Hello everyone,

If youíre looking to demo the new 2008 Havoc our GLK Tawas and St. Clair Shores shop will have a 12 and 16 to demo by next week. The Tawas shop is the only Liquid Force dealer in the area. We will also have the new REV from Slingshot coming soon. Also if you want to demo the new Ruben Lenten Lunacy 129 let me know, I have had this board out 3x and it rocks. It rides like a 135 and loads up like no other board I have been on. Check it out!!

This is Arnot Heller from Tawas Board Riders.

We are looking forward to our first event and revealing our radically new Demo Shop format and the web-based interface to the people who attend. If you are unable to attend and interested in the Demo Shop program for 2008, please contact me. We believe it is the ultimate way to test all the best new kiting gear.

We're hoping for wind!

Arnot, I will send up my Wake Kite demo for you to use for your event. It is a great toy to have for those low/no wind days.

Can you post the room/cabin rates for the cabins next to your shop? It would be cool if everyone could stay right there on the Bay.

If we have a N, NW, or W wind we will be kiting out at the end of the point. To ease the logistics of getting people and gear out there we are planning on having some boat shuttles running right from TBR throughout the day. Any other direction and we'll be kiting at the "normal" spot up the beach from the swim area.

I just talked to John Zimmerman at Ocean Rodeo and he is going to be able to get us an 8M & 12M Rise for your event.

Sweet, new things to try and break!

Hello All,

I hope to get a chance to see a lot of you this weekend at Tawas. I will be up there Saturday and Sunday. I will have a lot of the 2008 Naish gear with me, including the Helix and Cult kites and some of the new boards.

I am heading up early am on Sunday through Monday night to take advantage of the big South. I don't think the park shutdown will effect us if it happens on Monday because we can be shuttled to the point by boat from Jerry's Marina, which is outside the state park gates. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in Tawas look really really good!

I look forward to trying out some new 08 stuff.

Got into Tawas on Sunday around 11am with Chris to moderate S winds. All the new stuff was on the beach to check out. Cabrinha, Naish, North and Liquid Force's new 08s were rigged and ready for everyone to grab. I was able to ride everything but the Cabrinha, which is the plan for today in Tawas. The Ocean Rodeo kites did not make it in from Canada, but I am hoping they are at Tawas Board Riders this morning. I did not have to pump up my own stuff until like 4pm. My 18M proved perfect for the conditions around 5pm when the wind picked up nicely.

Arnot, great concept and thanks for the beverages on Sunday! Being able to compare 4-5 different kites and boards in the same session and conditions really lets you know which one does it for you. I think we counted 47 kites on the beach and a ton of people.

Great weekend at Tawas. It was great to see some many familiar faces and the opportunity to meet new riders. Big thanks to Arnot, Matt, and Chris from Tawas Board Riders for the Hospitality and the accommodations. If Sunday was any indication, your demo concept will be a huge success for next year; I wish you all the best. Timberline Lodge was great, thank you Jason.

Sorry for the delay, but I uploaded some sweet pictures of the TBR Demo Days into its own Photo Gallery under Michigan.

Since Mr. Dan Cote (Aspiring Model & Actor) was injured (Kite LOOP) and in a knee immobilizer for the TBR Demo Days he was able to get some real cool photos. Thanks Dan.

I just figured out how to do a bulk upload of pictures so if anyone has 5 or more and you want me to do it send them to me as a zip file to John@Medirectinc.com
