Recently, a low-pressure storm system passed over the Midwest, which sent snow, wind, and waves across Lake Superior. As Midwest surfers descended on the North Shore of Minnesota’s most notorious breaks, Minneapolis videographer Alison Rogers, of Pranalens, linked up with local lake surfer Alex Brost, of Idol Surfboards to capture the scene.
“Ali and I were introduced through a mutual friend when she expressed interest in documenting Great Lakes surfing. She was onboard for an adventure the moment I told her a swell was on the way. We spent a few days together chasing waves, and it just happened to be one of those rare swells where all the conditions came together perfectly.” Brost states.
Circumstances escalated quickly when professional surfer Alex Gray (orange surfboard) arrived on the scene and showed the true potential of Great Lakes waves.
The following is a glimpse into the Great Lakes surf experience as captured by Alison Rogers on the Lake Superior swell of March 15-18, 2016.
