Atmosphere

If there is a good swell in the late summer or early fall there could be up to 30 people in the water surfing...the vibe is always fun and everybody is stoked. People from all over southern half of michigan and a hand full of people from chicago will show up on a good day...

I smell a skunk! - I've been here on a few strong north to NE winds and the place just wasn't worth the drive. Just like most Lk. Mi breaks, best to save your days off and $ and take a trip to the ocean. Big smiles.

Been skunked - I've been there 2 or 3 times on a north forecast, albeit a minnimal one. Never enough to entice a guy to get in the water, though.New Buf is a beautiful little town, along with the rest of the towns up the Michigan coast. That's worth the trip alone.
