Biggest waves I’ve had on Lake Huron

Postby ap888 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 2:50 am

This session was wild easy some of the biggest waves I have ridden on the lake.. later on just b4 sun went down I just about couldn’t hold down my 5m neo im estimating 50knot gusts the water off the waves was stinging my face I would say the odd waves where at least 2.5m guy taking photos didn’t get any of smacking lips or any big floaters but thought I would share...been kiting since 2007 and prob only had maybe 1-2 sessions this much wind the gusts where mental and waves where legit size for a lake..

My family has a cottage at Inverhuron. I spoke to my uncle yesterday, he said it was the biggest surf on the lake he can recall ... and he's been going there 50 years! It wiped out the fire pit, which is quite a ways up from the shore. Good on ya for scoring some. PS is that Kincardine?

Great pictures kudos to the photograph! I'm jealous I have had a 5m for years and I haven't been able to use it yet on the water only on the snow!

Nice! Was a good day on the Canadian side of Huron.

The biggest Great Lake wave day I’ve had was about 8 yrs ago. Gusts to 58 mph. Here’s a few pics from that sesh
