What Good Kiters Look Like

Saturday we had 20-30mph winds on White Bear Lake. If you're not real familiar with windspeed, that means REALLY FRIGGIN WINDY. The wind was peeling the hardpack right off the lake. Nate, Jer, and I were stuck using my trainer since the inflatables would have been way to powerful and my 5m won't get back from the shop until Monday. The trainer had plenty of pull in those conditions, but its tiny size made it unpredictable and kind of hard to control. It was great to see some of the experienced guys really going big. I got some pics of Mike, who was willing to put on a show for the camera. Sure looks like fun... Hopefully it will be me soon.

Looks like lots of fun Bryan!!!!
I will be attending the seminar at Midwest this week on kiting and then looking to buy one myself. Consider Lake Pepin. It's 20 miles long and 2 miles wide. Sailboat heaven during the summer! Perfect for a Southerly wind.
