First vid with new camera






So here is a clip from my session today. SW 4 to 7 foot. I don't think that it quite hit the mark, but the set wave came in at least chest high. Stayed in the water for a non stop solid three hours. Constant paddling, the current was not as bad as it usually is, waves were had. Ran into some of the surfers from duluth and minni, they were scoring some waves at 121.

New Toy

Well I have been playing with my new GoPro HD Hero camera, and so far it is pretty awsome. I left it to take a photo every 30 secs and here is a sample of the final time lapse.

We had some waves from last Thursday. Christmas eve waves. It was unorganized and crazy when we first entered the water. As the morning progressed it started to organize and the waves were definately building. Galeforce winds straight in the face mixed with ice crystals and snow made for some red eyes, but a few good rides were had.

Nice try!

Yesterday's forcast called for some epic surf. Unfortunately I was unable to make it there, so I figured that I would check it out this morning. Well I made my way down first thing this morining hoping that I could catch some clean up swell, but it was not there. Too much northwest too soon pushed it all out. Nice car ride down and telltale signs of epic waves everywhere. Check out the awsomeness over at The Fresh Aspect http://thefreshaspect.blogspot.com/. There are some sweet shots of lake perfection.
