I'll be in Sheboygan early afternoon. Forecast looks prime.

So much red on the radar right now by Sheboygan it looks like they are getting clubbed like baby seals on the ice. Hope you got some riding before the storms. Maybe we'll get some riding after the front passes through.

Yesterday was good at McKinely on my new Frankenfoil. Bradford to Bummerfest and all points in between with a 10m Aluula.

I'm going to take my chances that the wind comes back south after the storm passes. Will post up when I get to Sheboygan. Should be right around 2:00 p.m.

Oh yeah and I wanted to let everybody know that I stopped by McKinley this morning with the kids and there was a big fat red flag up on the beach indicating that bacteria counts are high in the water. Very surprised as we haven't had any rain this week. Not sure what it's all about but the water has definitely turned as it's much cooler than last week's.

No wind on the shore in Sheboygan. You can see it out a ways but still a little cloud cover from storm that needs to clear

Couple nice hours of wing foiling in my back yard this afternoon, more boat traffic than I like but not as bad as it can be. Bonnie's wing skills are improving, but she could not resist going out and shredding on her windsurfer after wing session. Good day!!

Sheyboygan was good. Got out for about an hour after the storm cleared. Good surfboard session on a 10m.

Then wind died a second time when sun came out. Waited 30 min and it was back on. Weird day but decent wind all in all.

Bacteria at McKinley beach was probably from gulls and/or geese. It's usually just very near shore (according to the guys at the water lab), so just don't drink the water until you're out of the little bay and you should be OK. It looked like McKinley would have been a great place to ride yesterday. Today as well. More wind later in the afternoon according to the forecast I looked at. I'm teaching today, so will just watch the kites from a distance (unless somebody rides inside the harbor to entertain us).
