The Great Lakes Surf Festival is not a surfing contest and not just a surfing festival. It is a celebration of Great Lakes surf culture and is open to all types of board sports disciplines that enjoy the surf. The Great Lakes surf culture has benefited from a long rich history of prior surf related events such as the revered Dairyland Surf Classic and the King of the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Surf Festival promises to build on this history and pave the way to a rising new generation of Great Lakes surf enthusiasts.
