YAH Says...

Surfing in Chicago? Neither you, or us, are geographically challenged in this instance. With the right wind swell, a few brave souls have managed to take advantage of winter storms and have been surfing the Great Lakes for decades. From 2 foot chop to overhead barrels, the Great Lakes can deliver enough wave strength to stave off away-from-the-ocean sickness in the Chicago area. Third Coast Surf Shop is the best place to get your fix whether the lake is pumping or not. Its a solace for land locked soul surfers.


Aloha Chicago!
