I'm most definitly in for tomorrow! To recount my phenominally unpredictable experience, I was peering off shore with my binoculars from Lake st. beach texting Mike there was not a white cap in site and before he could text me back, ripples covered the once calm lake and the wind started to build. It went from 10 to 15 mph straight from the West and so I pumped up my 13m then it cranked around from Chicago and built to what felt like 30+. I didn't even pump up my 9 at first since I was the only one there but know Mike was on his way. Then dipped down to 25+ from the North and I couldn't wait anymore. I had about 2 hours of the best 9 meter flat Lake Michigan water conditions I've ever had. I'm going to have wet dreams just thinking about it.
