windsurfing lessons in northern Michigan

Hey guys,
I've been learning how to windsurf in nanjing, China for not quite 6 months now and, being there's a language barrier, I've hit a point where I don't know how to further improve. So,I come back to traverse city every summer and was hoping you all could lead me to some windsurfing lessons when I come home. I don't have any equipment, as I've been renting from the sailing club here in China. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Gone Boarding!

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!

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…

Blue Lagoon Blues

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.
