OVERALL DESCRIPTION: Yes, you can surf on a lake. The Great Lakes are so large that passing storms with sustained winds pushing over hundreds of miles can produce ocean-like peeling waves. However, we are not going to tell you where to find these gems, you will have to put in the time and effort to earn that knowledge yourself.
WHAT TO BRING: Board, leash, thick wetsuit, gloves, booties, hood, wax, as well as a thermos of coffee or your favorite beverage to warm up afterwards.
TOTAL ELEVATION GAIN/LOSS: 6-8 feet.
WHEN TO GO: Late summer - mid winter
TIPS: The best spots are in the least likely of places.
