The parking and rigging area is paved and is roomy. Typically you can park within 100 yards of the water but beware of the high winds that pass over the dunes and next to the high rise. It can be 5.5. on the water but 4.0 in the rigging area! The launch is pretty clean and booties are not required. Best wind directions are Northwest to Northeast.
Chick's Beach is a few miles east of Route 13 at the first exit over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. Exit onto Route 60 East (Shore Drive) and continue about 1.5 miles to the Lesner Bridge over Lynnhaven Inlet. Turn left at the first light and bear left to the end. The sailing site is located adjacent to the Duck-In Restuarant on the east side of the Lynnhaven Inlet. The closest iWindsurf sensors are located to the East on the Lynnhaven fishing pier and to the North at the first island of the Chesapeake Bay bridge-tunnel.
Good wave sailing, decent parking (blue), clean sandy beach, shallow water near shore
