Ice-out on Lake Superior

Ice-out finally happened at one of the more consistent surf spots on Lake Superior while some light but favorable winds created waves just big enough to goof around and have a little fun on. So long as you kept an eye on the remnant ice chunks floating around the line-up you might not get pelted.

Surfing a Sunday swell on Lake Superior

Lake Superior saw a decent swell roll in to its North Shore on Sunday, December 2, that brought people out to surf from as far away as North Carolina. Spots up and down the shore were pumping fun waves that cleaned up as the winds shifted late in the afternoon. Here is a selection of waves ridden that day by Ryan Patin, Evan Lawrence, Lad Strzok, Keala Ede, and Stefan Ronchetti.
