 Additional Information

This is the heaviest wave on the Lakes. A deep, 300 mile-long trench, ends abruptly at Stoney Point. The full brunt of open sea swells release on the rock shelf. It is powerful, beautiful, and very humbling. She breaks best in the winter months, when wave-bring NE winds, turn to the north and crank up. This can cause 2-3 days of non-stop, overhead groundswell.
Low air and water temps tend to keep folks off the peak. Winter's best waves will be seen in 0-15F temperatures, where driving through a blizzard is not uncommon.
The wave piches top-to-bottom, and you can very easily be driven into the boulder strewn bottom; Helmets are a plus.
Stoney will break 15-30 times per year; Of which 15-20 are in the dead of winter.
Keep in mind, it gets blown out very quickly. It's also a place where the offshores can blow so hard you can't paddle into the wave.

Atmosphere

Only the dedicated come to play here. It's brutally cold, and stunningly beautiful. Bob Tema; 18 year Hawaiian veteran-turned Great lakes hellman describes Stoney as , "very similar to Rocky Point.", and "I'd rather get beaten by a 6 foot day at Pipe than a 3 foot day at Stoney". Interesting.

General

My year is based upon saving enough vacation so I can surf Stoney all winter. THE best surf spot on the Great Lakes, without a doubt.

2nd heaviest of the lakes.. - There is a heavier spot further north outside of Grand Marais just before Grand Portage i think around mile marker 138 on highway 61? Wait for a strong SW wind and you will be able to see the point break from 61. I paddled out and paddled right back in! HEAVY!! and yes i have surfed Stoney a number of times when it is big, believe me this spot i'm talking about dwarfs Stoney!
