Surf Season in Full Swing

The water is starting to warm and the waves are getting bigger.  With that in mind I thought I’d share a few surf and SUP pictures and video from the past week.

This past Monday was Memorial Day and the mid afternoon brought near perfect surf conditions for Frankfort.  At one time I counted over 25 surfers, stand up paddle boarders, and kiteboarders on Lake Michigan.

Tuesday wasn’t a big wave day but the south wind picked up at sunset allowing for some nice boosts by the end of the night.

Boosting in Grand Haven

Saturday was rainy and out of the North and Northeast along the West Coast of Michigan.  Near Grand Haven the wind was side-off creating some decent swells by late afternoon.

Dropping in.


Offshore winds made for nice waves

Saturday night the clouds opened up and allowed for an intense golden sunset in West Michigan.
