A Rare Summer Surf on the Great Lakes

A big North front came into the region. It gave us a nice break from the hot humid temperatures. It also happened to deliver us a few hours of joy on Lake Huron. The crew headed out for an evening paddle. We were out there for a good 3-4 hours. It is hard to stop when we don’t get waves that often in the summer.

Everyone caught their share of fun waves. The wind started to die out just before sunset and the waves started to glass off a bit. The size started to drop but not before it was dark. We topped the night off with a dinner and called it a day!

Fall Kite Mission to Canada

We headed out early to Canada. It was cold and rainy on our drive. As we were driving onto the beach, the clouds broke to let in some gorgeous morning light against the stormy day.

The wind was cranking and I wound up riding my 7m Envy on short line really really powered. The waves never quite got to the usual size we were expecting, but I still had a blast. I took out the foil for a few tacks and took some good beatings.

We then packed up and headed back to the states and drove a little north to surf. As we arrived it looked FLAT. But we found a small wave in a little cove and wound up surfing for over two hours.

Mid-Summer Lexington Kiteboard Session

It was an early drive to the East coast of Michigan. The wind was blowing all night and we were hoping for a solid wave day. We arrived to find some solid waist high waves, but not really what we were expecting. We rigged up and and sessions at Lexington for a few hours and then met up with some of the crew for a downwinder. There were some great sections of waves during the 10+ mile session. We ended the day with a quick wake and SUP session.
