I was hoping to go up there a few weeks ago, but I know next to nothing about the riding spots and decided not to go it alone in 10-12' waves/40+ kt wind by myself in unfamiliar territory. I would love to learn more about the various spots up there. This would be the year to go...water temps are at record high. May not see that again in our lifetime (OK, maybe not in MY lifetime)

I'm just getting back from a 12 day East Coast road trip today, so there is no way I'm able to go to Superior this weekend...plus there will be 4 more days of nukin winds right here in MKG with waves...what a nice welcome home!!! They said it was 10'+ here yesterday on the 3rd bar, but very on-shore. 6' sets inside the pier heads.
