This video by Erik Wilkie documents a Sept. 3 surf outing at Stoney Point on Lake Superior, just south of Knife River.
Once again Brent Eliason of Ease Drones has captured some exceptional aerial video of Lake Superior surfers at Stoney Point. The footage is from Dec. 28.
“All the surfers in this video were killing it!!!” Eliason wrote in the YouTube description. “My favorite shots are between 2:20 and 2:40. At 2:20 you will see UMD’s Randy Carlson just dominating on the SUP.”
Yes, this is the third time in two weeks that Perfect Duluth Day has featured a Lake Superior surfing video. It just happens to be what people are making good videos about these days. This one is the second surf video by Jasper Meddock Productions, shot on April 20 at Stoney Point, about seven miles north of Duluth in Duluth Township. The music is “Quick Musical Doodles” by Two Feet.
If you don’t know, the year’s best meteor shower happens next week, in the wee hours of the morning of Aug. 11, 12 and 13. From what I read, the Perseids are one of the most active showers, with up to 50 meteors an hour – should be a nice show!
I’m hoping to get out and watch a bit; I’m wondering if anyone has any favorite or secret spots? Although there are nice bare spots above Skyline or along Park Point, I’m hoping to escape the glare of city lights. I was thinking Stoney Point might be nice, or perhaps Gooseberry? If someone has suggestions of closer spots, that’d be even better.
