"Hey what's up Dirk. I still remember those days. You in Michigan this summer? I still windsurf a bit when it's 4.7 and better but prefer to kite nowadays. I still ride HSP when it rips out of the S, SW."

WTB 75- 85 ltr Wave Board

Hi All,Trying to get BACK into the scene this season to mix in with the kiting sessions. Bought some great gear at Windance online - 2 Northwave Surflight sails, Chinook wave booms and a sweet Naish 75 ltr wave....then I get an email from them saying "OH Sorry we just sold that 75 ltr Naish an hour ago....while your order was in the queue.....want to buy a different board for many hundreds more?" Hell no I DON"T. A total Bait and Switch there my friends......at least that's how I feel about…See More
