Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan
This is outrageous. You're STEALING one of my (and many other Long Island sailors) favorite windsurfers! The Mighty Larry Hoff is what he's properly called. Andy Brandt of ABK calls him Larry the Legend, but that's because he forgot about The Mighty... Some things you should know:
He's an excellent freestyle
He owns some of the most beaten up sails that it's possible to rig.
Check out his longboard too (if it didn't evaporate since I last saw it)
One of the ten nicest guys in the world.
What do we get?

I'm flattered that Michael made a blog entry about my transfer from Long Island to Michigan.
In that entry, he links to http://miwindsurfing.com/. I feel like an ambassador - strengthening
the ties between our windsurfing communities - even tho Michael uses words like "hate" :-)
I see that neither Michael nor I properly attributed the Gecko photograph.That was taken by
Long Island photographer and waterman Jeff Schultz. If you liked that photo, check out his site:
Thanks Larry, much appreciated! I've joined MI Windsurfing to follow the tale of the Mighty Larry Hoff. Oh, and pay no mind to Michael, he's a little sore from missing yesterday's winter wave sailing sesh!
Andy - I still plan to come to the May ABK camp on Long Island.
I have not yet brought my gear here. It was blowing 25 in Lansing
on Friday, but I'll wait till the water is in liquid form first ;-)
Larry's gear is where it belongs...on Long Island, where we sailed 4.7's yesterday on liquid water. Come back, Larry, come baaaaaaaaaaaaack.
Now I see what's happening. First Michael makes a plea to get the Might Larry Hoff back. That doesn't work. Then the also-mighty Andy Brant mysteriously chimes in to make a second plea. Then the schemer reveals himself again. Bribing Andy Brandt to try to get the Mighty Larry back . . . well, that's low!
If there's ever a phase change on these Greatest of Lakes, the Mighty Larry might just like it here!
