Sheboygan will will be windy tomorrow. We had really nice wind today in the afternoon. Crew out on 11 and 13 meter kites, with smooth wind near shore. Only thing I would worry about here tomorrow is the hot air over the cold lake. Water off shore today was cold, booties needed still, near shore water warm. So we could see strong gusty wind near shore and nothing outside or great wind..... Regardless there will be wind.

Worked late today so I never got the chance to ride, but the wind was much lighter then I thought given the forecasts. Saw alittle east in the wind around 9 which is never good. Neighbor said the fog was bad in the early afternoon as well. Though I did see a few people riding for a bit from my place when I got home on big kites with the wind meter showing 20.

The wind was great once the fog cleared out. It was blowing a solid 20 on the outside from about 11-5.
