Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan
This from Pete DeKay on the iWindsurf Forums:

I am not able to take subscriptions yet (should be soon) but I may be able to send you a free issue. If you are interested in receiving our premiere issue then please e-mail your name and…

Check out this high school course at Forest Hills Eastern, in Ada, MI. In Gone Boarding students learn to surf, long board, paddle board, snowboard. While also learning how to make a surf board and ski's or a snowboard.
Might not be college prep, but sure looks like fun.

According to The Windsurf Loop blog, Michigan's own Pam Levy did the Mitt proud at the ECWF - Cape Cod, by taking second place in the Women's Freestyle division. Pam's become an ABK devotee (not Pam's words) and I guess it's paid-off. Congrat's Pam!
Thanks Don, for sharing…Continue

We had a variety pack of Michigan weather for the Original Windsurfer regatta but that didn't stop us from having a very enjoyable time. Participants came from Ohio and Michigan for the August 16 Regatta, some new to windsurfing and others actively competing to win the races. I always enjoy a day with other windsurfers enjoying our beautiful water and am looking…Continue

Since we haven't been blessed with much wind, and I haven't been blessed with any free time, I'm sitting here grading papers and Jonesing to get wet, and ran across Shawna Cropas' recent post about some of the Rocking Windsurfers that she's met.Continue

Long-time Casevillian, windsurfer and kiteboarder extraordinaire, Larry Ruhstorfer, opened up a shop on the beach in the Caseville County Park. The shop rents SUPs, kayaks and offers kiteboarding lessons, as well as some retail in the brands you know. If you're in the area ( a ~2-hour drive from the metro Detroit area) for…Continue

I regret to inform everyone that the Blue Lagoon Marina has been taken over by Blaz Marine and they will not offer access to the lake for non-members. If you choose to purchase a boat and rent a slip then you will have access to the lake. The Owner of the Marina has made the decision, not Blaz, and as of now, the decision seems final. I will work on them again in the summer and press for fall access.
Take care and see you soon.
