What a day! Got to Edgewater at 8:30 a.m. to find no wind! Then moved on to Avon and found gusts above 40kts! A low is holding a storm over Lake Erie descending to Avon. Winds W of that are NUKING. There is a counter clockwise rotation that has had this thing in a holding patter ALL DAY. Never seen anything like it. If you rode NWOhio, please chime in.

Highest winds I have ever kited at the power plant. 5 meter, fully depowered on a small board and still just holding it down through the gusts!



No, this is NOT as close as it looks. I was downwind of the surfer! Thanks Jamie for the pics.


Don also got a piece of the Edge yesterday:

The African Wonder and I headed out to Main St. Beach in Vermilion.
Looked like a classic set-up Blowin hard out of the North all night then going NE by midday on Sunday.

It never went totally NE but NNE. Still great waves. Sorry no pics, no body wanted to get their camera blown away by the 40kts gusts! Wind was anywhere between 25 to 40!
