if it is going to blow in the morning we are thinking about going to Michigan site, but if you are going to Wolf maybe we can meet you there.

I was thinking St. Joe/Toscornia, leaving around 6 am from Chicago. If you don't mind, I'll give you guys a call so maybe we end up in the same place

At Weko now, heading to warren now. Wind might be picking up a bit...or just wishful thinking. Thinking about just renting a SUP.

Early Birds...

Postby xwindsurf » Fri Jul 23, 2010 3:55 pm

Whoever made it to St. Joe by 6 or 7 am showed a lot of foresight... By 10:30, it wasn't enough for a 14 m...

Ripping in St Joe early......was running a bit behind due to a blowout near New Buffalo.

It was cranking good though when I got there bout 9 30.....headed downwind to carve up some waves and cruise the coastline. Went about 8 miles or so, then hitched back to the beach. Good times!!!!!!!!! 8)

Thanks Ivo

Postby xwindsurf » Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:57 pm

Yeah... I can even body-drag upwind like a pro now... Just hoping one day I won't need these skills so often... But the freaking kite deflated and there wasn't much I could do...
Thanks, Ivo, for taking my board with you - it helped
