Being so vast and prone to similar meteorological effects as the oceans, the Great Lakes can offer that thrilling experience of big waves and high winds. Get out on the water and discover surfing for yourself!

It might surprise a lot of people, but the Great Lakes can offer up some amazing surfing experiences.

Over recent years, more and more people are discovering the adventure of surfing these inland seas. While it can get pretty chilly (around 0-5 degrees celsius or 32-41 degrees fahrenheit), autumn and winter can produce some of the biggest waves due to wind currents and the lakes’ immense size (Lake Superior has been known to produce waves over 30 feet in height!). Not to mention, you don’t have to worry about a surprise visit from sharks or jellyfish. Get out on the waves and experience the adventure of Great Lake surfing!
