We have a good spot in West MI that we ride on an East. Tomo is supposed to blow hard, but chance for some t-storms (which sometimes never materialize or miss us) if we're not kiting we might be sailing if that's of interest...or you could take a chance and go to Tawas on the East side of MI...and/or if fx changes (and it does often and quickly around here) you might be able to hit Kettle Point (gets great waves sometimes) in Southern Ontario, just East of Sarnia. I often stop there when I drive to/from the East Coast. Cutting thru CN is a good alternative route to NY for me. If you pit stop in Port Huron you can easily make it to Buffalo (gas is more expensive in CN...and a friend just said he paid $17 for a six pack in Toronto...sheesh!) You might need a passport at the border cross.
Not sure how much of a hurry you're in, but Muskegon would probably add 3-4 hours to your trip, Tawas probably +6-8 hrs...you can chart it yourself and see.
There are some spots on Lake Erie but I'm not personally familiar with them.
If you're interested bell me on 847.477.2976 and I can give more details.
