Lake Sacandaga Snowkite Rally. Feb. 18-21, 2017

Kiteclubny.com is organizing a weekend snow kite festival three hours East of Rochester on Great Scandaga Lake, and based on their past success they are jazzed up to have more than 100 riders and gear demo’s over the course of the rally.  How cool would it be to get a Rochester crew together to represent out there!?  Check out the event website HERE and then head to the RWS forum page to formalize a plan.

New Vid: Rick’s Backyard

October 22, 2016 was a windy day.  Rick went out back to Webster Park and ripped on his 4.8 and 4.2 in cold and blustery conditions……in a wetsuit…….for a couple hours.  Here is a small sample of his time on the water.  My camera batteries quit……Rick didn’t.  Enjoy

Video: Cayuga Lake Windsurfing from the air.

So Rochester Windsports fancies itself to be of the Rochester and Finger Lakes region…….admittedly, that’s a stretch when it gets much further south and east of Geneva on Seneca Lake.  As this video shows, windsurfing (and kiting for that matter) is alive and well with a good group keeping the torch lit on Cayuga Lake.  I’d love to get to ride with these guys sometime.  Until then, enjoy this great drone footage.
