So far looking good! Ikitesurf talks about 22mph wind all day and around 40 degrees. WindAlert is talking about gusts up to 40mph! Not sure how to believe WindAlert anymore. Windfinder 18 knots for the day. Ehhh think the only way to get this straight is to drive out on Sunday.
Ill be there early around 9.30 or so for a early morning session. Hope some one else will be joining that early for a great day of wind
Wait for this storm to pass today and then we'll see how the wind behind it is forming. I've mentioned this before, but models don't work when a storm is coming through. Experience and a meteorologist that posts up will have a better sense of what's behind that storm.
Going to be the early bird. Heading out around 9AM should be at Waukegan around 9.30. We should get some sunshine tomorrow! 9 meter and smaller kite weather. Finally get to try my new board! And first water experience of the GoPro!!!

Where did you end up?...Nevermind I saw it was Keegs. Glad you got a session in....the sun is bright and the wind is right!
Snowkiting was fun. Perfect snow to build kickers. Stopped by waukegan on way home but did not look epic enough to justify going in coldwater and starting to shift offshore. Would have been cool to ride snow and water in same day haha :P
