This joint breaks on some strange circumstances. In the Fall, look for big NW winds, preferrably a gale. The Left is a treacherous paddle-out, where if you mistime your paddle, you'll end-up washed against a rock fishing pier.
Look for HUGE, prefferably a STRONG gale or Storm-Force winds out of thew W or SW to make the beach break work. It must be +10-14ft off shore for waves to wrap in on a W/SW. But when it does, it's beautiful.
A few yakkers frequent this spot, but is deviod of surfers. A few hardy, intrepid souls, who are in the know, make the trip on big West winds.
Although the summer waves aren't the best, water temps can get up to 70F! Trunkable wave on Lake Superior, whoda thunk it?
Typical Great Lakes atmosphere; Everyone in the line-up is your friend. The waves can get good and BIG on a NW. The Left breaks over bedrock slab, and a strong current can develop.
Closest town is Ontonagon. It has a population of around 1,000, but has about 8 or 9 pubs.
