Flying a trainer

Post by ens137 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 10:37 am

I know that you can fly a trainer at Montrose (and the other major spots listed around the area) but has anyone found any good spots near downtown that are suitable for flying trainer kites? The wind forecast is looking great for this weekend!!!

If you're not "kiteboarding" and only flying a kite, you should be able to do that at any beach. Won't need to worry about wind direction too much as you won't be in the water. Keep in mind, the buildings will effect wind. Watch out for beach goers!

With this weather all beaches in Chicago are going to be very crowded, even flying a trainer could be challenging.

The park on Northerly Island is a good spot for flying a trainer kite.

Have fun
