Spring is here?

    With last week's snow still fresh on my mind, I had not started thinking about windsurfing yet. Fortunately, my wife thinks more clearly than I do. When she saw how windy it was at our house…Continue

    This site is on the Long Island Sound. It is a popular wave site in NW winds, since there is about 100 miles of fetch for the waves to build. In this video, there is a 20-25 knot NW breeze, but…Continue

Barely a photographer! I do ride a lot though-mostly on Lake Erie! One of the guys I ride with is into photography & anytime he gets gassed he pulls his cam out, hence we get a lot of pics.

Welcome To Michigan!!!  I'm glad you enjoyed the quick ride on my gear!  You sure were hard core without a wetsuit.  Hope to see you on the water again soon!

Larry, Molly, You'll both want to sign up for the Yahoo MIWindsurf email group.

send an email to: miwindsurf-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

There is discussion of upcoming wind events, occasional session reporting,

launch discussions, etc. The best feature by far is Millard's upcoming wind

analysis. You don't want to miss that.

Molly: You don't want to launch at most of these places until you've got a reliable water start:

Larry, you'll want to launch at Kettle Point in Ontario on a NNW or N wind for waves, or possibly St. Joseph.

At Marysville if it is a strong South (closest thing around to the Gorge),

At Lexington if there's an NNE or NE.

At Sterling if it is a SE.

Caseville works on a SW.

Maumee works on a West

There are numerous places much farther north too, but I'm not too

familiar with them.  After work you'll have to make Lake Lansing work for you.

Haha - I'm new too! I just started windsurfing last summer. I'm afraid I won't be much help. Maybe we could get a group together to go windsurfing sometime this summer, though??

I've surfed Higgins Lake a couple times and Mullet Lake - both are nice places for Windsurfing: usually windy, grassy rigging areas, shallow. That's all I got. :)
