Sauble Beach Kite Jam Report from Brandon Scheid

Between Hurricane Earl and our impromptu trip to Washington D.C, and the Sauble Kite Jam it’s been a busy few weeks. The report from the Great White North is a good one, I’ve been having a blast up here.
It started with a pickup from Buffalo from fellow LF Team rider Craig Cunningham. We headed from the airport straight to Sauble beach, the drive is about four and a half hours so we were glad to arrive at Sam’s cottage.
Chuck at LTR, BCS, Eric R, and Sam were already there after hearing about the last few days we all headed off to bed. The wind was howling all night, good signs for the up-coming weekend. The next morning we got up and headed off to one of the most popular kite spots in Ontario, Oliphant.
It consists of two large flat water bays, the bottoms are sandy and very shallow. The spot looked like it had a ton of potential, but unfortunately the wind was light. We still managed to score about 45 min of powered riding before the wind died. I was on my 12m Envy and was very pleased with the low end of the kite.
After our session we headed back to the cottage to help the crew finish up some slider work for the next days event. Watching the sunset over the lake was a fitting way to end the day!
After the session Craig, BCS, Dave Tran, Chuck at LTR, and I all headed back to Long Point to hopefully score a session the next day. We showed up to Craigs secret spot in Long Point, the Long Point Slicks. The spot is amazing, its a flat water slick surrounded by marsh grass on all sides. You have to take a boat through a secret path to get to the spot. It was great to be powered on a kite in flat water again.
