TC area 30 July

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what might be a good spot for a beginner tomorrow in the TC/Leelanau area? I've already been out a few times this summer and I'm wondering what might be a good location without too big of waves. Thanks.See More

windsurfing lessons in northern Michigan

Hey guys,
I've been learning how to windsurf in nanjing, China for not quite 6 months now and, being there's a language barrier, I've hit a point where I don't know how to further improve. So,I come back to traverse city every summer and was hoping you all could lead me to some windsurfing lessons when I come home. I don't have any equipment, as I've been renting from the sailing club here in China. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
