Hello all, I am sad to announce that this past week we lost a windsurfing Brother. Dean Quarnstrom of DeKalb Passed away this week while on his winter get away in Cocoa Beach Florida (Banana River resort) where we windsurf. Dean has been going there for years to sail and R/R Dean is a fellow windsurfer with me and Mike&Bob at Shabbana lake We have logged many sessions there in the past 10 years together and we will miss him Dearly. Rest in peace Dean. I hope there is a Lake in Heaven.
Hello Ried, could you add this location to the weather page please, I ran across this area several weeks ago and looks like a great place to sail I contacted the Jackson county park district and they told me that windsurfing was permissible but knows no one who has Its called Driscolls Island an and is located in Sabula Iowa. Its just off the Mississippi river but their is no current. Could launch at the Island or the entire east shore has access

Reid FillmanIts NOAA Point Forecast is added to the Weather page. It looks like a great speed ditch/freestyle spot when the wind funnels up or down the river valley.
Hello Ried, Could you Add Rock Cut State Park (Pierce Lake) to the Weather Page Please, Was there today did some Kayaking very nice Lake just past Rockford on Interstate 90 Definitely could sail there
on most wind directions not sure about North or South will need to check out. East & West looks good kinda short tac but due ableI If north/South works would have nice long runs.
