I was the only guy out there wondering where everybody went....until.... four kites show up out of nowhere on the North side of the pier and who is it!? South Haven downwinder crew of course! Thanks West, John, and the whole crew for the brews and pizza and can't wait to join ya one day on one of those downwinders..

Yes, it was me. I was also at Miller initially but didn't see a single trace of any kiting activity, not a bag, not a pump... and then I saw 2 kites in the air upwind so I thought you guys were on Lake Street. Drove there, and realized you're even more upwind... So I decided to stay where I was.

Two days in a row on a 7m. - can't beat that. (pretty unusual to have a 30 kt. S. wind immediately following 30 kt. N.)
Came around the jetty at St Joe to find the wind a bit more side-on (go figure) and smooth waves, great to see a lone kiter just having a blast......pizza and pops in the parking lot
The problem isn't with an individual kiters ability its when a rookie comes out and sees another kite so thinks it must be ok... then ends up in the pier.
Pretty typical actually. That's how we get these big winds.
