Kai Lenny crossed Lake Michigan

Postby grimace » Sun May 20, 2012 8:54 pm

Went up to Bailey's harbor today and Kai Lenny was up there along with the Red Bull gang. Apparently he crossed lake Michigan on a windsurfer in a little over 2 hours on Friday.

Pretty cool to see him and watch him kite/ windsurf. Still waiting for the articles to be posted on Red Bull USA

Thats sweet. but let's just make sure he's not saying he is the first to wind surf across the lake, done by a handful of local people back when windsurfing the stuff

What where the conditions like in Bailey's was it packed? Last time I was up there that park was starting to bust at the seams with over a dozen riders.

There were 8 of us out there on Sunday, I guess Friday and Saturdays were the busy days up there.

...Lake Michigan has seen its array of boats, jet skis, swimmers and sailors through the years, but this was the first time anyone has windsurfed from the west to east coast of Lake Michigan...

Awesome !!! but I wish Gatorade did these kind of promotions.

Red bull dehydrates you. Paying money to drink something that makes you thirstier and more dehydrated just does not make sense to me lol
