I like waves. 1. SH - my home break , great people, great conditions on either side of the jetty. North wind rules for SH as does SW. Great kite shop right in town with a super cool team of outgoing, generous, unconditional loving riders. Big beach. No Ego...leave that crap somewhere else....like at...

IF you are using a roof top rack ALWAYS remember to CLOSE THE BOX. One fine windy gorge day I had a packing frenzy going on at camp to get down to the Hatchery....threw everything in the roof box, got the lunch, water, barley pops, and funny cigarettes ready to go for the epic full day of riding. KI...

Ahhhhhh the Gorge.....my home away from home. I've spent many summers in the tent there on my ol poleboards. Wind Tight pressure gradients are what you are looking for to get the good ol west winds a smokin. Best advice I can give on getting good sessions in the gorge is...... ALWAYS GO EAST OF THE ...

Amen....it does seem to be getting back to normal....I guess the squeeky wheel gets the grease?

Oh buddies...I'm feeling ya! Not many for me and I even live on the lake in SH in the summertime. I got a few great morning SW sessions from 8am to 11am and then it does it's typical poop out for the rest of the day. Late April and early May were by far the best this season so far. Havent even been ...

Ludacris price tag.....$750.00 give or take? It does look cool for snowkiting and is very functional for that if in the event you go in the drink you are covered. Not too sure about water riding. Hood looks like it could become a bucket if you got worked really good. It looks great dry, but when wet...

Oh Dude....those hurt SO bad.
I used to install docks and boat lifts in inland lakes when I was a young lad and those zeebs would slice thru neoprene and skin like hot knife thru butter.

Ouch again.....how many cuts...25 plus?

I second what Cory reccomends. Outer beaches is the BEST place to rent from....Hatteras Island realty is good too , but very very over priced with lots of "conditions and fees" that you are accountable for. deposits...blah blah whatever.... Outer beaches you simply pay for the week and you are done....

Now THAT was a KILLER way to do a Michigan tour! Jens what a great surprise to get the call that you were in MI. Glad we got to party a bit and do some legit riding in SJ. Now that you have seen the potential of SJ on a NE, just imagine being lit on a 9m with even larger, cleaner waves. Jens had a f...

Cool topic Bob, Here on the MI side I see lots of lessons going down, but not to many new faces on the beach. There are several new riders added each year, but i think that most who take the lessons may find out that kiting isn't what they thought it to be and have now tried other things. My friends...
