What a day...
Met the Madison crew (Jens and Ben) in Saint Joseph, the conditions were not right so we decided to drive a little further N to SH.
Arriving to the beach in SH and seeing 4 kites in the water made me smile, Matt, John and two other riders were getting it good on 9-10m.
We rigged and joined them, I was well juiced on my 7.5m, the waves were small but clean and kept building during the day.
After 1h or so it started to crank 35+, slightly side off and quite gusty: I decided to take a short break and watch Jens switching to his twin tip and boosting big, spectacular
It came back side on, dropped 10knts and with the sun showing up between the clouds and the waves building we got ready for the best part of the session.
We rode until dark, my legs were not responding to what I was asking them to do so I took few short breaks to stretch and enjoyed watching Jens and Ben ripping it with the sunset colors in the background, priceless seeing Jens making 5-7 turns on the same wave and then cranking upwind to do it again.
We celebrated the day with a brew and then stopped to get some Greek food on the way back.
