The lake is just beautiful - probably could have gotten away without a wetsuit, but I didn't want to be discouraged from falling in. Schlogged around on the JP enjoying the scenery while my dad tried out his "new" 6.4. He thought it was great and so light since he had been using a really old 6.8 with cams that was a bear to uphaul. I took his kit out for a spin when he was done and tried some helitacks, but I found the rig to be quite heavy and unmanagable since I haven't used larger than a 5.2 in years. Kai swam out to where I was helping my dad get a beach start and got on the board for a bit. She loves Michigan.
