The Matuli 5 foot 10 Inch fish board is freshwater tested in Lake Michigan and the Red Cedar River. This board has a soft construction around a ridged EPS foam core. This board is great for beginners because of its soft flexible fins and the boards extra volume.
The water has warmed up! The North wind has produced some surf. The best places right now are going to be on the leeward side of a pier. The wind is side shore and the lateral current is pushing everything south.
The swell period is only about 6 seconds so the paddle out can be a little rough if you don’t time it right.
The wind is expected to blow all day so there should be waves all day. Have fun and be safe.
It was a classic freshwater surf session in St. Joe, Friday afternoon. The North West swell wrapped around the South Pier. In the evening the wind died and the waves started cleaning up. It was a super fun session. I used my stand up surfboard and my 1960’s Fry log.
More waves today with (45007) showing 4.5 feet with a 7 second period Monday morning.
