Hoping I can get out to play. I was thinking maybe Zion or Keegs? What will the consensus be? It should be S to SSE winds http://www.intellicast.com/Local/Hourly.aspx?chart=Wind&day=Tomorrow



It is supposed to be 59' tomorrow. The sun will set by 430. At around 200 it will be 14 - 15 mph

I'm no expert but it seems like it would be good at either. Not as cold tomorrow too. Hoping to head out from the city.

Great day here in sheboygan even though the wind went from 32 to 12 in an hour. Kiting pretty much sucked as the wind fell apart but seeing everyone was great and spirts were high.

Wind rocked until ten and then dropped like a stone. 6 of us started a downwinder, but wind died before everyone could get going. West and I made it around the piers and got into some big cleanish waves by the elbow surf spot. Got it good for a half hour here until we made our way in. Crossing the harbor mouth today with the big waves and crazy cross chop was one of the hardest things I have done strapless. Needed the float of surf board to get me going in the dying wind and did catch a few nice riders, so I got alittle redemption for friday. Later in the afternoon the surfers where riding big sloppy over head waves.

Great seeing everyone, I’m always impressed by how happy some people are after getting skunked. Tell next time….

I'll be damned , for the first time in my short kiting history Kegs was better than Sheboygan on south wind !!! :-) , and it was sweet steady wind, perfect for 14m and later in the afternoon it picked up and it was even better , 6 kites in the air all having fun.
That's it for this year, I'm packing my stuff ,want to remember the last day on the water, see you all on the snow.

That's because it was a SW which most people are afraid of there but has a smoother flow, in my opinion.
