Session 12 of the 2018 season: A Classis Skate Kite session at South River Road DNR

Fun skate session with Tim, 12M and Don, 8M foil. Had to search for clean, smooth ice. Found some out always and rode there for quite awhile. First time skate kiting with fellow skaters.
Set up a slalom course and figure eight course. Mucho fun session with sunny, warm, 35 degrees. Perfect wind speed and direction.
20 miles of skate kiting

TOB:   Skate Kite from 1:00-3:00
Gear:   Hockey skates and a 3M 2 line foil kite 
Surface conditions: Rough ice but after exploring upwind a good size plate of black ice was found. A dusting of snow fell during the night and remained on the ice through the day.
Wind: 10-20 SSE direction
Weather:  Bluebird day 35 degrees
Highlights: A fun day joined by fellow skate kiters Tim and later om Don. Rode 20 miles on the hockey skates.
