Cory that is just the absolute worst, I have experienced this myself in the past. You need to rework your schedule, I'll be thinking about you on Sunday. Good luck
I'd rather be Rollerblading

I planned this over a month ago so getting out of it just isn't going to be an option :(

I'd love to take em to the beach but I think they'd probably complain about it sitting there doing nothing on a chilly breezy beach. Get some for me!!!

V,

I was at casino twice in the last 3 weeks, the gates are open and you can park everywhere in that parking lot.

IVO,

Casino should work on the NE, it can be more on shore though. The wave is the nicest there, its cleaner than montrose, but the beach is narrower.

I will probably be riding at montrose. Also hoping that the saturday E SE picks up for some waves for the SUP.

Hope to see some kites tomorrow at M, don't all be driving so far!!!

yeh Jochi casino is my favourite spot,I should have been more specific,how the waves look like on NE,but I guess anything with N in it will produce some nice waves..
If the wind is good casino it is!It's gonna be rainy day for sure..

Imo, a ne (starting n btw) will bend more north along the chicago shoreline so it won't be direct on at casino. I'm debating casino or zion. (Or waukeegs and ride upwind a mile to birdshit island for the waves if no one does a downwinder).

I just wanna ride!

Seriously, this is killing me. South end is gonna have the biggest surf. N going NE... only one place in my opinion.....


Have fun tomorrow
