Planning on being at Miller (Marqutte Park) early tomorrow to teach lessons. Feel free to text me for a conditions report and I'll try to get back to you. Excited about possibly having some wind and hoping to see you there!

Happy Kiting!

Looks like it is going to switch more North early afternoon.....get it early before it goes onshore if that is the case. Otherwise you will prob be skimming the shoreline!!

why drive so far when it'll switch to North at around 2 or 3. I'm gonna head to either zion or montrose.

I'm gonna head to montrose. Its very doable even if its NW which it probably won't be. If it'll have any west in it then it will be a very slight NNW.

Heading to Miller now for a land lesson. Hopefully I'll ride with everyone when it switches to side/on shore. Will update Maurice with conditions when I get there.

Along with the other posted updates, this is what I'm seeing now.
