Illinois Beach / Zion- South PArk CLOSED

Postby skysurfr » Sun Jul 31, 2011 8:16 pm

I took the SUP out today. I was amazed to see all the downed trees in the Zion / Waukegan area.

The SOUTH part of the Illinois Beach State Park remains closed due to storm damage.

The NORTH entrance is open. Go east on 17th Street and into the Park.

When I left the gates were closed and they were not letting anyone else in due to over crowding.

Looks like some launchable areas for kites, if the wind ever comes back.

It was a very nice SUP session, on a SW the water is glassy and you can paddle just a few feet off the sand....or way out.

The jetski's provided for some amazing chop hoppping on the sup... ok.. I was going 1 knot.... and almost fell on my arse....
:lol:
