I think you should go to your profile settings, then scroll down to the time zone setting. I had the same problem till I've fixed it from there.

Just a thought :wink:

O.K. Here's what "going off" means so far today: Probably 15 kts to start; Then down to barely-powered-on-13. O.K I'll just have to sit on the beach with friends & neighbors and drink beers till it comes back up...bummer.

I hit the water on my Hobie 16 super powered today. Hulls were rarely in the water and spent a lot of time on the wire. Hobie is the answer for those light breeze days.

Miller was great today! at least for a newbie like me.... Made some good progress and it was awesome not having to wear a wetsuit.

Barely-powered-on-13..lmao..Yup,we were watching you guys why you flying those big kites:)Lake street is always much better,then Marguete downwind of it..I didnt even saw much of whitecaps when I was looking downwind..That said,I rode 12m from 10 to 2pm and after that we switch to 8m and Pier to 7.5 and rode till 6pm,thats how nucking it was!!!!!!Hammering winds,bordshorts,mannnnnn...that meter couldn't be more f....ed up at Miller than already is.Its showing 15 gusting to 30-35 and even WSW,well it was 25kn+ and WNW if not NW after 2pm..

Aloha and hope to get more days like this!

I got a great session in a Montrose. WNW makes all the difference and it's not gusty. 12Meter, only one, TONS of people and even boats hanging out watching the action.

What a surprise on the wind though. I thought it would end up just being a light day but it was going off. Tomorrow looks light, but who knows it could go off again, just check the meters: http://www.sailflow.com/windandwhere.iw ... meoffset=0

Chilin,tmr is forecast for super light NE,but remember this since this is going to get you riding in the summer!

For NE the best spot is Waukegan..,direction is from NW to NE(good) to E-bad...probably meter will go to like 15 once its switch to NE and than it will be dying..In the summer we are waiting on the beach all rig up waiting for that NE for couple hours to get in,because in the day like tmr. the first peek is the stongest,usually :wink:
