what a great birthday

Postby jensmadwind » Mon Aug 13, 2012 8:16 am

I turned 33 on saturday. Mother nature and a great crew made sure 32 went out with a bang in Sheboygan on Friday and welcomed in 33 with a great session on my home turf.

My wife took the pictures, the last one from out at the begining of the pier. While she was watching the kiters to the south she wittnessed quite a fine example of lack of common sence to the north.

These 3 were rescued but no more than an hour after this scenario played out 3 other people walked out there, got washed off and two of them were not found.

Happy B-day Jens. It was mine on Friday and unfortunately I had other plans and didn't kite, glad to see you got after it good.

Thank you for all the birthday well wishing! Friends, family, kiting and a meteor shower all added to a great weekend.

Outstanding shots and riding Jens at two of my favorite spots. Very stoked to see you got it so good, I would have been riding and celebrating with ya for sure if not out West. I have yet to get a good NW at Rock Island, some of the best slicks in the state. Loving the shots, your level of riding and the fish boil.

Sucks about the two guys from sheboygan, I had no idea a number of people got washed off,crazy.

Let's hit some big wind some place before summers over.....
