Sheboygan Sat. 12th

Postby Northerner » Fri Nov 11, 2011 9:20 am

Looks like we will have another great weekend of south wind riding this weekend. Many parts of the northern half of the lake will be firing.

As a heads up, sheboygan will rock tomorrow with the wind being rideable around 11:46 am and going until dark (4:35). Water until 2 should smooth with waves coming in after that. Thats my 2 cents.

I have been watching a heavy line of white caps on the outside for over an hour. They have been getting closer to shore. The wind is blowing SSW here right now and will suck in as the day heats up. I'm going to stick to my original prediction of 11:46. Midafternoon we will be on 11 meter kites.

So Yes I think it would be worth it.

Total bust here in sheboygan today. Wind stuck to its pattern perfectly and then left us around 1:30. Locals were pumping up to side on 20 plus around 11:30-11:45. Wind went off shore again alittle after noon. Came back around 12:30 and 6 of us went out on 11-12 meter kites. Wind line was rocking just off shore. After 20 minutes it started to peel away. Rode for another 20 minutes and limped in. Big surprise to everyone considering the forecast and the set up, not to mention the wind readings. Tough luck artem and henry, hope you ended up getting it good closer to home
