Looks class. Over in Chicago from Ireland for 5 weeks on business. I surf back home and would love to try surfing the lakes. Its been over a week since I surfed back home and i am starting to get withdrawal symptoms. I need to get back in the water :-)Is there somewhere I can hire the gear etc?

Looks as if you managed a nice little snap there, bet you guys are on any ripple that comes through, good stuff. Do the lakes get waves all year or just with storms? :)

Cheers, just checked out the link, some great waves and looks like a real tight crew. Great to see a completely different scene.
