Snowkiting Saturday 5

Postby Dutchkiteboarder » Thu Feb 03, 2011 12:15 pm

Heading out to Grass Lake, wind conditions around 12 13 mph. Hopefully a little more since the lake is a wide open area. Planning to leave around 8.30 9.00 am. Hope to see some of you out there

I think Saturday is going to be a bust - 8 mph with 10-12 gusts

(I type, from my work computer, as I watch an nice, sunny, windy Friday afternoon go by)

snowboarding perhaps?

Argh, I finally got some free time to kite and this is how i am repaid...no wind!!! I might make the trek anyway and put up the speed2.

Where do people usually launch from?
