Looks like two to three Venice Florida as a tropical storm passes. But hey, waves in freshwater means surfing in the Midwest.

And I bet he swears on certain days it the best wave in the world. He would show you the spot but he would then be forced to kill you.

Currently up closer to the NW corner of the main (lower) Mi peninsula on Lake MI.. Saw lots of spots that I had been keeping an eye on break that I had never seen, one ~5 minutes from the casa.. Was hoping for strong NW winds => cleaner but smaller conditions (caught past June), but this sesh was N/NE winds. Finding a spot with waves and hiding from the wind is always the main issue.. Most lakefront is private property with limited access => surf guerrilla.. Lots of spots that for years have been sand over rocks are now all cobblestone rocks making getting out real tricky. Water still relatively warm (upper 60's) but wetsuits def required because of the the wind chill.. Went out in onshores anyway, close to OH, drifty but had fun anyway.. Stoke level up checking multiple potential spots.. Back to CFL in ~2 weeks..

Good for you for trying to make it work. A surfer surfs.
