Kayaking Squam Lake ice on April 5th, 2020. We paddled from Deephaven to Five Finger Point, made our way through ice sheets to Loon Island and then around Long Island, meeting up with friends at Utopia. The ice sheets were two to four inches thick, getting weaker and pushed around by the light wind during our 6.75 mile paddle. The reflections were beautiful, here are some photos from my GoPro Hero8 camera.

Kitewing Squam Powder Ski
Kitewing Powder Skiing on Squam Lake with Rudy and Pat on 2.18.18. The 5.5 Dacron with carbon fiber frame handled the gusty northwest wind and we had fresh tracks all day long! GoPro Video by Eric Morse. Stove Up by Tricky Britches.
Kitewing Squam Tour 01.25.18
Great day for a Kitewing Tour on Squam Lake with Martin Kimbell and Pat Furr. I sailed the new 4 Point 6 Kitewing and love the way it gybes on reaches and tacks upwind. I toured 70.6 miles in 5 hours with a max speed of 46.3 mph. Martin and I had a great series of gybes going down wind along Great Island and came back up wind on the east side of the island. The 4.6 climbed upwind like a knife’s edge cutting through the wind.
Best Day Ever, Again
Kitewing Sailing on Lake Winnipesaukee with Martin, Rudy, and Tod. We launched from Ellacoya State Park and sailed around Welch Island into the Broads to Cow Island and over to Gilford Bay. The ice was very smooth after the heavy rain on Friday and the wind was howling as we sailed our 3.0, 4.0 and 4.6 Kitewings. Incredible conditions made for a super fun tour around the big lake. Another one of the best days ever, again. Long Day by Tricky Britches. GoPro video by Eric Morse.
