Day 41 of the 2017 season: Strike it rich at Caseville county beach

TOB: 12:30 - 2:30 and 3:30 - 5:30
Gear: 9M Z and Mako TT
Water conditions:  somewhat disorganized waves at beach area. At leeside of breakwall clean waves and slick and that was where I spent all of my time today. Up to head high organized swell with a glassy slick on leeside of breakwall.
Wind: NNE  steady 20-30 slowing dropping off but solid 9M all day for me.
Weather:  Mostly sunny, 70ish
Highlights: slick, boosting, ollies, carving and clean waves

Caseville, near epic conditions. Kited with the 9M in sunny NNE side on 20-30 mph conditions.
Kited downwind at the lee-side of the breakwall, nice clean swell and slicks.
Extraordinary boosting conditions in the slick and many 180 ollies in both directions over the small slick chop.
Very fast speeds carving on the clean waves.
Up to 5 foot waves, on lee side, glassy slick,
4 hours of drive time for 4 hours of kite time., well worth it.
About 8-10 kiters enjoying the conditions.
Topped off with dinner with Craig Larry and Debbie at the Bluewater on main street
