Waukegan / Zion- looks like it's picking up a bit.

Montrose- If you're tempted by the flat water, launch from the BIRD area end of the beach. Opposite from normal. Have a buddy and have a rope or a reel leash. It's teasy to be lured out and have the wind swing more to the south. Make a plan to get towed in if you cant get back to shore. Im not sure if ou can stand next to the seawall to the west and it gets very choppy in there.

The meter/forecast isn't showing much at all at Montrose. But thst means nothing if it's anything like the other day. Can anyone confirm wind?

I hope no one was out in that yesterday. It was all T-Storming and shit. As for why not Sat? It was misty with low visibility and I'm a wimp. Went for a nice hike at Zion though. :)

Misty?A little,but nothing for word of concern,maybe Zion looked different.Clean,steady NE a mile off shore..

About two years ago,we did kite once at Boygan with Sheriff and BRO crew,wind was sitting on the outside,but in the thick fog,that you can only see kiter going in and out.Once you get in,you hear your buddies shouting around,but cant see no one :lol: :shock:'


You never know what you gonna get at Sheobygan!
