Montrose flat water? Wind coming over the headland. Or a beach further north?

Been watching Monday for quite a while. Probably hitting up Sheboygan with a crew from Madison.

Assuming it comes through as strong as forecasted, Monday will be a day of pure bliss at Keegs. Flat, cold water. Best days at Keegs on anything S.

Suit up, boys and girls! (That's a Neil Patrick Harris reference if it wasn't clear).

The sheriff, his deputies and a wild and crazed gang of his rag tailed possums rounded up all the wayward waves wandering towards Canadian waters and decimated them in fine fashion....there were a few scraggly "young uns" that managed to escape being decapitated, but they died a lonely death on the beach of the Sheboygan Power Plant...the echoes of the chant LONG LIVE THE SHERIFF will reverberate through the centuries along those hallowed shores!!

not sure how waukeegan had some super long, shoulder plus waves, throwing full power inbetween the piers but me and Artem were in awe. interesting setup and cant see how that would happen but that even trumps some north wind deals.

almost straight onshore wind earlier in the day produced the waves and then switch to S/SSE around 2.30pm made it fun to ride them
