Skate & Stand-up Paddle Boarding!!

Very excited to tell you about this event! Chicago Paddle Company is hosting a special Skate & SUP (Stand-up Paddle Boarding) event for us. This will be a skate to Hollywood Beach where we will get a 1-hour Stand-up Paddle Boarding Lesson for a reduced rate of $25 (normally $35, incl. board rental and instructions). No previous SUP experience required. They will teach us basic skills and it is pretty intuitive, especially if you are a skater and have good balance. Don't miss this!

***Please make sure to sign-up on the Chicago Paddle Company Website and on meetup! ****

Visit: https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=38029

Look for: Private Event: Windy City Skaters Skate + Paddle  with Amy

Sign-up and pay to reserve your spots. Spots are limited to 15 so hurry up!

Schedule:


For the skate you have two options depending on how far you want to skate. Here's the plan:

1:30 PM: Meet us on Fullerton right accross from the Theater by the Lake if you want to skate 5 Miles. We will wait until about 1:45PM. This is the exact location:  http://goo.gl/maps/rqGzs If you are running late meet us at the next stop or at the Beach.

2:15PM: Meet us at Montrose Ave and Lakeshore Path if you want to skate only 2 Miles. This is the exact location: http://goo.gl/maps/nBNwi

2:45PM Arrive at Chicago Paddle Company. http://goo.gl/maps/QYqU5 Lesson starts at 3:00PM but we need to be there 15 min. early to sign a waiver and get our paddles sized.

4:00PM Food at Nacho Mama's Beach Cafe right next to Chicago Paddle Company

About 5:00PM: Skate back

What to bring:

- A swimsuit and/or quick drying performance clothing in case you do fall in. You probably won't but just in case bring a change of clothes too.

- A towel

- Suncreen

- Your skates, helmet, pads etc.

Again, this event is for all skill levels but as far as skating goes you need to be able to skate 2-5 Miles along the path and as always, you skate at your own risk.

Got it?

See you all there!

Kirsten

    This was about as fun as fun gets! It'd probably be in the best interest of the group to do this a few times per year :)

    Being as how I am not from the area, will there be public parking around the Fullerton location?

    July 10, 2014

    • Kirsten

      Another option is just taking Metra into the city and then the red/brown line to Fullerton.

      July 11, 2014

    • Kirsten

      Looks like traffic is crazy this weekend due to the Taste. I highly recommend taking the train.

    Glad you found it. If the link I posted does not work, go on the website and look under 'Events' not under the regular class schedule.

    I signed up on the Chicago Paddle Company but they don;t list a class at 3:00 PM. Neither can I find "Private Event: Windy City Skaters Skate + Paddle with Amy" anywhere on their website. What should I do to sign up for the right class? Thanks for helping!
