I will be there around 3:30, can't make it any sooner.
Just came back from SPI with Maly (Mario), we didn't have a single really windy day out of 9 so I hope to make up for it.
But it looks both Wed and Thu might be good.

Ben,
I hope it will work out for you. With the winds veering from SW to NW (if the forecast is correct), you might have a few hours of directly onshore, howling wind, and swells to come with it in SJ, that's what made me think Miller might be slightly less brutal. We'll see tomorrow though, will try to call you before you hit the water

Ended up on Wolf Lake, with 2 other kiters, and at least 10 windsurfers. Not a bad choice, it turned out, gusty, sure - but plenty of wind for my 12m (sometimes pretty close to tea-bagging, actually), some big jumps (for me, that is), and even most of them landed. Romantic sunset over the power lines, water still warm enough to go without booties, made up for these light days in SPI, still feeling high as a kite, without any controlled substances...
Hopefully Miller works out for tomorrow - or do you guys think St. Joe would be better?
