Surf’s up in the big lake

Surfers brave early autumn temperatures to catch a curl

Among a number of surfers enjoying the waves of Lake Superior on the south side of Presque Isle in Marquette on Sunday are Riley Meier, front, a senior at Northern Michigan University majoring in digital cinematography from Boyne City, and Jack Schall, an NMU junior majoring in environmental studies from Mundelein, Ill. Meier said this is his third year of freshwater surfing as he also enjoys catching waves on Lake Michigan, while Schall is freshwater surfing for the second year but has also surfed in Florida and California.
