Posted by: GLK LeFeve Sep 8 2011, 04:57 PM

Hello everyone,

GLK has been really busy this year thus the reason we have not sent out a newsletter since spring. With that said we have a ton of new and exciting news!!

Coming this Sunday to Michigan Sept 11th is the Best Tour Bus loaded with all the new 2012 kites and boards. It will first stop at the GLK shop in St. Clair Shores then we will be off to Metro Beach as the wind looks like it will be SW. All are welcome to try out the new 2012 gear from Best. They have some sick kites and boards coming out next year, so hopefully we will have some decent wind for the demo! Check it out here http://www.bestkiteboarding.com/The_RV_Tour_Returns.

The long awaited 2nd generation Wainman Rabbit’s have been unveiled today…check them out here: http://www.wainmanhawaii.com/. GLK is stoked to be a premier dealer and will be stocking these kites as soon as they are available to dealers…which look like it may be next week! Wainman has added 3 new sizes to their line , featuring a redesigned Carrot Bar with new safety system. I just took a sneak peak at the new graphics and they are absolutely sick! Most of all the GLK Team are on these kites for a reason !!

Slingshot has their new surfboard out now. I have been riding the 6’1 Tyrant this season and have been totally stoked on this board. Its crazy fast and lively! The 2012 Tyrant incorporates the WVS Bamboo construction that translates to rail tight traction and a lively feel. WVS also makes the Tyrant the most durable kite surfboard offered today. The Tyrant lets you put more power in your wave riding. Ride it strapped or strapless. The tri fin configuration also allows for snappy turns in the pocket and solid drive down the line. NEW DFS compatible fin box provides super structure when reefs or shoreline crop up for maximum durability. Check out their full line up here: http://ride.slingshotsports.com/kiteboarding/surf. I am very excited for the 2012 twin tips from Slingshot. For one they are all built here in the U.S. Slingshot has a new board to their collection called the Mayhem which is a groundbreaking twin tip board performance that caters to the top PKRA riders and aggressive intermediates to offer insane grip, pop, speed and control in an outline that lends consistent flex and unreal loading capabilities. The Mayhem has a contoured outline from tip to tail and precise thickness which allows hard carving. Check them out: http://ride.slingshotsports.com/kiteboards. The Slingshot Rally did really well for GLK this year! We are stoked to be carrying the new 2012 for next season: http://ride.slingshotsports.com/2012-Rally?sc=45&category=35376.

Well it’s that time of year again!! Oh yeah baby the 9th annual Kitemare Bash is in full swing for October 8th and 9th at the Mai Tiki resort. This is a legendary event that has never disappointed! We will have tons of swag and giveaways from Slingshot, Wainman Hawaii, Best Kiteboarding and Dakine. Book your room now before it fills up. You can call the Mai Tiki Resort at 989-739-9971 and tell them you are with the GLK group for Kitemare. I will have more info on the Great Lakes Kiteboarding website and Facebook page.

Lastly GLK started selling Stand Up Paddle Boards this season. This is a great alterative to no wind days that allows you to still get out on the water. It’s a great workout and incredible easy to surf on! GLK has a few Jimmy Lewis, Oxbow and Slingshot boards that we are discounting. So call or keep an eye out on our website under the online store and SUP page.

Looking forward to seeing you out on the water and at Kitemare. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or e mail me.

Cheers,
