Casey’s Blog: Well I gotta keep the Action going! Conditions have been amazing this November on Da reef. Enjoy the flight.😉😁
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.
