Cris replied to Dirk van Putten's discussion Lots of Windsurfing Gear for Sale
"Any chance you would sell one or two of those Naish Stealth Speed Sails? I'm interested in any of sails smaller than 6.5. I'll take that seat harness too. And maybe Goya Quad if it's still available depending on it's condition."

Windsurfing Pelee Island, Ont. CA [9/14/2019]Getting ThereThe plan described in my last blog post talked about going to Canada by sea, well Lake Erie at least. My wife and I hoped to go for two days, but the weather on Friday called for rain and thunderstorms.  40 miles is not far by land, but it requires special attention on open water. No way were we going to be caught in a squall like those…See More

"Hey Cris I enjoyed that. WSing in Michigan is definitely exploration with a lot of luck to hit the right spot on the right days.  Petoskey area is a bit further than TC but with similar sailing, maybe less crowded beaches . …"

Cris replied to Huckleberry's discussion Any Ann Arbor windsurfers out there?
"Hey all, if there are any windsurfing fanatics still out there in 2019, lets talk. I want to get back into the sport at some point. My gear is old and terrible. It was well used and I've made the best of it. I wish I had the kind of rental gear…"

Camping + Windsurfing MI

Having some unused vacation days and lingering desire to somehow get sailing again. I decided to go on a quest to camp where the sailing is good, buy a new or used windsurfer, sail it and generally have a sailing vacation that's been missing from my life.

The Shop

Why buy? My windsurfing gear is about 20 years old. I got what I could afford at the time. As such that gear is old, heavy and slow. It served me well for years and years. I think it is well overdo to…
