Sailboat. Standup Paddleboard. Beer.

All things that get me through the light days.

Hey I guess if we'll talk about this subject, what si the best time to plan a week long trip to only kite board on the Lake. I will have some extra vacation time this year and I want to take a full week and just kitesurf anywhere from Sheboygan to Michigan. What would be the best dates to do it? I have a full dry suit, but I'd rather stay a little warm and have company.

July Windless? You guys are going to hate us but… We’ve been averaging 2-3 days a week this month. Got out twice this week for a couples hours each session, one on a 16 and the other rocking on a 12 meter. The beginning of July is always much better than latter half, with Sheboygan one day earlier this month having almost 50 kites on the beach and lots more smiles. No doubt the next few weeks is a bad time to be a kiter.

Tomorrows moving day for Rayna and I as we’re heading back to Myanmar for the year. Hard to believe our two months here are done. Man what a summer we had. After traveling both coasts of SE Asia for wind last year I got to say North Eastern Wisconsin has that region beat in my opinion. Not just for wind but for riding conditions and options. Got to love it up here. What we are lacking in warm tropical waters is more than made up for me by the great people that I get the chance to hang and ride with. Especially our rag-tag local crew and the few of you that have become come long distance locals. Going to miss everyone and the great times shared. We’ll be back next July and when the internet’s not blocked by the government I’ll be sure to stay in touch. Hope the wind blows in August for everyone. I’m heading into the heart of Monsoon season and kiting only on vacations. Going to miss my spot here on the water. Andrew
