Gonna do some trolling for some ridable conditions manana..........meeting Jens and the Sheriff up in Sheboygan and see if it is kitable at all!!!!

Safety first.....might take a look at Two Rivers when it turns SW....the waves there should be quite substantial. Gotta double bungee my door for sure!! :)
