Are you sure you didn't start to miss the cold Spring Indiana coastline carving on big ol' freshy and big air gusty boosts on lil' stinky :lol:
Looks perfect at those spots you mentioned. What's the season for wind and how's your surfing?... Kiting and cold beer isn't the same without the SkyDaddy...

Season is year round. Had an unusual 3 weeks without steady wind, but even that means you'll get one or two days a week on 8-10m. Surfing gets unreal when the wind dies and the island comes alive with some amazing wave riders. SUPping is getting very big here too...

Waves usually come early september through end of april before it goes flat with 20knt trades that blow months on end. Foiling is HUGE here and they ride all day everyday. Im even looking to get one after wave season!

I do miss the downwinders with the boys for sure and I'm looking forward to coming home this summer for a couple weeks of vacation. Ill bring a bag of wind with me and we'll share a few sodas. Aloha from Maui!

I'd be living on the water on a board if I were you... Tried my hand is paddle surfing this year on Lake Michigan and the good days are few and far between. Any Paddle Surfboard recommendation that are good for carving waves?
