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.
South/southeast winds provided ideal conditions for clean, waist-high waves on Black Friday at Atwater Beach on Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Here Jake Bresette joined other freshwater surfers early prior to opening up Lake Effect Surf Shop, the store he and his wife Alaina own and operate.
Red Bull Urban Portage, in collaboration with the Loppet Foundation, was a 10-mile canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP) race through the Chain of Lakes and its tributaries in Minneapolis that took place on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
