About Great Lakes Surf Shop
 Most people say "A surf shop on the Great Lakes? What? There's no surf on the Lakes!" The sailors of the Edmund Fitzgerald would have disagreed. Don't forget, these lakes have sunk some pretty big ships and can be quite intimidating even to the seasoned surfer. The wind driven waves here in Michigan can get pretty gnarly. But besides the waves, the still calm waters are another beautiful feature of our great state of resources. Michigan's rivers, inland lakes and all that surrounds them are an incredible gift to us that live here. How lucky we are to have so many great places to explore!
After many years of studying places, products, procedures, cool peeps and all that is exhilirating, they decided to share and help educate like minded amigo's on these incredible board sports. Great Lakes Surf is an expansion of an existing company, Great Lakes Kiteboarding, which has been in business for over 10 years. They have been riding the Great Lakes for 20 years and teaching for 15. Their focus is to provide quality lessons and gear for Kiteboarding, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Skating, Snowboarding, and Snow Kiting. 
Whatever your board sport is, they have the knowledge and experience to get you on the right equipment the right way. 
Great Lakes Surf offers: Excursions, lessons, products and rentals. 
Stand Up Paddleboarding: This unique hybrid of kayaking and surfing is the fastest growing water sport in the world. Michigan's Great Lakes are the perfect place to learn and enjoy this sport because of the flat calm waters and yes, wavse for excellent surfing. SUP is for everyone! Young, old, the uncoordinated, the athlete and even our beloved pets! There are several different ways to enjoy this sport, thus the reason for the diversity of interest. Some do it to see the lake from above, to take a calm glide through the water on a sunny, relaxing afternoon. Many enjoy the challenge of learning classic surfing techniques and the feel of nothing between you and the water but a beautiful surf board.
