Late Winter Surf in the Thumb

Jon and I took a trip for a dawn patrol session on Lake Huron.  We stopped a few places along the way.  The waves were not as large as we expected, but it sure was as chilly as forecasted.  It looked pretty flat and unappealing from the car.  So, it took quite a bit of effort to muster the strength to change into a wetsuit and brave the cold side-shore winds.  We wound up finding a nice little point to catch a few waves.

There were a few decent rides but the wave angle wasn’t ideal for the locations we checked.  There seemed to be a lot of closeout waves mixed in with the gems.  I had quite a few fun waves before we had to pack it up.  We made the track up the beach into the wind, through the rocky shore back to the car.  We changed, warmed up and headed home.
