Strong SW tomorrow.

The closest Lake Michigan place that works on a SW is Weko, right?

WARNING WARNING WILL ROBINSON.... TODAY IS NOT TODAY!

Postby skysurfr » Tue Sep 21, 2010 8:56 am

I am trying to access the Near Shore Fct for the Michigan side. Whilst the Chicago side is updated for "today", the Michigan side still has yesterday mornings fct. "Today" is yesterday! If you keep reading, you'll see that tomorrow is Tuesday, which is actually TODAY!

The readings on the wind meter look way off though...

I'm betting Muskegon is going off too but I'm stuck in the office till late today >:(

Hit Muskegon and a spot a bit North.....hoocheemama!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saw a bunch of guys riding surfboards, wind was 20+, waves head-high+....nice riding, but as I was coming out of a bottom turn, smacking a lip, floating to the next section, and lining up another one to nail....I kept wondering.....WHY?

Long live the twin-tip, and those who worship it!!!!!! 8) ALL HAIL THE BRO...................

Wind a little light but fun day at S Haven yesterday. Flattest water I've ever seen on Lake Michigan.

I'd never been, always figured too far of a drive. Got there in basically 2 hours from here (~Lincoln Park), awesome. Beautiful wide beach, good crew.
