Tomorrow 6/1

Postby asawyer » Thu May 31, 2012 9:12 am

Looks like we could hit mid-low 20's tomorrow afternoon. Anyone care to join me at Miller? I am planning on swinging by for a few hours around 1PM or so on my way down south to the lake house in IN.

I might just be down for that! Couldn't get there till round 3pm though. Miller was pretty sweet on Tuesday when I was there. BTW what lake is your lake house on?

Right on. I will be there all afternoon as long as it is blowing. We have a place on Chapman Lake and my parents are about two miles from Winona Lake (both in Kosciusko County.) I am going to try to get a "first kite" in on one of those two lakes with a SUP and a 15m in the lighter wind conditions Saturday.

gonna be a good N blow tomorrow.....the hankies will be coming out!!!!!!!! :wink: looks to be cranking up and down, east and west....use caution and have fun.

I will be checking out the bottom of the lake early, prob Casino, and then might head over towards St joe or Da haven chasing the thunder..........keegs has a chance of going offshore, although zion might hold it if it stays N for awhile.........

Ben,If you need to use wave high readings from a buoy use NOAA,not ikitesurf,,have fun!

The wind was a solid 18 knots when we arrived there. There were only two of us, but we enjoyed our time out there in the steadily dropping winds and SERIOUS chop.

Made my first Michigan downwind run of the year with John Lynch, the Crowdpleaser, Flamesquasher Rick and Da Haven crew......ran the shoreline from South Haven to St. Joe. Good at both ends, a little spotty in between, and when the pizza was being shared off TG's tailgate, it was all smiles. :D

Great to get Greg back in action, we shared a few waves and a ton of hollering as we headed on down the coast........we just wish the Sheriff was there to share in the fun!!!! :wink:
