I'm new to the sport, and I am trying to find a beach where I can get more practice in. I'm able to get up on the board but can't sustain it, and haven't tried turning or going up wind yet. From Google maps Waukegan looks like a good beach to begin, so I was wondering if anyone else has better suggestions?

Waukegan is a great beach but blowing straight off shore today. Hit the Michigan side..... Please don't go to Waukegan today with offshore conditions.

Also forgot to note that I wanted to get some water time in this weekend and it looks like Saturday evening has some NE winds as well as Sunday with ESE winds.

Saturday 7/20/2013 looks pretty doable in the late afternoon. I might make it a day on the beach and hope to catch some. Feel free to drop me a text when you go
