Kite U.S. Forums _ Water _ Early spring

Posted by: SaulOhio Feb 27 2012, 07:58 PM

No ice at all on the lake! Looks like its going to be a very early Spring for us, no matter what that groundhog says.

The winds to look for are West winds on a sunny day while the water is still icy cold. At Headlands, these can be the most absolutely pure, butter smooth winds you can get. I've seen it glassy a mile or two out, but near Mentor Headlands beach, its blowing steady. Flat water, maybe no whitecaps at all, but because the wind is so smooth, I've had some amazing sessions there in early Spring.

Even if they don't forecast much wind at all, keep an eye on the Fairport Harbor Lighthouse weather station on NDBC.
