Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan
My new Exocet windSUP!!! I sailed this beauty for the first time Saturday.. I was expecting a marginal 8-15 knots... I brought my wife's paddle in case it wasn't worth rigging. I couldn't resist... I rigged up my 8.0. Kicked the dagger down and motored out a 1/4 mile and found the wind! Just enough to pull'er on plane and have a blast. It was smooth! Surprisingly pretty Fast! And Huge HUGE fun!!!!! I have a feeling I'll be on this board 80% of the time next summer, and loving it! Not to mention increasing the sailable days by a huge margin!!! Oh! Almost forgot... this baby will catch the smallest waves too!!! The wind shifted briefly and gave me a side wind to the prevailing wave direction and this thing couldn't help but catch a wave!! I'm talk'n 1 footers!!! LOL! This thing will be a hoot in some onshore Lake MI stuff!!!
