Hi Brian:

 I have not windsurfed in about 30 years and am looking for advice on equipment. Thinking about getting back into it again. I miss sailing. Have you any advice on starter to mid-level equipment? Used is OK also. Thanks for the help

Hi Brian,

Do you have the bic fin still for sale, how much would P&P to Ireland cost?

Looks interesting.  I'll think about checking it out.

Good Info.  I'll probably head to Cass Lake tomorrow and see if I can get in on a 90 F day.

Thanks for the welcome message.  

I used to sail long time ago (last sailed in 1997) at Stoney creek and Orchard lake.   I am planning to get back to Windsurfing and introduce my son (19) and daughter (16) to this wonderful sport.   Was glad to see this website for michigan windsurfing community.   I am looking for equipment (sold mine in 97) and feel bad that I missed the swap meet held at Dodge Park earlier this month.

Brian, Thanks for the welcome--I stumbled onto MW from a link on Windsurfing Int'l mag site. Nice to connect with this community. We have a small group of sailors living along the shore between the old Breakers-on-the-Bay and Port Crescent campground. I'm here almost full time. Hope to meet you in person some day. Do I understand that you are from Lake Orion? That has been our home for over 30 years.

Hello Brian

Did my comment make it back to you? I hope you are having some good spring wind.

Thank you, Dirk

Thanks for the welcome.  Lake Geneva is a small obscure lake in Northern Michigan (near Onaway).   Not particularly great windsurfing, but that's where I seem to be most.  

Do you happen to know if there will be a Windsurfing swap meet anywhere in Michigan this Spring?

Once a Michigander, always a Michigander. I grew up right on Lake Michigan about 1 mile north of the Holland pier. I taught windsurfing for the Surf Shop in Holland. I started windsurfing in 1980.
I am thrilled there is a Michigan windsurfing group.
Thank you, Dirk
