You can skip SH right away..First stop is Holland,more likely WhiteHall for Mi side in that direction of wind,Sheboygan is still in play as well.Let's see where that thundrestrom is heading in early am


@Dutch

SSW is translated to SW for Waukegan..Wind has been quite bad even on S direction this year,very unstable and Big No-No if you taking someone who is learning.

Its gonna be blowing 30~35knots tmr,you can bet Wolf will be nucking and gusting.

Dutch riding on that direction is doable,but you have to got on mind if something happen odds are quickly stacking against you this time of year on side off conditions.I rode that place on direction I can't even speak about here,but its not a kiting, you are watching your back all the time.Plus tmr will be reallyyyyyy windy,Im sure there'll be few riding it anyway.If you'll be taking someone with you who enter this sport just recentlly,think about S direction as your maximum..


that storm is kick ass

Foggy here with SSE winds 15-20, knee high waves. I hope to ride before/between the storms. I'm guessing we will get a few hours of riding in. 8 meter today????

I'm going to russel up the local crew
I'd rather be Rollerblading

Classic sideshore setup at St Joe, MI. Rode till I couldn't ride no more. Butter smooth behind the pier at Tiscornia Park.

SSW at Tisco is side off not side shore.Must have been super glassy ,it always is on S going SSW.



We end up returning to Keegs after roundtrip to Big Muskego.It was surprisingly ok kiting given the day.

That storm did completely destroy plans for HoneyHall,could have been great up there,next time!
