Weekend Kiteboarding Forecast April 26th and 27th

Last Week:  I was a little rusty.  Friday afternoon a NW thermal developed in Muskegon and brought in much better winds then I had anticipated.  Saturday was pretty much what I thought, except I doubt there was any good wind at Little Sable Pt.  Sunday, the best wind was north of Muskegon.  There was never enough from Holland to Muskegon.  However, from Whitehall north it was blowing good.  I scored  a great session at Meinert park.

Tally So Far: Nailed It! – 0, Close – 1, Way Off – 0 Finally!

Today:  Looks like Muskegon is good at 17 to 20 knots this afternoon out of the NW.  Everywhere else is light, but Grand Haven and then Holland could build as the afternoon goes on.

Saturday:  Should be 15 to 20 knots out of the NW for most of the shoreline from Holland to Manistee.  The strongest winds will be in the early afternoon.  I think up around Little Sable and Big Sable points it could be a little higher around 20 to 25 knots.  Some good beaches will be Manistee 1st St beach, Cedar Point Park, Muskegon Pere Marquette and Grand Haven City Beach.

Sunday:  It’s going to be windy out of the east.  Maybe up to 20 knots for most of Michigan.  This takes Lake Michigan out of the running, but if you have a favorite inland lake for kiteboarding, it might be a good day to try it out.  I usually sit these days out, but you never know.

 This is a weekly blog post of my best guess at the kiteboarding conditions for the coastline of Lake Michigan from Holland north to Pt Betsie.   Subscribe to automatically receive this forecast in your inbox
