Duluth Surf Scene


It is amazing how much press Lake Superior Surfing receives! Every time I turn around I am seeing the same article with the same faces!
When I worked at Patagonia my fellow sales rep built me a sweet 9'6 "Fresh Water" Long board, build with extra bouyancy and shape for short frequency waves. I will never forget the time I finally was able to get out on the lake to use it. It was brutal! Unlike tidal surfing, it was completely wind driven so scratching up the line was super physical, coming down was ok, but if you missed the wave you were instantly over the zone and had to resume scratching. It is a labor of love and obviously these guys love it!
