lake michigan ftw!

this is spring how i like it to be! While Saturday was still showing some snowfall while we were kiting (and I do have to confess I was freezing for the first time that day) today air temperatures were already around 55°F, water about 41°F (5°C), nice steady wind for kites of 12 and less. Sandy, sandy beach (greetings to GangMan!) and good waves in the afternoon. And tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer! Kitesurfing people around here are really friendly, helpful and concearned about safety – how it should be :)

It is still impressive to see the huge airplaines just a few hundred meters above your kites heading to the airport while on the water, having the skyline of Milwaukee in your back (it is not a small unknown island in Greece :) ) but I really do enjoy it!

Thx to rheoflux for taking some awesome pictures today!
