Jumping on ice.

Or over ice. I got a good session on Tuesday on Lake Erie, even though there is still a lot of ice out there.

Saul…that's awesome. Love the icebergs floating all over for some good boosting. No-one else to join you? I've been out 4 times in Madison where the lake is till 99% ice covered, but we have a river that flows into one of our lakes and makes for great riding right next to the ice. Or on it if fins are taken off.

Here's a video of the first day and one of the second day.

BTW…how did you rotate your line mount footage?

And….vids showed up as links.

Tried 10 times to get the video box to show. How?

Vimeo link with the vid pasted in-between didn't work. Just the numbers pasted in-between didn't work.

Help?

Saul,
That is sweet! I grew up in NW Ohio so your Lake Erie kite adventures have a special place in my heart-

We were doing the opposite yesterday: kiting a foot of fresh powder jumping the bits of open water where the creeks run in.
Cheers,
MH

This is not me but shows how we do combined ice and water kiting. Sometimes you tip over. :)
