Naish 5'2" kitewave

Well the surfboard thing isn't for me. I must confess, I'm a full on twintip rider. The kitewave has to go. Great condition. I took off the straps and put a full deck pad on it. I still have the straps, but I'd say that the board rides better with them off. $200 and you can get yer surf on. Good boa...

Ocean Rodeo Drysuit - Pyro Lite

Hi eveyone, I am clearing out the garage and I am selling some kite gear. I have a medium Ocen Rodeo drysuit in excellent condition. I have used it maybe 5 times when it was really cold in the spring and fall. I prefer a 5/3 wetsuit now. I'm asking $250 for it but if you want to make a decent offer ...

Just got home from the gig in Saugatuck.
It's already windy NE 21-23kts.
The trees are rockin.
I can hear waves sitting on the porch here in the haven so it sounds like it's brewing already.

St Joe or SH...you pick...they both will get pretty good I think.

It COULD go this afternoon in the Haven but it will be quick and end before sunset. We call it the executive session. Hoping to see some signs around 3pm. 5pm looks the best then fading before 8pm. Not a very big window. Hoping for the el norte thermal, but she has been hit and miss this season. If ...

IVO, I'll put out the APB when it's looking good for Silver. You've got to check it. You'll trip out. I think Silver is overlooked because on a N, NE chicago riders seem to stay on the west side. For us we either do SH or SJ on a N, NE....sometimes SJ will be better and come up quicker on a N, NE th...

N, NE at Sliver is absolute heaven. I haven't been down to MI city yet on a big Westerly and from what I've been told it can get really heavy, however the wave at Silver is one of the cleanest, reforming, powerful waves I've ridden on Lake MI. Sort of like a mini San Carlos down near the chili bowl....

Sherriff, I'm not Cory, but I do spend alot of time at the point. Cory looked pretty happy yesterday. That session was healing for him. West came up too and scored the magic along with a few other chicago riders. LSP is magic on South Wind. Getting it good can be tricky though. A few degrees offshor...

I ride with a miniature gas powered circular saw so that when my first four knives don't work I always use that as a last resort.. I also keep an extra set of lines handy so when my nitro powered saw doesn't work, I can cut my lines with another set of lines.. you can never be too prepared.. I have...

HATTERAS FOR SURE. This is a tough question. Do you want to ride or have more family time I guess you should ask. If you want to ride alot go to Hatteras or HR. If you want more family time then Tawas...it's just not as frequently windy in MI than the other two areas...as both are considered high wi...

Wow smpl, You seem to be an awesome rider. Do your kites have magnetic fields to control the kite instead of lines as I hear that you are sick of tangles? It must be pretty simple to get above your kite during kite loops as they are filled with hydrogen? A pro told me on this forum that there is suc...

SH works very well on the following wind directions.

N - ideal
SW - ideal
NW - ok but kinda messy

S is offshore gusty and not fun...go to oval beach or furtur north.

anything east...is a no go.
