Here is a list of the recently approved additions to the Lakefront Trail. SUP assess is now allowed at the following beaches:
Hollywood. Near the street access. Available streets (Ardmore and Thorndale)
Foster, to the North is OK. Just at the iron structure, there is a sand bar with an immediate drop off. Location is away from the main beach
North Avenue: West of the rental area, inside the hook, outside the pilings.
31st: Better on the south end of the beach/ north side of the pier. There is a cut out along the pier. During low water periods, "catching on the rocks may pose a problem. Use caution during low water periods. There is a rock wall under the water.
57th: The north side of the beach.
Your input is welcome and encouraged. We may need to shift launches as beach, water, and obstructions are considered. Please say hello to the guards. This will be a new experience for them as well. The more we work together the better the experience will be for everyone!
Thanks again to Ian at Chicago SUP, Jess at Windward Boardshop, Adrien star of Montrose, and Surfrider Chicago! Another great team effort has paid off!
