Looks like it is going to be a nice day tomorrow. Looking at heading to Lake street for a good part of the day. Hope to see lots of familiar faces.

MC looks pretttttty classic fall westerly. Most wind is going to concentrate in that corner so b lookin for the local team to run the shores. Does not look to be any of the NW from last week so should be one of those big , spaced out, stacked wave spectacles I wait all year for. parking lot front and center.

Lake st beach is closed with construction. Miller looks good, but no one is here. Is anyone coming to Miller?

Ben did end up at Miller and we had a pretty good session. I'm not ready for 6 foot waves so it worked out though there were times with my 10m I could barely get over the waves and others I could hardly hold it down fully depowered. It was good to get on the water!
