Introducing myself

Hey, fellow midwest windsurfers!  My name is Jim.  I just joined MI Windsurfing forum.  I'm a native Michigander from Milan (S. of Ann Arbor).  I learned to windsurf at the Univ. of Wisconsin in 1991, and have been doing it as often as I can ever since.  I live in Oregon, west of Portland, so I do most of my sailing in the Gorge these days.  

My wife and I just bought a place near Lake Michigan that will eventually be our retirement home.  But that is several years out.  I have a Mistral Screamer (old style) 103L board there and sails ranging from 4.2 to 6.7m^2.  I'm looking to pick up a 7.5m^2 sail and another board in the 118-130L range for lighter wind days.  Used gear is plentiful here in the Gorge.

The lack of rental gear certainly is not helping our sport.
