Re: Mille Lacs Kite Crossing March 6-8

Great looking forward to meeting you guys. Still haven't Pre-registered? Here are three really good reasons: 1) Prices go up on Weds, You Save Big Money, Save Big Money, when you shop Fleet8 ; ). 2) Shirts are only guaranteed to those who pre-register. (supply is limited) 3)You know you're going, so...

Great day on Waconia

I put up a gallery from Friday and Saturday from Waconia (windsurfers and kiters). Windsurfers were loving the big winds as were the kiters who had the small kites.

Check out the gallery.

Re: Boards & Bindings Discussion

If you have really narrow feet the SS bindings may not be the best choice. From what I've heard the best for narrow feet are the Liquid Force straps. I never use a heel strap and rarely loose my board. There are boots, but I'm not sure I would try them at the level your are currently at. Most straps...

Re: drones on calhoun

Worthy topic as I'm sure we're going to see more and more of these in the coming years. Just like the discussion of sharing the lake with boaters, swimmers, snowmobilers etc etc., everyone is just out enjoying the day...no one has any more rights than anyone else. Most challenges come, as a few have...

Every year the forecasts for this event give us some gray hairs as soon as they come online a week or so out from the event. This year was no exception. 20 below and no wind was what we were seeing.

Re: Kite Island

I never know the actual height. In my mind I am soaring with the eagles. That day was so vivid. The light, the snow flow, the patches of light on surface, and then the patches of light would illuminate the snow flowing above the surface creating a form, almost like a building. Very very cool. Loved ...

Beautiful day, think there may be enough to ride. Keep the faith. The system that was to roll through today just got moved forward. Tonight might be good, or a dawn patrol. Cam mounts are great.
