Kiteboard & Windsurf spring 2015~Deals, Doings & the Dileo.

Spring has sprung but the wind hasn’t yet! A new wind season & the same ol’ same ol. If you are new to the wind game or a veteran that hasn’t figured it out yet, remember, IF it is windy in the spring do everything & anything you can to go out & ride. Do not skip a windy day because 60 degrees with overcast skies aren’t to your liking, don’t say to yourself “well there is a chance of rain”- man, your gonna get wet anyway. AND never ever turn down a chance to ride with your friends! ¬†Go ride….right now. The toxic algae isn’t a problem yet(you know it will be), the winds haven’t shut off yet(they will in July & August) & the beach isn’t crowded yet(Maumee Bay SP on a warm weekend-forget about it). Check with me for closeouts, steals & deals on kiteboard & windsurf gear, no one beats our prices & we’re locals. Hell, we’ll even ship it to you. ūüėõ

…and they’re off! 2014 spring wind season has begun!

After a long cold & snowy record setting winter wind season has finally, finally arrived! Spring winds are the best time to ride, you basically have 2 months to score big winds & decent waves before the summer heat shuts us down. ¬†Brush those cobwebs out of your gear, do a couple of stretches, convince yourself that your tight ass wetsuit must shrink over the winter & go get yourself some. No one wants to hear you in July complaining that “this year sucks” & you’ve only been out 3 times! Ride now, you’ll have to earn it Susie because the water temp is pretty cold & will be for a while. As always remember to support your local shop(buy from Red Sky!) I guarantee we’ll give you the lowest price that you can find anywhere & if you live too far away we’ll ship it to you–you have no excuse not to buy from us! Ride on my wind brothers. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†OD RYAN 2OD MARK 4OD MARK 2OD RYAN 5

 

This has been one sucky bummer of a summer(& fall!)

I know this is going to sound like the “back in my day things were different” old guy rant but man, I swear this has been one crappy summer(& fall!) of epic disappointment due to weather(lack of), injury & bad luck.¬†Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it never blows much in the summer, but this season seems different. ¬†It started early this spring, it was cold but we ¬†hardly a wave day come through, we had some wind but no swell, no Luna Pier bomber days, no 3 day Maumee Bay North blows. It continued into late spring, the annual Hatteras trip was cancelled due to injury! We haven’t missed that trip in over 20 years. Then when we were supposed to be in Hatteras I jacked my ribs/internal stuff. I still haven’t shaken the bruise & discomfort of it(nor have I rode since then-I’m not sure how the harness is going to work without killing me). Thats not so bad you say? ¬†You might be saying to yourself “what else do you got for us you big pansy?” Well then the construction of Central & Secor ¬†roads cranked into full speed grinding the shop to a halt! There have been many days when the intersection has been closed & usually busy Central Ave is a ghost town. Wow, it can’t get much worse, can it? How about the complete lack of wind for weeks on end maybe the monsoon rains that we had or how about the oppressive heat. Well, to top it all off I ruptured my¬†Plantar Fascia¬†tendon running a 100 meter dash against my 12 year old(I was up big when it let go). I got to wear a groovy walking boot for 4 weeks & I’m not supposed to do anything until 7/31! What else could go wrong? All the bad karma, juju, vibes have had to of been used up, right? With that said bring on the fall! And I’m not missing next opportunity for wind I’m taking, jacked up or not!
