I'm going to try to get out on the water around 11 before it gets too crazy. Anyone else planning to go early? I know it's going to be rippin in the afternoon, but I want to get some time in the smoother water too.
Where is the best place to setup? I know Marquette Park is cheaper parking than the end of Lake Street, but I'd rather be near where the rest of the kiteboarders are.

For those of you that haven't kited in 35 knot plus directly on-shore and 12 to 16 foot waves... walk up to a basketball hoop and look up...then add another four feet or so above the rim. That's what could be coming at you. If you bail and your kite gets in a wave, you will be pulled under. If you get detatched from your kite and board, rip currents will be pulling you all over the place.
Only you know your abilities and comfort level...respect the lake.
