Zion would work better on direct N. + no park entrance fee.

Sorry I missed it. Was thinking of making this my first Lake Michigan session of the year, but stayed at Clinton Lake, which was useless. Please don't tell me it was as good as SailFlow says it was!

No worries, it sucked as I was overpowered on my 8m all the way from Zion down to Waukegan...

haha Pier....

Came all the say from Madison and it delivered in spades. Perfect 8m and a great way to rejuvenate the surf board muscles. Had so much fun that I decided to donate my center fin to Lake Michigan for ever.

Kept missing the downwinder bandwagon but it was one of the better sessions I've had at Zion in over 5 years.

BTW...what the hell happened to the beach by the big lot? It's like a cliff. Been over 5 years since riding Zion and it used to be a nice beach. All erosion I guess, huh?

Great to se a bunch of friends and meet new friends.

If theres any west in upcoming winds and want for ride inland, look me up in Madison. Great crew and great places to ride and throw down.

See you all next time.
