There's a few of us heading to Washington Park for kiting with buggies and landboards. Come on out if you want to fly. Welcome to use my Ozone Kites and buggies.

I'll be out there around 12 or 1. Jason will be there even earlier with his Ozone Manta, land board and buggy. Some more of the crew coming too. Looking forward to seeing all of you!

We started this cause we're going out tonight!

Winds might be a little light for beginner riding. Body draggin perhaps might be the order of the day for ya!

I'll be leaving for Washington Park in a bit for a little land action!

Wind too light and parks too crowded today for me.

Good luck to all of you in search of wind!

Hey is Keegs meter messing up seems to be the only one not showing wind not to mention the air temp is at 66F while all others are in the 80's. Unless there is something cooky weather wise going on?

... not to mention Sheboygan where quite a few guys ended up, probably too excited to write here before they did... 10+ kites on the water. But the way, what a pretty place, a big smokestack only on one side... And the drive from Chicago north side wasn't half bad

I took out the ultimate light wind gear...... My Hobie 16. Enough breeze to occasionally fly a hull. Sweet day!
