Saturday 9/26

I don't Sheboygan will turn onshore unless the sun comes out. Delavan or The Bagel?

Also trying to figure out where to ride today, some thoughts for the collective experience out there:

1) How much does Sheboygan need to turn in order to work? It looks like it will be South with a touch of East
2) How about Racine today
3) Will Delevan work with that much south?

Sheboygan works when other places don't because of a thermal wind. It only works when it is totally sunny. Even high, thin clouds dampen it. Strong fronts that cause wind work regardless there. Racine is pretty much as off shore as Milwaukee. Delevan is gusty in any direction but too much south is worse. The Bagel seems like the best choice so far, but this whole day might turn out to be underwhelming. Sounds like yesterday was THE day.

My reliable wind meter here in Muskego has sw-wsw 8-15 right now, and NOAA has that building during the day to 15-25. So, I will be enjoying my back yard on Little Muskego with Bonnie as long as I can last, but certainly Big Muskego will be a great place to play for those who can keep their kite out of the water. Pretty sore today though!

It looks like Sheboygan is on.
Is South Rideable?

At Bradford now. Wind is blowing slightly onshore and has just picked up in the last 5 mins. Pretty busy but there is a spot north of the second tiki bar where it’s wide open from pedestrians. There’s a bloke called Joseph (from Kenosha) who has a 12m set up on the beach and is waiting for the wind to pick up. Seems to be building but I’m not sure if it will hold.

Somewhere between good enough and awesome at home today, couple hours with 5m wing for me today. Still struggling with completing jibe on foil, slow learner I guess. But since that means I have to re-pump back to foil, guess the good news is my skills at getting back on foil quickly developing that much better. Bonnie still enjoying the warm water/air while she works on her wing skills, next week it gets chilly!

It picked up at Bradford- fun afternoon with BBR on big kites, with lots of air.

Glad you guys got some. JV, your increased skill at pumping back up on a foil reminds me that I became very good at waterstarts while windsurfing because it took me so long to learn to do high speed jibes! :lol:
