If the forecast holds I'll probably head to waukegan from the city sometime in the afternoon and just eat the parking fee.

Unfortunately sometimes you have to PAY to PLAY lOl... I'll be there early maybe try to sneak before the copper hits the booth but you also have to remember they open later also...Hey I have also noticed that some of Sundays may spill over to monday, we'll see..

decisions, decisions.

Sheboygan if there's some NNE or NE in it and strong.

Grant park? Ryan?

Zion if it's straight North, but can anyone tell me if the beach is open?

Keegs? Doesn't it need to be NNE or NE to fill in on the inside?

Crossing my fingers it blows.

Been way too long since riding with you guys and the truck will be full to the hilt with demo kites and boards if anyone wants to try them. stoked.

Bob,

Hard to say. Grant might fire, but I'm a little iffy about it. We'll have to see what happens. Just give me a call early in the am. As of now I'm thinking more waukegan than grant but we'll see.

I'm new to your forum and will be flying out to Chicago today for the week.
I was hoping to catch some of that wind tomorrow.
Is Waukegan the closest spot for the forecast tomorrow?
If anyone is heading out
from the city and has some extra room, could I catch a ride?

Thanks for your help and advise.

Hopefully will meet some of you tomorrow!!

Hey Shawn,

Give me a text. We are heading in the city to kite. It's called Montrose beach. You just have to have a good level of kiting ability to kite there (certified) That will be the closest otherwise Miller beach or Waukegan/Zion (same place really).

Me and a bunch are heading to Montrose for the day. Should be a KILLER day!

Front just came through up here, going out to ride right now and get some flat water riding behind our jetty.

Going to be really sweet in the am.

I would be there too if the wind has some E component on it. Second choice would be Winebago but I never kited there. Bob, do you have John's contact?

Hey guys,

My name is Jaime and I'm new to the forum-- It was really nice to meet some of you at miller last Tuesday (G, Jeff, Jason, Mike, Amanda) After taking lessons back in April in DR and getting certified (IKO level 3M),I have yet to ride in the big lake. At any rate, I was hoping to meet many of you tomorrow at Waukegan or Zion. Whats the call? Either location seems that it would be the best way to go for me in order to get back into the motion of things and continue my training-- plus I definitely want to hear from the experienced riders about the intricacies of riding on lake Michigan which I'm pretty sure are different from the Caribbean wAters.
Question though, I was looking at the directions to waukegan that are posted on the forum and I just wanted to makesure that if a follow them I'll be able to get to the same place where all of you usually park --the place where you have to pay $20 to park

Cheers,

Jaime

Waukegan update...

Wind is gusty, lulls of 12 to gusting 30. Flopping back and forth from a NNE and N. 6 kiters pumped and eagerly waiting. Roman teasing on his wind surf
