Re: Foil me bitch - woo hoo

54M lines... damn. So do you find it either to use your 12m with long lines over a bigger kite and semi shorter lines (~30m)? Reason, I dont have nice sandy beaches or huge launch spots up here so for me to hot launch on land with long lines is tough.

Copper Harbor weekend

Great weekend up in Copper Harbor. 11 kiters made the trip up and enjoyed the conditions. Blue bird skies, deep snow, good winds and fresh pow on Saturday. I should have emphasized that the harbor and shoreline were frozen which only happen once or twice in a decade, this made for some crazy terrain...

Otherwise check out Superior, WI http://superiorkitesurfing.com/ and if you want to head south myself and few others are in the Green Bay / Lake Winnebago area http://...

Re: MHL Lift Hydrofoil

Do you have pricing, or does each foil need to be made specific to the rider? I'd be interested in a demo.

UP kiting

So my ventures up here over the past 3 weeks have been filled with plenty of kiting in some crazy locations, but this spot is probably one of the most unique. These shots were taken in the town of Gay, MI. This beach is an atv/ truck beach so you can drive anywhere you want. Also on this beach are h...

Interested in coming up to the Keweenaw?

This past weekend I finally made the move up Copper Harbor, MI. For anyone that doesn't know this place is windy all the time and with winter coming up, snowkiting up here is pretty spectacular.

If anyone is ever interested in coming up, let me know, conditions are always great!
