Surf Park Proposed for North Side Beach

The surfing simulation could be part of renovations to Montrose Beach, said Chicago Surf founder, but it depends on community support

A North Side beach may soon see a unique surfing experience.

Chicago Surf is proposing an on-land surf park among several renovations to the Wilson Avenue beach house at Montrose Beach on the city’s North Side, according to the company’s founder K.C. Hoos.

Improvements to the beach would include a concession area with open patio seating, restroom renovations, security cameras, a gift shop, and the main attraction, a surfing simulation park that creates artificial waves up to six feet high for surfers to ride the waves.

46th Ward Alderman James Cappleman hosted a community meeting at Clarendon Park's Community Center on Thursday evening to discuss the potential project, which Hoos says depends on community support.
