King of the Great Lakes was a marvelous celebration of the sport we all love. Kiters from all over the midwest came together in one of the finest kite towns in the region to ride, commune, and have FUN. It was great to see a bunch of old faces and meet a bunch of new ones. Clear sunny days with moderate winds and huge open sand beaches set the table for a heck of a weekend.

Competition wise, Expression sessions on Thursday and Saturday narrowed the 25+ rider field to those who could really throw down. Saturdays final took place in light winds and saw Great Lakes kiters TimmyB, Coach, BLefeve, BigAirKnoth, kMyers, MikeLanoe, Foil Trent, and NickBowers mixing it up with national hot shots Andy Hurdman from Florida, Cameron Dietrich from Puerto Rico, Kai from Carolina, and Kent from SanFran. Hurdmans powered and highly styley riding placed him in a league of his own throwing no flick teched out mobe combo's and amazing feats of big tricks from blind - he was also the only rider all day to never have to walk up wind - pure Black Magic. Andy will be a serious force in Maui for KOA, Ill be pulling for him hard. In my mind the true King of great lakes riders though is runner up Nick Bowers from 'Sconsin. Nick landed big handle passes (including beach mobes?), powered downlooping transitions, and just killed it. Rounding out the podium was Canadian mIKE with his monster kite loops and big handle passes. Awsome.

Thank you Steve Negen of MacKites, RED Bull, and the town of Grand Haven for hosting such a great time.
