Randy Carlson and these guys are a great example of "the will of the wave." Love their stoke!

Actually, surf culture on Lake Superior is quite strong. 
Lake Superior surfers have their own website and a very active discussion group. 

And read a New York Times article about it here:
Hanging 10 (Degrees) on Icy Lake Superior 

Or a local article here:

Here's a longer but lower res excerpt from the same movie which is called Unsalted, I forgot to mention.  It's by Michigan native Vince Deur, he did the midwest premiere here in Duluth in 2005
