Will be at Michigan City Saturday. Hoping conditions will be suitable to teach a student body dragging. Looking forward to a little sunshine!

Myself and IVO are in MC, it's side off and barely rideable: we'll wait for the wind to switch more W.

we had really good time on Wolf lake.
Again meter are not showing anything what was really going on.
I started on 13.5 at the morning, but made it as far as the edge of the water(one more post is coming :evil: ).
Peter was cruising on 12 and i went on 9.5. We were overpower most of the day, at time i was lifted out of the water on completely depowered kite.
At afternoon it got so strong that i was thinking about 7m but we went to miller hopping for less gust.
Miller was offshore but flat and i was riding for 30 min before my 9.5 was not enough.
