Re: Saturday 9/25

The swamp is good right now if you can keep your kite out of the weeds.

Saturday 9/25

Little Hat (AKA The Swamp, AKA Big Muskego) seems good today. I've got a wedding. If anyone rides it, let me know if it is clear of weeds enough for lessons to resume.

Re: Week of Sept 20

Steve, BBR, Nurse Ryan, and horde of surfers went to Bradford today. It worked. BBR hit a new PR on his Woo, Nurse Ryan winged, Steve rode is Core, and I got some time on the water before a lesson. This is the warmest I can remember the water being this late in the season.

Re: Tues 9/14

I tried a second afternoon session at the swamp and found that even though the weeds are dying back, they can still foul kite lines. I tried the "lessons" area near my house and I'm glad I haven't tried lessons there lately because I couldn't even launch my kite. After aborting, sorting li...

Re: Tuesday 9/7

Barely got out before I saw lightning on the horizon. BBR and I are waiting it out. If it comes back after the storm passes, we will go back out on Big Muskego.

Re: Labor day weekend.

Delevan delivered. It took a while for the holes in the wind to fill in and there were more boats on that lake than I've ever seen, but when the wind hit, it hit. I was up and down for the first hour on the 6m Ocean Rodeo HL Glide wing because of the wind and weeds, but then I was nuked and every bo...

Re: Labor day weekend.

I may go to Delevan to wing (!) Like JV said, not ideal conditions and guaranteed crowds. But if you wait for a perfect day in Wisconsin to kite, you'll kite about once a year.

Re: Wednesday 9/1

Was blowing over 20 mph at Racine for a lot of the time and close to it the rest. Sean did great with his new 12m Switchblade. I sorta forgot how well that kite flies. Fall means wind more often!

Wednesday 9/1

Re: Tues 8/31

I went to Racine and it was excellent. After a ride, new kiter Adam showed up for a lesson and did excellent. Hopefully we will have several new kiters on the water this fall.

Re: Sun 8/29

I'll probably just end up doing a couple hours on the swamp.
