Variable winds less than 10 kt becoming northeast. Scattered showers...mainly this morning. Waves 2 ft or less.
Northeast winds 5 to 10 kt becoming southwest after midnight. Partly cloudy. Waves 1 ft or less.
Southwest winds 10 to 20 kt. Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Waves building to 1 to 3 ft.
Sunday Night
Northwest winds 10 to 20 kt increasing to 20 to 25 kt. Partly cloudy. Waves 1 to 3 ft building to 3 to 5 ft in the late evening and overnight. A Small Craft Advisory will likely be needed.

No response only because you could see for yourself how the forecast got downgraded, and then the storms rolled in.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look any better for today...
Until next time then, and I'm sure many folks will take you up on your offer

Welcome back...........although you can kite Lake Geneva, Delavan and Silver lake....the kiting is much better around Milwaukee, over in Madison and up in Sheboygan. There are solid crews kiting those areas, and quite regularly I might add.

Just get ready to do a little travelin' to get the good winds. Happy kiting and look forward to meeting you at the beach.

Snowkiting can be good around Geneva come winter.... 8)
