Surfing on the Fresh Coast
Spring is a funny thing here in Wisconsin. It's not uncommon to get a surprise snow fall in April, but changes in weather often bring amazing conditions for a little fun on Lake Michigan. For those who don't know, not only is fresh water surfing a real thing, but Wisconsin is probably the best place to experience it. Jake, owner of Lake Effect Surf Shop in Milwaukee, invited me out to photograph him and some of his friends catching a few waves. The temperature was about 25° F (-5 C), but with the right attire, plus some serious passion and dedication, the surfers dove in head first for a morning on the fresh coast.
