Big SW on Lake MI
« on: January 18, 2013, 02:29:41 PM »
I grabbed this photo off a webcam 60 miles south of me.  The pier light there is around 45 feet tall.  With huge wind gusts and the slight onshore angle of the wind it would have been victory at sea conditions out there.  I had to have a tooth pulled today or I would have gone out if I could have gotten someone else to go with me.  I know some guys went out 30 miles south of me on prone boards.  It would have been even bigger here near my home but, as you can see, pretty junky waves.

Edited:  Rats!  It wont let me post the photo and now I cant delete this anticlimactic post.  Sorry!

It's simple, either you get the wave or the wave gets you.

Here's the webcam address

But my screen grab was cool...sun going down, massive spray well above a 40 foot pier light.  Big breaking waves outside with a group of overhead peelers had nice staggered pockets all lined up.  For real.

Thanks for positing that link to the webcam, dude!

Man, lived in Holland for years and never knew that existed.
