"Thanks Brian... I will have to figure out if there may be a better spot to go to for today. Doubtful. I believe Eric Dietrich and I will be going to Belle Isle tomorrow afternoon. I will likely just aim to do that."

Weekend Wind!

Hey all! Seeing that the wind looks promising for this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. Great direction to sail Blue Lagoon. My questions are 1, anyone care to join? And 2, we can still use Blue Lagoon as a launch site, correct? I have heard mixed reports. Mostly that kiters still use it. So theoretically we should be able to also? Thanks for the info in advance and I hope to see some of you guys out there this weekend!Cheers,ChrisSee More

2014 Ezzy Lion Cam 8.5m FOR SALE

Up for sale is my '14 Ezzy Lion Cam 8.5. It is in nearly brand new condition; I bought it as a demo sail (used about 3 times) and then I used it for one season. It has been rigged maybe only 15-20 times for its entire life and was never left in the sunlight. As we all know, Ezzy sails are incredibly reliable and this one is in pristine condition. It will last for countless years! I am only selling this sail because I am upgrading my quiver to 100% slalom racing equipment and would like to move…See More

"I believe it! I am in the process of expanding my quiver a bit to switch over to race stuff. In the meantime I'm going to get back on the water next week (I think) to work on my light wind speed and gybing =)"

Great seeing you out there yesterday amongst all the carnage of crashing kites.

I ended up on a 5.0 at the peak time.

Also check out the Metro Beach Weathertalker it reports the current wind conditions at Metro Beach. Call it at 586 783 3112
