Cape Hatteras finally saw a swell grace our shores with its presence on Sunday. We were up at dawn to start the day. The waves were head to over head high and barreling like it only does in the Outer Banks. It was non-stop fun until the sun went down. Update: Featured in: – ESPN […]
Yesterday was the grand opening of the Ann Arbor Skatepark. Following the build of the park through photos updates for the last year, it was so great to see everyone having a good time and shredding. All-in-all, it was an amazing day to celebrate this great asset for the Community.
We again headed down to S-Turns at High Tide to see what the damage was like. The road was completely covered in sand and water. The water was rushing over the dunes and flooding the street. We again headed to the Serendipity, the house from the movie, “Nights in Rodanthe“. I took a few more […]
Today, I did two of the best sound side-down winders in cape hatteras. The Outer Banks are one of the best places I know of to do kiteboarding downwinders. Here are a list of what I think are the best downwinders in Cape Hatteras, NC. 1. REAL to New Inlet (Sound Side) 2. Ranger Station […]
Had a such a great time wakeboarding on the 4th. I met up with the Walsh/Droste/Thane crew for a fun session. Hunter was just destroying it. It was really fun to watch him ride. We wakeboarded for a few pulls and then wakesurfed for a bit after that. Always a good way to start the […]
On the way North, we drove through the wreckage left by an ice storm. There was .25-.5 inches of ice on everything! As the temps warmed, chucks of ice broke off and crashed to the ground. We explored for a little while before moving on. It was amazing and surreal. Here is some of what […]
The first Atomic Con Conference was a great time. We had two days of talks and in the evenings we enjoyed the rare time we all get together. The talks were informative, some were extremely technical, while others were fun and useful.
We had a great time at the 2014 King of the Great Lakes. This year saw wind and waves. We had riders in from all over the Great Lakes, NC, CA, OR, FL and more. Everyone had a great time riding and checking out all the new 2015 Kiteboarding gear.
Mel ran in the 2014 Run Woodstock in Pinckney, Michigan. It was a really fun scene. We arrived before the sun was up to see the ultra-marathon runners who were still trucking from the day before. They offered races from 100 miles to a 5k. The vibe was great from the runners everyone seemed to […]
Today was pretty much one of the best surf days I’ve had on the Great Lakes. The forecast was calling for SSW winds 20-30. There was a large storm cell brewing over southern Lake Michigan which looked like it would stay just south of Muskegon. Amer, Edgar and I packed up the car and headed […]
We had a great time at Lauren and Sam’s shower last week. It was great to get the families together to celebrate the upcoming day. A big thanks to all the hostesses for such a great party. See more photos here [dropbox link]
A few of the guys meet up in Charlotte, Michigan for a morning skate. The park was really fun! The layout took a while to get use to. The cement was a lot less smooth than the Ann Arbor park. That made falling a bad idea as your pads wouldn’t slide as well. A few […]
We were given an unexpected mid-summer swell on Wednesday. Mel and I hit the road to South Haven. Though it was blowing 20 knots, we arrived to a rather calm Lake Michigan. The wind increased though out the day and shifting more NW than the NNE that it was when we arrived. This caused the […]
Mel and I had a blast at Layne and Zach’s wedding. It was a beautiful weekend up north celebrating such a great couple. The reception site was gorgeous and surrounded by a cherry orchard. It was clear Layne and Zach had the best day ever. Congrats you two!
