Re: have 60 acre wheat field in Elkhorn

Hey NordicNorm,

Is this field an option this winter - 2011 - once it snows?

Snowkiting the lakes is awesome, but it will be a while before there's enough ice.

Re: TAWAS ADVENTURE!!! JULY 13-18

Well, it looked like it might be a bust... It started out as a gorgeous day at the beach, 80 degrees, light breeze, some trainer kites up and lots instruction (safety, kite setup, etc. going on. Water so warm no one even considered a wetsuit. Frisbee, nerf football, skim boards, and some weird doubl...

Re: Tawas City 24/25/26 Jun

Our Tawas trip is officially canceled... forecast is, well, ain't enough wind to kite

We're gonna' do a day trip to South Haven instead, looks good there all day.

Tawas dudes - thanks for the advice, we'll try the trip again later this summer.

I'd hate to drive out there and have doldrums, hate to stay...

Anyone got something decent / used; bar in the 50-55 cm range?
