Surfing Capital of the Midwest??

Until recently, Dan and I were not aware that the town we live in–Sheboygan, Wisconsin, is considered the surfing capital of the midwest. And even more strange, autumn marks the beginning of the freshwater lakes surfing season. Like little black ants, the surfers, covered  head to toe in wetsuits dot the lake whenever the waves pick up. Sometimes, I think the surfing is just an excuse for them to stand around on the shore, haning out and drinking a few beers. Either way, we always love it when we take the lake road home and there are guys in the water. Today I just happened to have my camera along, so I was able to catch a few shots. I was too shy to get out of my car and take pictures of these strangers, so I opted for digital zoom instead. The last picture is of a cameraman who was filming the surfers. Maybe they’re working on another movie like this one . Watching the surfers is definitely a perk to living on Lake Michigan. Who knew, when we moved to Wisconsin, that we’d be watching surfing from the shore?
