I'll be at Pike about 11 with most of my windsurfing gear. I'm getting rid of almost all of it, one way or another. Boards, booms, sails, masts, mast feet, fins--all kinds of goodies. Most will be give-aways, 'cause they're all old but still usable.

We will not get there until sometime after 1:00, let the worst of the rain pass and wind looks bigger after that.

Don - with respect to equipment, Gary might be interested but not there until after 3:00 as some people still work to keep us retirees supported...

Steve and Don, how did the kiting turn out? Unfortunately I had to leave around 3:30ish - it was literally starting to turn good as I was walking my stuff up to the car!!

SSYC Thrusday, methinks. Might use next beach over to avoid boats and dirty air...

Solid 2 hour session off windpower

Local report was that it was clear of the blue green

Highlight being that they took down the 2 trees right by the steps getting into the water.

Was able to walk out with kite in air and land on the grass!

Huge upgrade!

We got a decent hour just as you left Ryan- same big gusts & lulls- seemed stronger when the sun came out.
Just when I thought it was time to quit it would squeeze out a few more big ones.
Some epic gusts- got my second elevator jump- amazing feeling.

Great news that Winnebago is back open for business- thx for sharing.
