Thought Thanksgiving was it to the season, but Monday looks like it might be it. Will be planning on Keegan for the finale.

Sheboygan had 12 meter wind all day with chest high waves. Rode from 12 until 3:30 including a downwinder from the state park.

Not bad for December 1st
I'd rather be Rollerblading

Hey so Waukegan ended up having kinda light but steady nice wind on Saturday. As darkness came there was one guy on the water we were keeping an eye on, saw him make it to shore way downwind. Anyone have the story? Assume kite just hit water and couldn't relaunch.
