Back at Wolf

Crazy as it sounds it's been so busy last week that I did not have time to post about one of the most amazing sessions we had a Waukegan. People were pushing it so hard that my buddy Brian snapped his mast a mile from shore. He is some prudent dude and was prepared with life vest, whistle, etc, etc, and Andrew was with him, so both made it to shore... But that's another story.
Today I was back at Wolf, man it's been a while and I almost had forgotten how it feels to rig way big for the conditions and just go out there and blast back and forth. Everybody was there, the freestylers, the speedsters, and us, good times.
I have amazing memories of Wolf. The pond has been generous to me, but riding the big lake is like nothing else. Keep the good days coming!
Andrew and I blasting on 6.5s... The dude is fast!!

6.5 for the first time in 2012

Yes, that's how good Spring was in the Midwest. I've been on my 5.2 since February, incredible. Yesterday we had North in the high teens to the 20s. The sky was cloudy in the morning but cleared by 10 or so, and we had the whole beach for ourselves.
By the way Wavehog released Windsurfing Movie 5, Road Trip... Check it out!

The forecast data was conflicting, once again, which fueled up all sorts of speculations among the Midwest wind chimps. Some said it was going to be on, some said don't bother. I thought we had 50/50 chance, so by 1 PM I packed my stuff and headed to the beach. We ended up with a whole afternoon of 5.2 and 5 footers rolling in at Montrose. 
Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose, but you always come back. 

Yes, the landing was less than optimal
