Saturday I'll be rippin @ MC.
My friend is also comming to shoot all of us. He was planning to to that all season long, and finally got a nice lense and filter to do so. MC will be perfect, since he could get on the jetty and take some pictures from there. Taking pictures from shore also wont be a problem, since it's 200MM lense. Hopefully we all gonna have a nice photosession and some nice new pictures to update our facebooks or show to grandma. See you all there!

Looking forward to a fun day hanging out with lots of kite pals! Due to the high winds, waves and current I cancelled lessons tomorrow. Instead, I invited all students to come hang out with us at the beach and to Mike's afterwards for some oven fired pizza, yum!!!

Mike and I will either be at Lake St Beach or Michigan city tomorrow depending on which way the wind blows exactly. We'll post in the morning about which one it will be.

Here are the links to both of those locations:

Lake St Beach:

Michigan City:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=41.727907 ... src=0&z=15

Hopefully see everyone at Mike's later on! Planning on starting around 6ish there. Please bring whatever you would like to drink and text Mike at 708-341-0003 to RSVP and for his address.

Thanks so much and hopefully see you soon!

Happy Kiting!

Let's just hope for a repeat of today. Epic day at MC although it was easy to find yourself over your head - in every meaning of the word.
West will be a movie star - again - I saw at least 5 people filming his super-smooth moves in 15-footers close to the pier. I wish someone was there earlier when Artem was doing his bumble bee tricks - just hanging in the air, with no intention to land. Wow.
At least 15 kites in the air most of the time, more on the beach.
P.S.
I owe so much brew to guys who got my board - twice - that I might be better off buying a brewery

Yo sheriff... I will be up there soon enough. Wife coming into town tomorrow night and I really need to be here. Mich City today was ok. Not epic, but good. Gusty as hell and sloppy waves. 20 to 25 footers up there is going to be unreal. Get it good, take lots of pics, and be safe.

Whats up my fellow kite riders! Great session today at Miller! Tomorrow should be just as Awesome!

If anyone needs a ride Saturday morning I have a spot for one, I have a pick-up so bring all the toys you want.

Also if anyone wants to do a down winder the truck is perfect for a shuttle back with all the wet gear and wet bodies.

I live just 2 min west of O'hare in Wood Dale, you can give me a call at any time or reply here. I would like to go back to Miller but are willing to go further to MC or beyond, all I ask is for some gas money for the ride, beer and food is a plus. the latest i would like to leave is 12-1pm, so the earlier the better (9-10 give or take an hour).

Ill hear from you or ill, See you out there!

Adrien, Lake is the next beach west of Miller & the Partheon. Take Lake street straight N until it ends. Getting some work done then will check the Gary meter again before I leave. Hope to see ya there! Come on back to my place tonight for some fire oven pizza!

... that' goes for everyone else too!!
