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.  

It's pretty hard…

Lame Father's Day

Seriously, maybe an hour of kitable weather.  I only caught the last 10 minutes :-( on my CB16 and Monster Door.…

My First Back Roll

OK, so I'm a pussy that I never even tried before today, but I've been working on getting good air and stoming the landings.  I got out on my SB12 today with some decent kickers from pretty big boats.  I got some pretty nice air early in the session and was nailing the landings, so I thought wtf - it's so warm, windy, beautiful - let's go for it.

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…

Ok maybe a should have said on H2O instead as I have gone out in the snow but, never really had the right gear or conditiond to really have as much fun as on "liquid" water. This year I have a 9m and it does look pretty good out there today so I may be out tomorrow if I can. Where is Bass lake anyway?

Cool. Bass lake is up in Orillia. I wanted to go to downsview park this afternoon - but didn't have the time. I have a 12 I tried to use a couple weeks ago - but after going through the ice 2ce we went for a farmer's field. By then the wind was way too much for the 12 - plus very turbulent - very hard to control. Finally packed it in :-(

This weekend looks perfect. Take some pics/video if you go

I just got back from Deer Valley and while going through some emails, I noticed the invite to Open Kite had made it to my junk file, so apologies for not getting back to you sooner.
Even with no snowboards allowed, Deer Valley was amazing! I hired some carving skis for the week and had a blast on them until I kissed a tree on the last day:)
Thanks for the offer of hard boots and board....would be great...I’m just not sure when I can get away to give it a shot. When does the winter season typically end in TO?

Nah dude - I just moved yesterday so I was slammed with that - still under water. Hows your foot doing? Were you able to ride in Hatteras?

Hey Andrew
Depends on what it is people want and time of year. Ocean Rodeo is pretty standard for the newest gear, if I get a few guys interested in ordering a bunch of stuff than I can always do better on price saving on shipping costs etc. All dealers are supposed to adhere to a strict pricing structure but a few stores will advertise below what they are supposed to - often not having gear, just to get you in and sometimes give the sales pitch to get something else. I try to at least match the other dealers but give a good personal service where I can helping the friends that kite together and support each other in some ways. When new gear comes out sometime OR have some sweet discounts to clear out that I can pass along.
For Peter Lynn it varies depending on stock and what's hanging around for a while and if something new is out.
Prices change a lot on new gear orders with shipping costs going up all the time and the exchange on the Euro so I'm never 100% sure what distributor prices will be until a shipment arrives.
There are quite a few people that have bought gear through me and usually if someone is getting new gear they let me know of used gear and I put people in touch. Always welcome to try out anything I bring with me anytime.
