Friday 10/9

The usual questions, will there be enough south to ride Bradford? Should I drive all the way to Sheboygan? What about the swamp, Pike, Delevan, or the Bagel?

Got my eye on Bradford as usual. Probably gonna head down around 1ish, pending forecast.

Just stopped by Bradford quickly while running errands. Pretty dead here right now (but not supposed to Pick up for another hour or two). Inland could be stronger. I’m gonna drop back here around 1ish but what is everyone thinking??

BBR, I'm hoping Bradford starts working otherwise I'm stuck in the swamp.

Just arrived at Bradford. Has picked up decently. Wind is parallel to shore, may be slightly off. Seems similar to last week’s conditions in terms of direction but gusts seem stronger onshore

Is Pike rideable on this direction today?

Pike should be good. Right now it's reading low at West Bend (my indicator location), but I suspect that is just a momentary lull. I'll probably get there about 2:30.

Seems like it pushed more offshore just now. BBR, can you confirm?

Almost three hours on the water in my back yard today, winds 15-35 most of the time, though after 2:30 got occasional annoying lulls. 5m wing with 1650 foil on 95L board handled the range nicely. One happy tired old man tonight!! Believe swamp would have been a good call...
