South Winds forecasted this weekend bring warmer water and waves into Baileys Harbor. We have already had more good days this spring than all season last year.
If you are on a budget then check out Baileys Woods Campground just a mile from the lake.
Looking good for South Wind and Waves in Baileys Harbor for Tuesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon. Standup Paddleboards, Surfboards, Kayaks Windsurfers and Kitesurfers will all be hitting it this week. NOAA is calling for 15 – 25 mph with 3 – 5′ waves.
If this is your first ride of the season, you might want to inventory your gear. So often, guys show up without their harness, hook, bar/lines pump/hose hat booties gloves – all those small items that get lost over the winter. Tighten your footstraps and fin screws. Then clean your safety quick release systems. Most people never use their safety systems so over time they can get dirty or sticky which may fail if and when you ever need it. And do it before you get to the beach.
Yes, it is still pretty cold and some kitersurfers are waiting for summer weather. It’s a good time to start getting back in shape. But I advise against the standard mantra of diet and exercise. The combination of starting both at the same times increases the chances of quitting both.
Only exercise. Then reward yourself with your favorite dessert. Everytime you workout, you get that dessert. And after about 10 days you will notice that your favorite dessert is no longer so attractive, while the chemical reaction in your body after exercising is making you feel better and better. Then you give up the dessert that you are tired of. Your body is now in a cycle of burning all that excess dessert and will start burning your fat stored up from the winter.
