That tiny black spec is Andy’s head. We stumbled upon this secret spot in Door County after all our usual spots let us down. It’s actually a slab but there was a 2 foot thick layer of Quagga mussels covering the rock. And we’re super ripped obviously…
When our plans to surf and camp in North Carolina completely fell through due to poor weather and lack of waves, we saw a slight spike in the local forecast and desperately made our way north for a chance at some waves. The lake didn’t give us what we expected, but instead offered the ultimate crash pad for some super fun bouldering at cave point.
Adam and I had an open day during the week. We decided to drive to the south end of Lake Michigan yesterday. Lucky for us the forecast delivered and we surfed for over 7 hours in some pretty fun waves. This spot is one of my favorites on the lake. You can surf almost anything in your quiver here. Not bad for a summer surf…actually probably one of the best summer sessions I’ve had on the lakes.

Thanks again to Ryan Bigelow for shooting this morning. Check out his instagram feed @whaddascoops.
We are getting pretty desperate this summer and couldn’t wait for waves in the morning. We went out and tried to surf with a flashlight sealed up in a diy housing. Between the flashlight and a little ambient light from the city we gave it our best shot. The waves were lacking the size that we needed, but we’ll be on it at dawn and it should be a different story then.
