Memorial day through labor day Grand Haven beach is really busy but when it’s windy you can typically find an open space to launch just south of the Bil Mar restaurant. If it looks windy get to the beach early because parking fills up quick. Work your way upwind by the pier to boost in the flat water or stay put and play around in the surf. Be careful while riding a north wind late into the evening as the wind will sometimes drop suddenly and shift to the east. A true north is a little gusty here and we suggest heading further south to Riley Beach or Tunnel Park in those conditions.
