Casey’s Blog:

Wow what a year, 2016 is definitely going down as one of the most fun years in history.¬†It was the windiest year I can ever remember on Da reef and¬†no summer breeze stuff either,¬†when the wind was up it¬†was nuking.¬†I accomplished my goal¬†of 100 days in the waves¬†with ease¬†this year, and also got to surf all 12 months because of the nice warm el-nino winter.¬† Looking back year after year It still blows my mind that you can surf 100+ days on the great lakes and Da reef every year.¬†In¬†common logic that shit doesn’t supposed to happen, but with the right mindset and lifestyle its so doable, Heck I work 6 days a week and I can pull it off no problem, obviously.¬†¬† Hopefully 2017 is a repeat, Life is Good.¬†¬†¬† Now to Da stats!

Back here at Da’ Reef the lake is flat which makes for great sunsets.

This is the last sunset of the summer of 2015.
