. So frustrated.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Bonkers! Have not seen the The Big Lake pounding like that in awhile. Good thing I got a 5m recently, cause it came in handy today.

Had about 2 hours of riding, massive breaking waves out there.

Called it quits while i was still ahead (alive). Gusts were puncher then Kimbo's uppercut.

Got it handed to me today....popped a bladder in my 7m before going out at Zion this mornin'......knew I was in for it when I saw Steve come in on his 9m REV saying how damn windy it was.....

Rode my 9m Caution, and was lit beyond......great waves, pouding the shoreline, barrelling!!!!!!!! Held it down for as long as I could, then greg and I headed to Casino...

Was like expected....Scottie G ripping as we pulled up. Waves were smooth, and the wind was hammering. Epic for a bit, with rainbows and glassy waves, lining up nice.....then it turned more NOrth and went ballistic....blew us off the wqter....

Gotta respect the BIG LAKE....and know when to say when.


Maybe tmrw!!! :) Jens and Artem were boosting BIG at Z!!!! awesome
