    I've seen some PHENOMENAL surf conditions on Lake Superior - and I don't even surf!
    Gravity. It's the law.

    I have surfed on Lake Superior...in a kayak. Lester River, I got fucking hammered inside and got dragged up onto the rocks. It was rad. When they are coming every 5-7 seconds nonstop, it gets hard to escape.

    This is unbelievable- Lake Superior, Marquette MI-

    These guys snowmobiled in 10 miles then rappeled down a 500 ft dune then surfed ice free waters-in zero degrees F temps last week-

    Lester River! I grew up there. Watched some people unexpectedly start wake boarding on an overturned 8' sailboat down there one summer day. The wind switched from the northwest to the south and the lake went from little ripples to 4 ft whitecaps in about 90 minutes. I ended up helping them get to shore. They were pretty exhausted by the time I reached them . They had no clue how fast that lake can change on you.

    Good windsurfing waves can be had frequently. But surf waves, those are usually reserved for November. You've got to be one crazy mfer to get out there in those conditions.

    Is there enough surf there often enough to support a Surf shop in the area? Is there one already?

    Not that Im looking to get in the bus. Just wondering where someone would buy a surf board around there?

    Grand Sable Banks Grand Marais MI, a couple hours east. Family is from there. That spot is way down the snowmobile trail at the log slide but you can access the east side pretty easily. A couple times a year snow actually sticks to the bluff. That water is cold in August!

    Huckin eh,

    There usa surf shop there I used to rent from them when I went to school there. The name of theahop is casualties skate snow surf. They were really chill guys and had a lot of superior surfing. If you are planning on going up there usually the best place to surf is presque isle at the end of the loop (its a big arching bay so you can catch wind swells from NW to NE). Since I didn't have too many ways to transport a board up there and it was so close to campus that was the extent to my experience up therei

    This is what I've been up to lately:

    laying around



    standing around


    milking it


    dealing with frequent cases of the one-mores


    not winning any style contests


    yup, definitely not winning any of those


    experiencing ice cream headaches

    "brah! I can fully charge b/c of my ice hairhelmet brah!"

    it's my mom's house in the Marquette MI area. I benefit from staying out a little longer and being a bit bolder (hood off) b/c there's a warm shower waiting.

    I started surfing in Washington, then I came home with these new surfing eyes and saw lefts happening in front of this house and just about shit bricks. I can't express what it's like to be here and finally making it happen. It's a longstanding dream realized.

    The other day when it was -10f....I almost went and got my stuff but it was late in the day and the idea of going in the water by myself at 10 below after dark seemed sort of foolish.
