Winter Surfing on Lake Superior

I’ve blogged about winter surfing on Lake Superior a time or two in the last couple of years, but I’m never attempted the cold feat.

Jenn of Jenn Barnett Photos went and this is what she has to say.

It was a balmy 5 degrees F and the wind was blowing, so naturally we hopped in the car and drove up to Stoney Point to catch some waves. We checked out the surf just outside of downtown Duluth and it looked a little small but we kept our hopes up for Stoney. We pulled up to Stoney Point and well, it was still small. There were a couple of guys out already and after watching for a while it was clear that today would be a waiting game. Whatever! After a three hour drive we weren’t going to just turn around, so the guys went out anyway. It was worth a shot! The conditions did improve and the boys were able to score quite a few decent rides. I was able to capture some good shots, only fell twice, and didn’t break anything. An awesome day!

You have to check out the slideshow.
