Tuesday, August 12th there was a North West wind and I wanted to find a new spot to surf. The wind is everything when surfing the lakes. I was looking for a spot that was protected from the wind but still had swell. Usually the best to
clean up waves to to surf on the leeward side of a pier. The waves will be a little smaller but cleaner.
I was in Northern Michigan so I drove west towards Lake Michigan looking for some fresh water waves. The first spot I found had good size and power but the longshore current was running very quickly from North to South. I got a few rides but it was a hike back to where I started. I kept looking, and found some cleaner lines closer to the Pier.
