Similar look as Saturday...the wind showed up about 2pm and we rode till dark.
I`m free all day and chasing wind is what I like to do.
Fog and drizzle in Glenview, dew point and temp are the same, be nice if that changed.
I`ll be there around noon.

... I beg your pardon. Looks like your advice may have been sage advice. You have been spared the visit and chaps have gotten good mileage today. You didn't show up there, did ya?!

Don't worry, Mike.
There is always land kiting Dominican Republic style.
All you need is a bike, a driver, and a spotter/groupie on a separate bike.

Indiana crew showed up round 11:30 and rode the fog for a morning sesh at keegs... Weird feeling as you could see "clouds" under your kite and creepy silence as you left the shore and ventured out in to the fog...could make 100=150yrds then the beach disappeared and it was time to tack back in. Stangest stuff I've been in... we all kept an eye on each other and enjoyed the uniqueness... then the wind died for a while only to pick back up and get some more solid riding in late... reflecting back on it, good times with good people...

The Wolf was howling from about 1:30 to sunset getting stronger every 1/2 hour, 9 meter fully powered and pulling in on the front lines at the end. 7 kites and about 10 windsurfers. Over 70 degrees, no hood no gloves no problem!
