Doug C. must have been really stoked after his session snow kiting on Long Pond, because this video made it up in less than 24 hours. Conditions look killer for the crew to rip some 40 mph+ runs, loft some jumps, and even ski backwards. Thanks for the winter fire this video gives us Doug.
Warm temps and thick ice combined with warm winds to set up great conditions for a Kitewing session on the southern end of Irondequoit Bay. Winds were gusting to the low twenties and temps neared fifty as Scott , Gary, and Doug used skis to carve the IBay ice. Of note was Gary’s first ever session. Great start to the season.
Come one, come all to the fifth annual RWS HIHO scheduled for Sunday February 11, at Mulconry’s Pub in Fairport, NY. Windsurfers and Kiteboarders catch up with all your wind friends and reflect on the past season, the current season and the upcoming spring. Share stories, laughs, food and beverage. Also watch local wind action on the TV, and bring any gear you may have to sell or trade. Significant others and friends welcome. Stay tuned for more info on how to sign up.
Some of the crew was lucky enough to get out during the work week, during business hours…..lucky!!!! Turns our a skilled local photographer was looking for subjects to test out a new lens and she happened upon the crew dancing on Long Pond. She went above and beyond and reached out via the contact form on the RWS website and shared these images. If you’d like a print, contact me and I will put you in contact with her. ALSO, if you have local wind sport pics you’d like to share, it’s easier than you think. Get a hold of me.
