Surfin' Superior, dodging ice bergs
I wonder if Visit Duluth will jump all over this bit of national press, from the "Grey Lady" New York Times? Visit Duluth is still bragging about Outside Magazine naming Duluth one of the top 10 outdoor towns, five years ago. The article is about surfing Lake Superior's north shore winter swells, in wet suits and (I love this touch) ski goggles.
I'm a huge multisport North Shore enthusiast, but even this is bordering on crazy. I'd rather ski a frozen river.
