MI DawnPatrol Website

I don't know how I missed this website for so long but thought I would share:
http://midawnpatrol.com/where-to-ride/

There is a ton of good intel on where to ride, wind forecasts, launch areas, and hazards.
I used this site and caught a great session in Pentwater on Monday. N-NW wind, 20-25 kts. Slightly onshore with great waves!

The beaches in N Michigan seem to be quite small this year due to lake levels and or erosion. There also seems to be more debris on the beaches and that has been wreaking havoc on my kites. I have been noticing small pin holes on the canopy by wing tips which are probably caused when rolling kite over during self launch (please do not self launch or land unless you are a very experienced rider).

Thanks to the fellas who put this site together. It appears they are part of the Bro-Nation so hope to see you all riding in Pure MI soon!

Please keep our MI beaches safe and clean!

Nice find. I have this one bookmarked as well. It's a great webcam of Kanaha. Tons of windsurf/kiteboarding activity.
