for our new riders :
Please be very careful and considerate if you go to Wolf Lake. It's the original windsurfing spot in Chicago.
When I go out, I usually try to head upwind of the island and totally avoid terrorizing the windsurfers. It's pretty frightening to say the least, if you're not a kiteboarder and have a kite zooming over your head while you're out on a windsurfer.
There are power lines, cement in the water, re-bar (metal bars), slag, rocks, weeds, shallow spots, wind shadows, houses, chicken wire fences, and docks in the water. All of these are just waiting to eat your kite. did I mention the fish hook and glass? I forgot the duck shit on the beach.
The Wolf has swallowed many kites, boards, and fins over the years.
You've been warned.
