River waves are really weird.

Rideable standing waves exist on waterways with elevation drops and hard structure that create the wave. Sufficient water flow rate and vertical drop play a role in the wave quality and rideablity.

These waves are weird because you are surfing against a very strong current in a very confined space. This is very different than riding a rolling wave in a large open area like a traditional surfing wave.

Finding and riding these waves are challenging and require a surfboard that is shorter front to back, wider for balance and thicker to float over the churned up water.

Wind driven swells pound the lakes massive shoreline.

Wind driven swells hit the United States longest coastline with rideable waves of all shapes and sizes. As you learn to read the weather and begin traveling the nooks and crannies of the Great Lakes massive shoreline you will be rewarded with great lake surf sessions.

Timing is very critical as swell windows are narrow and short-lived. The Steel City Surfers are closest to Presque Isle State Park in Erie PA and they also travel to the Cleveland Ohio area as well. Point Breaks and Novelty Waves are the norm.

Learn about surfing the snow.

Early snowboarders designed and rode boards that emulated surfing.  As the sport evolved it was influenced and shaped by popular culture.  Gymnastics, Skateboarding, Alpine Skiing and Ski Schools all played a roll in shaping the culture.

Many modern snowboarders have never ridden a wave on a surfboard.  Those whom enjoy surfing the snow now ride and compete on purpose built boards that pay tribute to those original snowboard surfers!
