Cold Water Sessions

A more recent entry into the surf blog, consisting of some Pre-Halloween Elbow, Thanksgiving in Rat City, and this past Saturday at the infamous Elbow. All in all the early winter surf has been surprising, since this fall was lackluster, with of few exceptions. The shorelines from Racine to Sheboygan have produced some nice swell along with the unforeseen and down right scary Jason Vorhess sighting at the Elbow. Watch who you are cutting off in the water!

Mark Wente displaying his New Liberator. Pretty.

Not a great swell but some nice rides no the less.

Room to move.

The vehicles that transport the surfer and their board come in a variety of sizes.

Rat City Thanksgiving Day 2005, guaranteed to make you drool. A strong NW brought some nice swell to the Rat's Nest.

The paddel out provided a glimpse of what is to come, once one reaches the line up.

Back to Sheboygan from this past Saturday, a steady SW created a stellar day. It's always a treat when your expectations are low and the waves are high.

Teek showing knowledge is the vessel to a nice right.

Paddling out through the waves is almost as nice as paddling into a wave.

What kind of odd, skinny dorsal fin is that?

Hope you enjoyed this installment, know back to the search.

2nd Annual Milwaukee Invitational

Past images from the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Invitational. There where surfers in attendance from all over the lakes, in attendance Team Blatz, Superior Surf Club, Crane Point Surf Club, along with a bunch of others sliders. Luckily for the organizer that mother nature was also in attendance. A perfect NW wind dredged up some clean lines for us all to share.

Know lets get to the rides. A complilation of shots from those catching and riding waves.

It always a treat when you can showcase your local
break and share it with others. I met people that day I had only communicated with online and heard stories about. It is truely remarkable how surfing brings so many differnt people togehter, to share in a common bond.

Here is a short clip from Existence a lake surfing video. This sequence is from Sheboygan on a WSW Gale. Thats right WSW!

A Rare Day October 2004

A firey sky on a early October dawn patrol. The person in the photo is my brother Shawn. This morning was especially cold, air temp was 32 and water temp was 42.
To bad for my brother that I forgot to bring my hood. But with rare days on the lake such as these, you just have to jump in regardless of your lack of equipment.

The 2nd picture is his first ride. We were so excited when we pulled up to the break and ran to the edge of the bluff. Only to see waist to chest high ground swell. The wind had cranked out of the NW overnight and shut down just before sunrise. An epic day here on the lake.
