Hi Everyone,I have a fairly used 2008 Tabou 3S 97L. The year is 2008. I bought it in Alacati, Turkey, and brought it over with me to the US. It has seen the SF Bay Area waters, and just a little bit…Continue

"Hey Scott- sorry for the late reply. I do have the Tabou still. It's sitting in a garage in Traverse City, MI while I sit here in Cyprus in the Mediterranean! All the best, Hazim"

Brian replied to Hazim's discussion Wetsuit Repair - Repair Kit??
"Hazim, Stop at a scuba shop and get some wet suit repair cement.  (You can order it online if you like.)  If it's a tear, you can fix it in 10 minutes.   If the suit is getting old, it might just keep tearing, but you can…"

Wetsuit Repair - Repair Kit??

Hi Michigan WindFriends,I wanted to get some advice/opinions on wetsuit repairs. I have a nice 4/3 NP wetsuit that I am taking back with me to Cyprus for winter sailing. It has a good size tear coming down from the neck area, and as you can imagine it just gets worse as I put it on every time. Does anyone know of any good repair kits out there that I can use to patch it well enough to keep the suit? It'd be nice if it is something I can use here to fix it before I have to hop on the plane by…See More

YAKIMA Roofrack (Honda CRV) for your Windsurfing/SUP gear!

Hi again,As part of our move, we are also selling the roofrack system that we had for our old CRV, which we religiously used to carry my windsurfing gear and SUP. The system has the following pieces to fit on the Honda CR-V, models 2002 - 2011, if the CR-V has the landing pads (you can easily look it up on the Yakima website). Ours was a 2004 model. Not sure if it fits on other cars, but again you can look it up on the YAKIMA website. We got the total package for close to $400 about 3.5 years…See More

Tabou 3S, 97L, 2008, Limited Edition - Great light board for B&J!

Hi Everyone,I have a fairly used 2008 Tabou 3S 97L. The year is 2008. I bought it in Alacati, Turkey, and brought it over with me to the US. It has seen the SF Bay Area waters, and just a little bit of inland lakes here in Michigan. It is still a good board to ride and I do wish I had more use of it. No major damages on the board... mostly cosmetics and a few small dents here and there. Now, it's time for us to move out of the country. Is anyone interested? I am asking for $250...…See More

"Hi Gary- I am moving to Cyprus. I have a 2008 Tabou 3S 97L board that I want to sell... it's fairly used but very functional. I wish I used it more here in Michigan (maybe used it a few times over the last 3 years that I lived in Michigan). Let…"

"Hazim: I live in Traverse City, but am from Houghton, and agree with Tom's and Brian's comments - I strongly recommend bringing smaller gear. I've not sailed Big Bay, but the predominant south to southwest winds would be pushing…"

Brian replied to Hazim's discussion Lake Superior- Big Bay- Need quick response please... Thanks!
"Hazim, Like Tom, I've sailed over near Houghton.  The water is cold, so bring some thick rubber.  In August it will be better, but you'll still need a wet suit. If you can, definitely take your smaller boards.  I know there…"

Lake Superior- Big Bay- Need quick response please... Thanks!

Hey Wind-friends,In 4 days, I am moving up to the UP from SE MI for about 2 months and I will be right by Big Bay on Lake Superior... I am taking my 12'6" windSUP with me.... Does anyone know what the conditions are like there? Wind, water temperature? Is it worth taking my smaller boards (111 freerace and 94 FSW) and some sails? I was thinking maybe I'd just take my 5.5 to play on the WindSUP in addition to some paddle boarding.Thanks,HazimSee More

Enjoying the lakes...

I know Brian has kindly posted this for me before, but I thought I'd post it again so that everyone can respond directly to my email....Hi Everyone! I'm new to the area... Moved out here from SF Bay Area in November. Now that I see sunshine and non-frozen lakes, I am getting really antsy to get out on the water... I live walking distance to Walled Lake. What are the local spots around here? How is spring windsurfing here? Water temperatures too cold for a 4/3 wetsuit? How about water quality in…See More
