August 20-22, Michigan Side kiting

Who's going where this week? The forecast looks like it could turn out well over the next couple days. I'd be down for carpooling if anyone else is game.

Sheboygan, LSP, Pt Betsie.....all three blew yesterday, will again today, and it will ROCK tomorrow as well....study a map of Lake Michigan and understand the beauty of it's shape, the only Great Lake to run North-South....pay attention to the terrain when at one of these spots and then go over and over the data on days when thermals are created.....

just look at the Sheriff's post several days ago predicting the conditions in Sheboygan, although nowhere was it forecast so high and you begin to understand the depth of knowledge of experienced kiters knowing their local spots..... :wink:

good to hear it Matt, will be up there today with Eroc....prob a dwndr later in day, give you a shout and see if we can meet up!!

Just a little insight for you buddy, hope you get to the some wind Keith, but don't stop short!!!... :D

Thanks West. It's a part of the lake I'm not familiar with, so having as much information as possible is absolutely necessary. Having a knowledgeable buddy as well to go with is good too, but worst case scenario, I meet up with someone on the beach over there. Tomorrow I'm going to try to go all day... if possible.
