Here comes the story of the Hurricane

September 15, 2008

On Sunday my friends, Tim and Dave, went looking for waves on lake Erie.  With the high winds of hurricane Ike in the forecast we made our way to Crystal Beach, Pleasant Point and Sherkston Shores in search of surfable waves…

Dave points to lack of waves. Next beach.


I’ve mastered the cheesy tourist pose. Touch the object, attempt to smile yet don’t show any real excitement. S.S. Canadiana


The ‘Crystal Beach Crew’ needs some work on their graffitti skills.  Beach looks good though.



Jericho Mile.


Many surfers showed up in the parking lot with dissapointed faces, not enough Ike action to bother getting on the water.  The lack of waves didn’t stop some from getting their boards out.



Here come the waves!! hold on.



I was seriously impressed with the beach (nice sand and warm water). The weather for September 14th was unreal, 26 degrees and about 35 with humidex.


Somehow I knew this wasn’t a good idea.  Basically, this guy was just being lazy and using his truck to get his Sea-doo.  Doesn’t look too bad at this point…


We went for food and drinks and returned in hopes the winds were going to pick up.  Upon returning an hour later the waves were still small and this guy was still there.  It doesn’t pay to be lazy…

The guy was completely stuck.  A Hummer came by and tried to tow it out, no luck.  When we finally left there was a cop at the scene.

At about 8:30pm the wind really picked up and there were most likely some waves.  At that point I was back in the Hammer watching Entourage.  I wonder what the guy with the truck was doing?

A parting scenic shot…

    And I’m seriously unimpressed that you couldn’t work in even one Point Break reference. Bodhi would not be impressed either. Or Johnny Utah.

    Sigh, this made me want to wear my boarding clothes and head on to the beach.
