Re: Sun 12/5

I was hoping for a bit more east in the mix to wing at SSYC, but too much south. Going to try back yard for a while as ice all gone, but wind falling so might be a bust for me. After today I expect ice to reform when wind falls, and looks cold then for a while. Two weeks until Maui for me, so today ...

Re: Thursday 12/2

Ice in Muskego pretty much gone, SSYC Sunday worth peeking at... Saw Big Joe today (Sat) and he was watching it, but as I am not an AM kind of guy, wind and direction in PM is all I am looking at.

Re: Sun 28th

Yes, Muskego area ice too thin, quit after quickly going through a couple times. Need a bit more consistent cold air…

Re: Tue Nov 23

At 1:00 back yard had beautiful SW wind around 20 knots, so I got dressed and ready to launch. Then wind dropped like a rock before I even got wet. Better than getting out and then stranding me I guess…. But that 50 degree surprise would have been nice, though once again half of Little Muskego ice c...

Re: Sun 21 Nov

Got immersed in Van Gough this afrernoon, which was nice enough, but kept wishing I was immersed in Muskego…

For the record, your peak winds arond 4ish were near 50 mph according to my guage in back yard. ;)

Re: Tue 16th

By this morning ice is pretty much gone again, but expect given water temp a still day with freezing temps will restart the process. Jeff is right pretty much, but if I go back through posts through the years I am sure I have ridden a lot of ice even in December, tough sometimes we are well into Jan...

Re: Tue 16th

Should have joined you at Bradford, went in back yard and struggled through light air for half hour before packing it up. Of course wind picked up later. Hate gloves while winging, very tiring under all circumstances vs kiting, and my back yard had ice over a fair share of lake.

Re: Friday 11/12

Look over shoulder and spot landing, esecially important if landing is not water.

Re: Friday 11/12

My backroll tip: never try too close to shore until you master it. Landed one at SSYC years ago practically on the beach - about the time I pretty much stopped jumping with kites…. Fortunately kicked off board at last second and sort of landed running before sand-draging. I forget who I was kiting w...

Re: Wednesday 11/10

I too snuck in an early session today in my back yard, might be last 50 degree air session of season. Took advantage of south wind, as it turned west I had to get off the water. There has been ice in water a couple recent mornings, so unlike the big pond the inland water is getting chilly.

Re: Sat Nov 6

Great day in back yard, but wind coming down now. Bonnie's lack of enthusiasm for donning her drysuit kept me home but had best possible wind direction.

Re: Sat Nov 6

S/W 12-16 right now in Muskego, I’m thinking of stealing a morning session in back yard before afternoon at Silver. Swamp should be working…. Air temp about to cross 50, maybe no gloves today!

Re: Friday 11/5

Hi Sean, lake Andria good place to play on a day like today, worst case is a walk around the lake. Jeff - sorry I did not make it back to Bradford, looked like great winging conditions, but my obligations forced me to steal a session in my back yard. With lake lowered a couple feet for winter, I had...
