SSE winds look good at Waukegan on Wed. from 11 am - 4 ish. Anyone going? I plan to be there after noon. I'm a newbie to the forum, so say hi if you see a red/black airush lithium 12m.

Wondering how the keegs is right now. Blowing 19kts @ 180 deg south. If I remember correctly last time these winds came through it was really punchy. Any feedback?!

Some feedback would be really good. Don't want to drive if it is offshore or really gusty.

Just drove past Wolf (wish I could have stopped) and saw 6 kiters having some fun and a handful of windsurfers.

Thanks for the feedback. In that case, glad I chose to ride my bicycle home from work 25.3 miles :-)

It closed at 5:30 so they could add a drainage culvert. Bumber as it was of the chains honkin good wind with butter flat water kicking up a bit as the day went on. Finaly dialed in the coarse board today. Even pulled of a jibe. Bit punch at times but not to bad. It was fairly consistant a bit of a hole at the end of the pier. Rounded the chanell marker bell bouy. Good times.
