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.
Rode my 11m GP and Litewave for a couple of hours today. I'm trying to get used to the GP so I can start doing more tricks this fall season. It takes several sessions to get used to the feel of the kite. I need to be able to fly it blind before I'm willing to throw myself too hard at the water.
Maybe, but let' not try this trick from three of the worlds best in Cape Town vimeo.com/…
Watch for wind tomorrow.
St Joseph would have been interesting today. Before and after the lines of storms went through. During the storms it appears they had gusts to 50 knots!
Went to The Road today with Michael and Jen around 1:30pm. Michael rode the 9.5m Kahoona. I started out on the 12m BWS Noise until it started kicking my ass. I then rigged down to the 11m GP. We rode until 5pm.
Michael and I are heading to Upper Limits in Bloomington tomorrow to do some climbing. We will be there at 10am for a class, and then climbing the rest of the afternoon.
Nice. We were in Fiji for a few days a decade ago and the SE trades blew hard every day. Hopefully I'll get there again on a yacht within the next decade!
This is the Fone surf board I have in Cape Town, just wish I could ride it this well! vimeo.com/…
