MUSSEL BEACH

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…

Change of Plans

IMG_5546-0.JPG

This week we were supposed to head to the East Coast and surf, but the forecast was pretty much flat. We decided to stay in the midwest and find other mini adventures. We are heading up north to wake surf today and hopefully score some waves in the morning in northern Lake Michigan.

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.

Midnight Waves

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.
