Another great view of the South Haven pier. This is my local break for surf kayaking. I typically surf about 100 yards off this pier. Sand builds up on the bottom from the storms forming a nice sand bar to form. If the wind is out of the NW you can paddle out on relatively (somewhat) flat water to catch big, 8-10 foot waves. Trouble is period. The period on the great lakes is rarely over 10 seconds. It’s more like 5.
