Re: The hottest products this spring

I have to put in a couple percent here from my observations in Hatteras this Spring. That foilboard system is so smart. 3 masts to accelerate learning will really speed things up. I have pals who have been trying and trying (and quitting) to get foiling on their $2000 set ups. Does Slingshot have th...

Re: Cape Hatteras 2016 Spring trip - a few openings.

Bob,
Are there any slots available for the first week?
I leave tomorrow for a regatta in Annapolis until Sunday. I am scheduled to teach a captain's license class down in Miami, but it might not happen.
The car is packed with gear. Now I just have to find a destination.

Re: BROKITE 2016...the Journey Continues!!!

This is great. I haven't been on the forum in a coon's age.
But since I just threw the Zero Gravity 137 in the car, I got all pumped.
Then I see this. Awesome. Great pics.

Re: Carpe Ventus: Mentorship thru Sailing, Kiting, Windsurfi

Sounds like a great program that should thrive in Chicago.
I ran a tall ship at-youth program for 3 years in Michigan and might be able to help out.
PM'd my phone number.

Lake Michigan kiter in iksurfmag

Well, there was a little bit of a mix-up, but we got a little love in iksurfmag. Ivo took some pics of West and me on Halloween. They ran one of West but listed me as the rider. Alas, he didn't get the photo of the month. That went to a guy from Corpus. Big day. Very fun. http://www.iksurfmag.com/is...

We have also done a few other projects. Recently, we have had a bunch of Hobie 16 stuff donated, and a Newick trimaran, wh...

Re: Lake Michigan sickeness

Yesterday, I went to Urgent Care because I finally started coughing up blood. Bacteria infection after 4 big kite days in a little over a week. Fever, stiff neck, chills, sore throat, diarrhea - all came and went. However, the sniffle and hacking cough hadn't let up for 2 weeks. At Urgent Care, I su...

Lots of good info here. While I am not too interested in foilboarding, I just appreciate the depth of info shared here. Reminding me of old days!
