Monday 12/26

Merry Xmas everyone.

Windy tomorrow and (relatively) warm.

Anyone know if Lake Michigan is ice-free? How about Wolf?

Any webcams anyone knows of at either site?

Re: 9/29 Thursday

Anyone been to Casino beach lately? OK to ride there still? It gets dark too early now for me to get to Montrose after work.

Re: June 20th

Great day at Michigan City, I was glad to be able to get out. Did not feel like Lake Michigan. Warm, relatively flat water. Great crew.

We launch next to (downwind from) the pier. Lots of beachgoers (and boats) on a nice summer day though can make things a little hectic.

Any more details on this incident? I can't find anything online. Like Mike said, there's really no excuse for this.

Free old kites (not for beginners)

Free old kites (not for beginners) Hey so I have some older kites that I've kept around for "spares" but now just need to get rid of them. They still should all work fine. If there is an experienced kiter short on cash who wants to mess with these, they were great kites for me and all should fly fin...

Re: December 5th 2015 4th Annual Kiter Party

That's awesome you're doing this Matt. I can't make it this year but maybe next time.

A fun suggestion would be to have people bring files of their favorite kiting pics/GoPro videos, like I think the Madison guys do.

Re: Playpen this afternoon 4:45

Yeah I just talked to someone (not a kitesurfer) who said they're pretty sure they saw someone kiting on Tuesday at Ohio St Beach (=the playpen). Anyone know what the story is with this?

Re: Slingshot Doyle LFT board + 140 and 180 Kites $200

The accoutrements look nice, especially the ropes and poles.

Unfortunately you're not going to find anyone who would buy those from you, the technology changes quickly and that is outdated gear.

Re: Saturday 6/27 N winds

Yeah I bet Montrose will not be kiter friendly today with the concert.

I was going to try to go to Casino after work. Have not been there for a long time, hope it's still good to go .

Re: MONTROSE 2015

Hey thanks Paul and Mike for your efforts. If you ever need a hand with anything, I'd be willing to help. One simple thing that that would be great if at all possible would be a small sign at the launch. I imagine there would be some hoops to jump through with the Park District. I think this would d...

Saturday May 9

So there was somebody kiting way offshore probably midway between Montrose and downtown yesterday (Saturday) early afternoon. I was actually on the course at Waveland and my girlfriend's mom points out at the water in the distance and says "is that what you do?" It was hard to tell but it looked lik...

Nice Adrien. Looks warmer than here.

What was your GoPro set-up? Did you have it on a helmet then take that off to look back at yourself?

Re: Montrose Wind Meter Install

Hey Mike I think that would be awesome to have one of those at Montrose.

I know Mike Urban has left town but maybe he can chime in with park district contacts.

Otherwise Adrien or Paul may know someone?

Re: Off to the West Coast I go - Adrien

Hey Adrien, was always great to see you on the beach/water at the local spots over the years. Best of luck to you. If I head out to Socal some day to ride I'll hit you up for local knowledge.

Re: Clearing out - stuff for sale

Hey Maurice that sucks to hear. I know a lot of people turn to riding strapless surfboards to be able to move around to the best possible comfort position, but sounds like maybe that's not even an option for you. Hopefully down the road your body may somehow recover. You fixed a kite or two for me, ...
