I’m happy to announce the birth of a 2nd generation Michigan Dawn Patrol kiteboarder. I’m looking forward to the day my son, Charlie James, can join me on Lake Michigan. And maybe someday pick us up at the end of downwinders(hey, he’s gotta earn that allowance somehow!).

Looking forward into this year Matt will be going on a kiting trip to Costa Rica this February and I’ll be taking a family vacation a little closer by in Lido Key in April. We’ll have some pictures and stories to share I’m sure. Then it’s the start of the local kiteboarding season. I’m hoping the water levels retreat to give us some beach back and that we have a warm, windy season. Good winds and have great 2017!

Jeff learned to windsurf as a kid on the coast of Lake Michigan in Manistee and has been addicted to wind sports ever since. He took up kiteboarding after moving back to West Michigan in 2008.
