Last Week: Nailed It. Nothing much went on for Friday or Saturday, but Sunday was blowing at the points. I was at Sleeping Bear Sunday and rode in Frankfort. Pt Betsie was blowing better than Frankfort, but no one else was riding there. It’s not the safest spot to be solo in cold water. Once you pass the lighthouse, the next stop is the Manitou Islands.
Tally So Far: Nailed It! – 2, Close – 3, Way Off – 0
Today: There is some wind out of the NW this afternoon in Muskegon and Grand Haven, but it doesn’t look like it is going to build anymore along the beach to be rideable.
Saturday: Looks like a great day to do just about anything except kiteboard! Calm variable winds forecasted
Sunday: Looking a little better for some thermal wind with a southerly flow and sunny skies. As of right now I would say that Pt Betsie looks pretty solid for 15 to 20 knots. Little Sable and Big Sable could be rideable as well.
Memorial Day: It’s a ways out to make an accurate forecast, but I’m hoping its going to be a good South wind day north of Muskegon and up the coast all the way to Pt Betsie. I’d say 20 knots at the points right now. This could improve or decline depending on cloud cover.
I’ll check in over the weekend and probably make some comments on how Sunday and Monday are shaping up. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday!
