Quantcast

Surfin’ Superior 2008

Ten years ago — Dec. 10, 2008 — City Pages profiled Duluth surfer Greg Isaacson.

He wore the top half of a diving suit, which gave his arms all the flexibility and natural movement of the Michelin Man. This jerry-rigged outfit, combined with the glacial temperatures of the water, allowed him just 20 minutes of water time.

But the first wave he caught was magic.
