Time to ride! No excuses, Erie is slowly but surely warming up, the water is running high, the winds are starting to blow with some regularity & Maumee Bay is as brown as ever-so WTH are you waiting for? Maumee Bay SP, Luna Pier, CI, Boobies, Avon PP, Pats, the sandbar, Findlay reservoir or wherever you choose to rig, get out there and ride- kiteboard, windsurf or SUP doesn’t matter just do it. Tell us were you’re going, what was going down & how it was. We’ll see you out on the water.

The Winter Swell Soul Riders~none but the brave 2016-17

When the winds start to blow at gale force out of the SW you know the winter wind season has arrived. The water will be uncrowded & the beaches will be barren. You will be very cold, your hands will go numb followed soon by your feet & you will love it. The winter swell is for the soul rider, the rider who will go out despite all these negatives to get his fix in. Here’s to all of us, be careful out there. Ride on!

Come and ride with us. Tuesdays we meet up & go kiteboarding & windsurfing (weather & wind permitting). It’s not a lesson, it’s not a demo-the goal is to go riding & have fun, bring your gear & come riding with us, got questions or just want to watch, come on out! We’ll post here where we’ll be, what its looking like & the most important thing, ‘IF’ the wind is cooperating & we’re actually going to be able to ride. The usual spots are Maumee Bay State Park & Luna Pier. 4 PM ish is when we arrive. Check back  & see whats up!

The 2016 spring water & wind season has begun

Here we go again, the high wind spring season is upon us. By now you should know the score, it’s going to blow 15 to 20 knots 3 days every week but it’s also going to be on the chilly side. You know this but a lot of you will ignore the good winds & wait for warmer air & water temps that will come when the wind starts dying out in June. As is always the case by the end of June you will start complaining how bad the spring was(even though you passed all the windy days because it was “too cold”.) The way to solve this is to buy a super warm wetsuit from your favorite shop, Red Sky. I’ll cut you a deal & we’ll order in a perfect suit just for you. It will be guaranteed to turn that cold frown upside down. Also there are killer closeout deals on kites & boards from Slingshot & also Ezzy and Aerotech sails. Let me know if you need anything & I’ll hook you up.
