That’s Not The Great Lakes…


TransWorld SURF’s Great Lakes correspondent Burton Hathaway has been raving about Lake Superior for a few years now. While we always knew there were surfable waves, Burton’s claims of “double overhead, man!” were largely dismissed—we thought he’d hit his head on one too many chunks of floating ice.

Fast forward to this winter when Red Bull team rider and certified hellman Jamie Sterling made his way to the frozen tundra as a an icy winter storm blasted through the region. When Sterlz is claiming double overhead and sketchy, you know it’s some serious shit.

We were blown away and stand corrected. This clip looks like it was filmed in the Pacific Northwest, not a landlocked body of water in the middle of the USA. You were right Big B!
