Seeing nice caps out on the water now and looking like a perfect forecast for sheboygan to get its blow on today.

Prediction: Riding by 11:45 starting on a 13 and moving down to an 11 around 1-2ish. Wind will blow until 5:30ish

On that friday me and a friend were camping up in sleeping bear dunes near traverse city. Found an awesome spot in sleeping bear bay - wind was good starting at like 9am onwards!

Sleeping bear area is one of the nicest areas in the Midwest. Rode that area last August and kicking myself for not getting over there this summer. I would have shot over there this week but family is in town. Again to bad the ferry is so much around $ 320 for two people and car RT.

Last friday brought nice winds on the inside here that had most people on 11- 14 meter kites. Alittle lite at times but the water was warm and the wind smooth. The last three times we have had wind, including this monday on a 5 mph forecast, the wind has been right near shore and around 15-20. Seems now that the cold water is gone the once common and powerful outside wind line is having a hard time making an appearence.
