Be careful out there.... WGN morning forcast called for 40-50 mph gusts...dont end up in a tree or roof. However if you boost big enough you will end up in Lake Michigan... :shock:

I can't imagine Wolf being fun on a day like this (shutters). The gusts have nearly broken my back before and it's just a straight rodeo the whole time. Hey, a bad time in the water is still a better time then in the office

Only Ben and I kiting today. We had a great time. Gusty but constantly enough for my 8m. Ben was on 7m and didn't seem unhappy to say the least.. I'm definitely back there tomorrow.

Wolf really delivered. great time at list. :D
was gusty but not so bad, it was not surviving for sure. I was riding 7 m all day, there were moment of strong wind around 40+ kts. later around 4 got to 50 kts and back down to 40 kts. Wolf meter is off as allway.
Wolf got waves 2-3 ft. high but norht flats were smooth
as i was leaving around 7 Pm 2 more kiters showed up, one was on 9 and one on 8

Hey Ben it's Kevin yeah I was chatting with you as I was rigging up my 9m.

Rode from 6:30 to 8 with Ark (sp?), a little gusty of course but not as bad as I thought. I was not overpowered, in spite of what that Chi crib sensor was showing it was not near that strong at Wolf when I was out. If it's really blowing in the 30's I am overpowered on my 9 and that was not the case today. Not sure I have an explanation for that.

Hope to get back for after work sesh maybe tomorrow and Wednesday
