Awesome Predictions Lately

Today the peak was supposed to be at ~ 6:00 PM with gusts to 18 MPH.  The gusts even hit 20 at about 6:15!  Unfortunately I was not lucky enough to get out to enjoy this - and yes it hurt :-(.

Also note that Georgian Bay was going off all day.  Check it out:…

Lightwind Day to Play

Pretty marginal weather today - but certainly enough for my CB16 and monster door.  However, I must say, after nailing myfirst back loops on Saturday, riding the door just wasn't quite what I was looking for.  I brought along a 1986 Cobra 260 windsurf board from an era long long ago. I never tried a directional board, and I don't have a surf board - this was the closest thing.

I started going for it.  Every time I even tried I dropped the kite.  At first I was having trouble making it around.  The wipes…

2012 - The Season of the 9M

Today I got yet another 9M day in!  It was great.  I got on the water at Keswick at about 4:00.  The direction wasn't great so was a bit gusty, patchy, shifty.  It filled in with nice gusts.  Around 5:00 it really filled in with more of a NW shift.  There were some nice kickers out there which made for some sweet boosts.  I was doing well landing most - some pretty hard!  Had a couple that went down and under water before popping up - a bit too much of a nose first landing ;-). Had a couple…
