John Fleming and I managed to hit the water on May 8th to go surfing on Lake Michigan in South Haven. Winds were reported at 30 knots. Waves were 7-11 ft at the buoy. We never saw an 11 foot wave. Though once every five minutes we did see a solid 8 footer.
We caught some nice rides, I even got a clean ride along the line on the inside once the wind started dying.
