New kite surfer wants to kite on Sunday 7/31/16

Post by timcgibbs »

Hello!

I just got back from OBX and want to head out on the lake. I've never been out there before...

My IKO card is on the way, so it looks like I can't go to montrose - Any suggestions on where to go?

Thanks!

I should have been more clear... Anyone want to show me the ropes of an area? I live in Urbana -(2.5 hours south of Chicago)

Thanks, Tim

Tim, Its been a very lackluster summer for wind. Hopefully the late summer and fall winds will be better, and you can get out some, to keep things going for you on the kiting!! Miller beach, where Lake St meets Lake Michigan in Gary, and Michigan City should start to blow side on very soon...they are good beaches to learn on when not too windy or too onshore. Good luck and keep posting, as things heat up, more peeps will b checking in....

Mike, I was curious why you haven't been posting much recently...
