    Sad story. I think I met the guy once at a boat lunch, very nice guy.

    This is one more reason not to ski alone as, anything can happen on the water...

    He was actually with a group of friends.
    Here is an earlier story with more details.

    That's what I had initially read too. When I ride with people I am aware of where everyone is and no one is left behind. I don't know the situation if they lost site of him, etc. It's very tragic and my hopes are that they find him safe.

    Makes me rethink about a nice bright life jacket for me when riding out on the big lake (not that it may have helped any in this case).
    Thoughts go out to him and his family.

    If anything this makes you want to ONLY wear USCG approved life vests.

    With the bright strobe light!! That's an absolute must above all. Flir will pick that up miles away if day becomes night if stranded.

    Not sure how the waves were on Lake Michigan over the weekend but if they were anything like we had on Erie, I would not be out there, no matter how experienced of a rider I was.

    Absolutley tpd, I was so surprised to hear that people were out in the waves over the weekend. They had to have been 10-15's easily. And these aren't like ocean waves either where you can catch a break, there just one after another. I can easily see how if someone wen't down in the waves, they would be lost in a second. I dont even understand how they would be fun...there just huge whitecaps...
