"Try Port Sanilac on South side of jetty.  Good spot for Northeast winds. Northwest winds cross bridge into Canada and go to Kettle Point.  Indians charge $8 for day.  Park on beach just like Daytona.  You don't need 4x4.…"

Apologies if you already saw this posted on the DAWG Facebook page....While in Hatteras last week, Glen tried my board and rig to see if he should rig up. He came back asking what the vibration was. I hadn’t noticed, but in looking it over, we found…See More

Top Ten Reasons for Women to Date a Windsurfer (Encore Valentine's Day Edition)

New App: WaterSpotr - Where are your buddies sailing today

US Windsurfing just put out a new app with launch sites and instant connectivity - and of course Facebook integration.  They used some of the site from the map that Dave Dalquist put together, but they still need to add many more Michigan sites.  It's available for iPhone and Android, so check it out.
