MONTROSE 2015

The Chicago beach season (lifeguards), Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, is upon us and Montrose once again is available to us for kiting. There have been numerous threads over the years regarding the rules, including the 2014 message below this one, which can be reviewed in depth. The...

Re: Montrose 2014.

Hi Vince? Yes, an equivalent PASA card works. It seems they faded into the sunset recently so we usually just talk about IKO. They were always very poor with subsequent communications and service so make sure you get everything squared away in person. Contact me or Adrien at some point about a strea...

Re: Montrose 2014.

Tom, I appreciate your shot at speaking up for the other side but in your usual fashion on posts, you do more to provoke or goad further comment than be constructive. As someone with a streamer I find it rather disingenuous for you to voice any support. Sensationalizing the board confiscation into a...

Re: Montrose 2014.

RULE: IKO Card AND Streamer required to ride at Montrose. PERIOD Montrose is a regulated beach monitored by lifeguards, Chicago Park District AND designated kitesurfers, Paul, Adrien and Mike Urban. Every time Spring rolls around we inevitably have to deal with this issue and frankly, after 10 years...

Re: Uncertified rider sneaking out at Montrose... 7/1

Another uncertified (no streamer) rider showed up later with a Cabrinha Switchblade (white/green trim) and I'm wondering if it was the same guy at the bird fence who walked back and rekited. Yow were all dressed for winter riding, already a dead giveaway - hoodie, gloves, booties - sunglasses and a ...

Re: Left DaKine harness at Wolf 5/21

I have it!! Forgot I grabbed it.
It was by my car on sidewalk next to parking lot but completely forgot about it. I was just looking here because of yesterday's losses at wolf.

Re: and DAy 3 closes at wolf

I saw the stuff sitting there when I packed up and left during the rain but assumed it was Manni's, or someone by their car. If it was just one item it may have struck me to think it was left behind, but that much gear sitting around, and still at least one rider there.... it never struck me that so...

Re: Casino

Nice pics! You get scary close. If I had known you do sequentials I would busted out a few moves! To the KOOK who refused to heed Blaise's warnings not to go out with a 13 METER, saying you'd just "edge harder", who then tried to self launch after I refused to launch you, who then proceeded to self ...

Re: Tuesday 10/9/12

FYI - Wolf is cold already. Yesterday needed full suit, booties, hood and ...debatable on the gloves. Wolf always chills faster than the big lake in the Fall. And that just makes it gustier than usual because it messes with air flow. Yesterday was one of the gustiest days ever until around 4:30 when...

Re: 10/4/12 - Thursday in west Michigan

had a pretty good late afternoon session at Wolf after the party starting breaking up when winds started decreasing. (missed the stuff mentioned above) ended up being the lone rider, winds picked up again and was working on some SBends when this happened to my leash..... http://i107.photobucket.com/...
