Professional Kiteboarder from the UK, Hannah Whiteley in Turkey. An insight into the madness and fun that goes on inside ‘HANNAHLAND”.
Carlyle looks a little better than here on Monday. It might be worth the drive. I'll keep watching the forecast.
$500 for any size Best GP Kite with Bar. 6, 7, 9, or 11
Thinking of maybe going to swim beach tomorrow, Friday. Water still warm enough for a 3/2 wetsuit?
Ken, Michael, and I had another session over at Parnell on Monday afternoon. Michael was on a 7.5 Kahoona and his small board. I was on a 9.5 Kahoona and my small board. Ken showed up a bit later than us and rigged a 10 and rode his flight deck. Around the same time he came out, I switched to the Litewave Wing since the wind was getting gustier and backing off. This is the place for westerlies for sure. - feeling happy
Ken might. I think I will go sailing instead, but I could give you guys a ride. I got really cold yesterday, took a long time to warm up again. I'll wait for Cape Hatteras and Cape Town
Cold, westerly winds are on the menu for today. If anyone wants to go out, I'm ready. The best launch is by boat up at pipeline beach.
Here's a video from Sunday from the guy who maintains the Michigan DawnPatrol website - he sends out an assessment of the weather for the weekend each Thursday for the west coast of Michigan. We have to do a downwinder if we get another shot at it this Fall, maybe with Marc is not the Chicago guys.
King of the Great Lakes was awesome. Plenty of wind, plenty of kiting. Tried several different kites and had my likes and dislikes with each one. The kite that impressed me the most was the 2015 Naish Fly. The kite was a little slow turning, however it was able to climb extremely fast generating power when you needed it most. I was able to cruise up wind without having to work the kite in 8-10 kts where as everyone else (including myself) struggled to stay up wind with other much larger kites.
I put together a few photos that Jen and I took throughout the weekend. I'll be adding some more, but you can find what I have here: thewindspot.com/…
We had an amazing weekend at KOGL 2014 in Grand Haven. The waves were ferocious today with the 30 knot winds, keeping a lot of people off the water. Late in the day, things started to settle down a bit and a few more people braved the conditions. If you haven't gone to this event, you are missing out. I got to try lots of new 2015 gear from several different brands. Three days of demos, two nights of food, two night of parties, and lots of great people. Put it on your calendar for next year.
Waking up pretty early tomorrow to head up to KOGL. Saturday is looking like a good for wind up there. We'll see how the weather holds up though.
Wednesday in the rain? I have the day open.
Yes had a good day Dan got there a bit before me, talking on the phone trying to give directions with bad reception and accent
Rode the 14 and got Anna up for a few short rides on the 7.5
even took the 7.5 back up wind for Anna Shut down about 230
Ken, how was Carlyle? Did you find Dan Sparks?
Had another great session today at the marina. Rode the BWS 12m Noise and the 11m GP. The weather was beautiful contrary to what the forecast showed. It looks like the storms are getting ready to roll in now.
