Saturday October 22, things got a little gnarlier than forecast, and H2O Authority Rick was the only rider that got out at this difficult launch. He sailed his 4.8, then 4.2, and called it quits when the winds became too much for that. Check out the GALLERY our carve on over to the Photo page.
An October nuker here, from 2015. They drive from Toronto and Montreal when we send them WSW winds across the lake. These conditions are unbelievable! That’s a lake, not an Ocean.
The riding has been nuts on the South shore of Lake O. the past few days, and here’s a really nice video of the kites on the North shore near Kingston, Ontario. Nic Chapleau makes great vids. Check it out:
It seemed to blow for days on end, but my memory is fuzzy on that. Refresh your memory and follow these links to some kite and windsurfing goodness. Montana windsurf and kite (click)Photo Gallery Montana Beach Kite Vid:
It’s early in the development of inflatable planing windsurfers, but taking from SUP board knowledge RRD has created a pretty impressive board. See the video, and the link to the UK’s Windsurf Magazine for a proto speed board. http://www.windsurf.co.uk/rrd-inflatable-speed-board/ .
On April 30, 2007, the RWS Website hit the water, and since then has gone through three updates and three discussion forums to get where it is now. This last April Rochester Windsports joined Facebook because well…why not, and it’s about time. My vision is that the website and Facebook pages will compliment each other and bring more of our local content to more people. All new posts on the RWS Homepage should now auto post to the RWS Facebook page. Recent updates are a couple of new photo galleries, a video, and session reports on the forum. Visit, and Like Rochester Windsports.
