Boarders welcome!!! Even though the resorts near Chicago never break the top 100 places to board in US, we're just glad the winter is cold and long. We are a fun group of shredders, ranging from beginners to national competitors so you'll always be able to find someone to shred with. Membership is free but the meetup site does cost money so we do encourage members to show support by purchasing WCB bandanas, stickers or shirts.
You may also be wondering what we'll be doing off season. Well, some of us get together to longboard, inline skate, bike, play beach vball, and most importantly PARTY!! Everyone's welcome! (even skiers!)
1. Please use your real name. If worried about privacy or whatever, use only your first name because some stores ask for the list of the members for special benefits.
2. We also have a facebook group and facebook page if you have a facebook account. Search for "Windy City Boarders" or go here (https://www.facebook.com/groups/windycityboarders/). Discussions/Conversations are much more active on Facebook, however all the official meetups will still be scheduled on meetup.com.
