Cold water flying

Late October weather usually precludes any Lake Michigan water sports unless you’re a polar bear club member.  Still, technology can give an edge for the truly hard-core water lover.  The water temperature off Door County was probably in the 50’s but with a great wind blowing there were people ready to ride the waves.

Looks like lots of fun, zipping along on a wind-propelled surfboard.  There were several people out with their sails and wetsuits – maybe a class for the weekend.  Just the sport for a nice beach bonfire for afterwards with plenty of hot dogs and marshmallows.
