Here is the Sheboygan near shore info.

Wow, crib showing 50s gusting to 60s now, do not see that often. If you're out there, be safe, and take some footage.

I posted this already under the video section. 4 of us made it out in Sheboygan, but the launch was side off and sketchy as all hell and we had no beach due to high waters. Super hard to get out safely. I've been super busy lately and working on posting actual pics and vids soon, but it's much harder to do so on forums than straight to FB.

Well, I kited from 1130 till 1:15 at montrose. Absolutely overpowered on the 8m. Barely held that shit down. Waves were decent but sloppy. Heres a couple of phone pics that Micayla took!
