Thank you for browsing our History of Great Lakes Surfing page. Lake Surfing has a rich and vibrant history and we're working on compiling as much information, articles, anecdotes and photos in order to remember and relive these moments. Our aim is to bring Lake Surfing's past to life and share it with ease through social media.
We cannot do this alone and we welcome all of your photos, stories, articles and general contributions from the Great Lakes to add to these pages. And if we've made mistakes on names, dates or any content, please let us know and we will correct them. All contributions will be credited on the page.
This is a work in progress and we appreciate your help. Keep watching this page as it grows and our Lake Surfing History unfolds..
