I don't know what you are talking about, I've gotten in 6 days lit on a 12, and 3 lit on a 7 in the last 2 weeks, hehe. I'm back in madison for the day, then heading for michigan for a week, later

Hot, Humid, Mosquitoes.....
At least there's the start of the NFL season...
Otherwise late july and august in Wisconsin is almost worse than January!

go on a wind vacation in august.

Greg and Andy have rode every day. I've windsurfed 6 out of 8 days on a 4.2 (analgous to a 9m kite). There are no mosquitoes, and even if there were, it's too windy for them to land.
Truth be told the gorge isn't the best place to kite in the overall kiting scheme of things.(gusty, limited launches, crowded at times), but the oregon coast has wide open beaches, so does the michigan side of lake michigan, and hatteras, and padre.

By the way:
Greg has been impressive from all reports. 30 foot boosts off the river and in the ocean with smmooove touch down landings.If you can deal with the gusty winds and tight spaces of the midwest, it appears that you should be well skilled to rip most places in the world.
