Oct 22-24

Hoping to get out today, warm S breeze but mostly 5-10 with occasional gusts to 15 in back yard. Bonnie and I likely to just windsurf and do freestyle playing as I doubt I could stay on foil even with biggest equipment.

However, tomorrow and next day looking more promising, and warm air still. If Bonnie does not go out, I’ll do Lake Michigan somewhere.

Bradford looks like the spot for me today (Sunday). Sheboygan could be more than I can handle with my smallest kite (8m). Bradford might be the same, but I'd probably be with other kiters. Port Washington would be less wind, but I would likely be the only one there. I'll probably get there about noon. Who else plans on Bradford today?

Well, the wind was not quite as much as advertised, but Bonnie and I did enjoy a nice fall afternoon in our back yard on the water, doesn’t get much better than that (though if she didn’t go out I would have taken advantage of some surf on the big pond…). Not complaining though.

Dave, Steve, Don, and I rode first at Bradford, but the wind was coming down. Jason stopped by, saw us moving to bigger kites and dipped. Bryce showed up for a lesson and got up on the board, but there was enough wind to go anywhere after that. BBR stuck around long enough for the wind to come back around 4 p.m. Maybe we can sneak in one more day.....

I will see what conditions are like here in Port Washington. I may try wing foiling in the harbor here. I haven't done that yet, so if I chicken out I'll either kite here from South Beach or head back to Bradford. I will make that call about 11.

I heard that surfing was great at South Beach yesterday. If I decide to kite here the waves could be fun.

Bradford was decent but needed a hydrofoil. An 8m kite and hydrofoil is a fun setup though - can whip the kite around any which way. Enough East that I could run from Bradford beach to inside the harbor on a single line. Wind was pretty light though and water was cold so I didn't spend too much time in the harbor. Dalius and a few others out till 5pm at Bradford.
