South Haven Lighthouse from North Beach

South Haven Pier from North Beach.

Wind has been out of the south since fall, it’s the weirdest thing. As long as I’ve been surfing in South Haven, NW winds are the norm. So as a result I have a lot of practice breaking right away from the pier on the north side. Since fall, I’ve had to surf the north side and break left. Great practice, and I didn’t realize how right hand centric I was. Especially when it’s critical to move fast you don’t want to be thinking about which way you’re doing something! Great to get out in the middle of the week. It was light out until about 7 PM. After a while I just couldn’t see the wave face very well and bagged it.
