Re: MONTROSE IKO CERTIFICATION DAY?!

Thanks Mike, sounds great! There's been a lot of interest in IKO certifications so there will definitely be an event. I totally agree about the self-rescue situation. This year, we'll do our self-rescue demonstration on the beach. That way, there is no danger to the public and I can also see/supervi...

Re: Congrats- New Certifications at Montrose!

Just saw this. It was a great day at Montrose and all the newly certified riders did a great job and showed a lot of respect for the regulations. Some of the riders that were certified were students of mine from the beginning. That was very rewarding for me as an instructor and a cool feeling to see...

Tawas Magic!

We had another magical time at Tawas this year! The group was bigger and friendlier than ever. Since folks are asking how it went, I'm taking the liberty of copying the emails that have been going around: Yes, Tawas was awesome as always. And while the wind magic was a little off given the seemingly...

Re: MC Mon 25th

We'll do an IKO certification day tomorrow at Montrose Beach since this will be best with people's work schedules. I'll plan on being there about 3pm until sunset. I'm flexible so please let me know if you'd like to schedule an earlier time. Please see me before you begin kiting to register for the ...

Hello Kiters! Anyone interested in doing their IKO Certification on Monday 6/25? Thinking either Waukegan or Montrose would be best. Montrose may be more convenient, especially on a weekday, but the wind will be onshore there. If you are interested please let me know your availability and schedule a...

Re: TAWAS TIME!!! June 7-11th

Looks like it's going to be on this weekend! We look for warm sunny conditions and any Southerly direction. I don't look at wind since it's not a reliable indicator for the thermals. This is what I'm looking at, pretty basic but it's worked for me in the past: http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/M...
