First Surf on Lake MichiganOctober 15th, 2011
We had a terrific weekend riding Lake Michigan. We rode at Muskegon Pier all day. I met up with Marc and Brad. I paddled out for the first time in the Lake, and I caught my first wave. It was a right and made 6-8 turns which pretty much made my day! Then we pumped up and went kiting for the next few hours. The waves were chest to head high and the wind was around 30 knots. We had a great session as the sun started to fall in the sky the wind picked up to 35-40 knots, which became too much for me so I surf for a while longer before calling it quits.
I crashed with Brad and his family and headed back to the coast in the morning. The wind shifted West overnight, which made the wind and waves very sloppy. Marc knew of this “secret” spot that was small but fun on the logs. We long longboarded for 3-4 hours. It was another great weekend on the water.
