Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan
July 3, Empire Beach.
6.0, 84 JP was the setup for today.
From 11:00 - 2:30 sailed in the waves, duckin, jibing and helitacking.
SW swell has been building since Friday as SW winds 15-20 mph have been steady. Completely cloudless day, 85 degrees and 65 degree water.
Two other Euro guys windsurfing, 1 kiter and several surfers.
4th of July at Empire Beach.
Another fine day at Empire Beach, identical to yesterday SW winds 15-20 with nice organized swell.
The Ezzy 6.0 and the JP 84 worked as well as I could make them work. Easy inside ducks down smooth slopes of water. Even doing one clew first cutback accidently. Cool feeling when the nose of the board hits the wave and it pushes it around where you can continue riding the wave.
Session started at noon lasted till 3:30 but winds kept up until sunset.
After 3 days of SW winds the swell was as good as it gets.
