I'm bringing my hydrofoil just in case it doesn't turn out like forecast.

At Bradford now as SSYC readings didn’t look good. Seems to be picking up here and is on shore. Gonna wait a few mins though.

Sensors at Sheboygan were way off.
People were foiling & huge kites barely riding when I got there
Handheld meter said 10mph, vs lighthouse 20mph
Barely rideable mid to late afternoon with an 18m soul and door.
Never mind- good light wind practice and a beautiful day.

Hoping Bradford or SSYC mid-day tomorrow. Pike Tuesday. Backyard Wednesday, this fall has been pretty good so far!

Looking to see everyone out this week. Not sure what happened to the weather though. It was 80 and near board shorts when I left and now I'm thinking it's winter suit weather. Guess I can't go on vacation anymore :)

The panhandle was nice. 80 degrees most days with the gulf around 70. Packed a spring suit and didn't use it once. Even got a North wind and was able to ride the sound which reminded me much of Hatteras. 2' of water even 500 yards off shore. Oysters everywhere though, took a couple of solid chunks out of my TT riding over oysters...better than my feet I suppose.

Highlights included foiling up and down the island with very curious dolphins, watching my 4-yr old fly the trainer kite solo, getting my wife flying my 10m 4-line kite solo, and then watching my 3 yr old body board for 3 hours straight. Happy vacation, happy to be home :)

Jeff, it sounds like you had a great time.

JV, the rain makes things look pretty iffy for today. I'll keep an eye on the radar to see if the rain will give us a chance to kite this afternoon. Noon looks like bad timing, but that's based on a "forecast" (two four letter words combined).

Tomorrow (Tuesday) looks good from mid-morning through the day. Pike is the place. I'll probably get there by 11.
