Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Hello all,
I'm a beginner / recreational windsurfer in my second year with this sport.
I'm wondering if there are any people in the Oakland county area who occasionally sail or practice on the smaller lakes around here.
I've been a few times to Pontiac lake on an afternoon or weekend. I'm sure there are better suited lakes around.
Looking for like minded people to learn from and practice with.

Hi Jan contact me accept my friend request and I will send you an e-mail address with a great contact!

I am not sure if he wants it broadcast so better in private!

Bob Shoen's e-mail list is the one you might want but i am not sure if he wants his e-mail printed here with

out his permission! So I could send it to you in private if you like!  He has a group that sails Cass Lake!


Come out to Cass Lake through Dodge Park #4 when the wind is blowing W/SW. There is a great crowd of experienced windsurfers and shallow (5') water across the lake and at the launch by the park. Hope to see you there.


In case you have gotten no responses,  I would suggest Dodge #4 State Park on Cass Lake, not too far from Pontiac Lake. I tired to do Pontiac Lake last year, but there appeared to be little waterfront outside of the "formal" beach, with a long hike from the parking lot. Cass is much better that way. That is the go-to spot outside of the Great Lakes around here.

Silly me - did not look far enough to see the  other responses. Have you made it there yet? Look for my big white GMC van and say hello.
