Kitesurfing in December?

Postby csa_1 » Sat Nov 26, 2011 6:56 am

Hi guys,

I'm planing to visit Chicago around Dec 19th.

I heard Chicago is called "the windy city" so i wanna take a ride on your lake.
Coldness doesn't matter only wind ;)

Where can I rent a kite/board and a drysuit or wetsuit?

At this time in December it could be either kiting on a snow field or on the water. It all depends. If air temp is below freezing usually my safety in the CL ices up solid which makes everything very sketchy. If we get good snow storm there are plenty of fields around to kite. As far as gear you should contact some of the local dealers for demos. I don't think renting would be an option. If you are an accomplished kiteboarder and I am around you can borrow some of my gear.
