    Surfing Superior Confluence: September 28-30, 2007

    An annual informal gathering of surf-seeking intermediate to advanced paddlers. The event takes advantage of autumnal gales and late summer warm water to provide a relaxing, instructional and by all means entertaining way to cap off your paddling season on the largest lake in the world.

    Enjoy laid back soul surfin’ or intense ender sessions in the freshwater surf playground at the mouth of the Michipicoten River. Warm-up in gentle, glassy green waves before tackling the crashing breakers and swirling eddies further offshore. With deep water and a beach landing adjacent to the surf zone, as well as the relatively warm river water, rescues are easier and swimming is safer.

    Are these waves there all the time? Is it seasonal? What’s the beta?

    The waves are there whenever the wind is blowing the right way. Its mostly in the fall that they get waves pretty steady.

    Yeah people have been kayak and board surfing in the Great Lakes for a long time. The North shore of Superior is probably one of the better spots. They get waves over twenty feet in the fall. The same time they have Surf Fest.

    There are quite a few good surf spots on Superior. Check out this site for some board-surfing information: [url:g5s32y2n]http://surfnatribros.com/[/url:g5s32y2n]

    To get an idea of what the waves are doing, check this out:
