I am looking for help. We will be in Chicago this weekend and I am considering taking the boat (Nautique 230) and dropping into Lake Michigan on Sat-Sun. Is this a stupid idea?

Though we normally board/skate more than surf, I've already kind of figured surfing will be our best option. I believe there is a public ramp at Burnham Harbor, which is easier for me to get to from Indy since I am on interstates / Lakeshore Dr. and would not have to tow the boat on the city streets.

Once on the lake, is it better to stay behind the breakwalls, or are those two areas zoos? Though it's no wake, what about going through the locks to the river? Figure it is at least scenic.

We've taken our boat to Lake Michigan before on the east side at St. Josephs/Benton Harbor and had a great time, but Chicago feels different.

Thanks for the advice/help.
