We have all heard the stories about surfing in the great lakes. There is always some dude that has a story about how epic he caught it on Lake Michigan during a cold, winter storm. Whatever….. I”m sure it’s real fun to suffer in 30mph winds smack dab in the middle of a harsh winter storm. No thanks. I will stick to the shark infested water of New Smyrna Beach. This photo was taken up in Bay Harbor, Michigan while I was up there near the 4th of July. It was the middle of summer and it was still only 48 degrees outside at sundown. I am sure it gets much bigger than this, but it stil illustrates the point that surfing in the great lakes is indeed possible….just not favored.
