Crazy to think of 30ft waves, and consistent 20ft+ waves for over 12 hours.

Some video's I took years ago. Here are reported 17-22ft waves outside the harbor. (looks less to me)



Some bros BRAAAPIN on 10-14 footers

Headed to the U.P. after work tomorrow to do some riding. We're staying in Ontonagon county. Guess I should pack a chain saw.

My dads friend been on the lake 40+ years.

Told me a few years ago. You will get ONE nice week in October. It will be warm and the lake will be smooth. Take the boat out and enjoy it, then put it in storage. After that all hell will break loose.

(I put the boat away last week)

He has been right the past few years.

This was me on my Ultra 150 in probably 8-10 foot waves back in 2003/2004 at Whiting, IN. I can't imagine going out in waves that are 15' plus...

Good eyes! Our PWCs were pretty evenly matched. His was better in rougher chop, and mine was a bit more nimble and better at jumping. Similar top end and acceleration from what I recall. It was a fun time to have no responsibilities and go out to the lakes every weekend.
