Michigan snowkiting

Postby lebeda12345 » Fri Jan 21, 2011 9:08 pm

Last week we took advantage of snow lake effect on Michigan side. 3' of fresh snow around Michigan city. Isn't to much snow on beach due high wind, but it was FUN. There is a short video.

Nice video; looks like a great time.

I especially like the 'down the beach' shot kiting right against the first sand dune.

We'll have to drive over from NE IL and kite with you sometime.

Great idea hitting the beach and the dunes. After riding frozen lakes exclusively we have been making our way into the farm fields and searching for a little more terrain, so much more fun.. I bet those dunes could serve up some serious fun once the snow is stuck. Way to go.

What size was the FS? Is it a Psycho 2?

Thanks for comments.
First question - I think it's Psycho 3. I am not sure I am the yellow jacket guy with switchblade.
Second question - I am using Pinnacle 14 It's good program simple to operate.
