Ohio is lucky to have a treasure like Lake Erie.
I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

I like the icy winter shots and the roaring water from the Spring runoff.

Those are gorgeous. I can't say I ever say anyone stand up paddle boarding on the lake, and I often wondered why, it seems like it would be perfect in the summer.

I always get the lighthouses in Lorain, Fairport Harbor, and Ashtabula mixed up. Which one is this?

Scenes like that mrnyc are what make me believe that Ohio doesn't do enough to market itself. If more people knew you could sit back and look at a view like that I think they would think differently about our state.

For now we're just a state full of snow and corn to the masses. lol.

Nice pic!

Exactly. Call Ohio "coastal" and yes, you get funny looks from people who should know better.

Ohio has more state border covered in water than any other inland state outside of Michigan.  Reputation or lack thereof might be Ohio's biggest hurdle on the path to relevance.

I just flew back from New York over Lake Erie, and there is unbelievable ice cover. It seems way more than normal. Prime photo ops for people in Ohio to go out and ice hike!

Some historic pics and comments from my good friend,  Neal Luoma.

Neal is a retired longshoreman who grew up and still lives in Saybrook, a quiet coastal town just east of Geneva-on-the-Lake. His family ran a campground that was very popular at one time. Working class families from Youngstown and Pittsburgh would spend there summers there, swimming and camping along the beach.

during the 1950's Neal picked up surfing while on trips to Florida with his family. He brought his passion for waves back to Ohio and naturally he taught the kids at the campground to surf. By the end of the 1960's there was a vibrant, if hidden, surfing community in Saybrook, Ohio, all thanks to Neal.

Gradually over-development and rising lake levels led to erosion that wiped out many of the sand beaches, and people stopped coming up to the Lake. The coastal resort towns like Geneva were hit hard, and looked destined for ruins. For quite a few years Neal was the only surfer in Ohio.

When surfing here started to get popular again in the 1990's, Neal was there to share generous advice on tracking storms and finding the best wave spots for every weather condition. So many years later he's still out there in the water, and his Surfers Point Campground is still open for business. Stop in and say hi!

That's really cool. I was just in Florida at the beginning of the month and the surf off Juno beach wasn't much different than what that guy is surfing on.

So I have always wondered how surfing on Lake Erie works. Are surfing conditions most optimal when the beaches are typically closed for unsafe rip-tide? And are the best waves in the fall, winter, and early spring?

^What I've seen the most on all the lakes is fall surfing. The Gales of November seem to bring people out. It's wetsuit surfing, similar to what you see in Northern California. Water temperatures are actually similar on the lakes that time of year (50-60 degrees in early November and dropping throughout the month). I haven't seen anyone beyond November. In December, the water can get down to 40 degrees, and ice can start forming on the edges even before the official start of winter if it's a bad year (I used to see this in Toledo where the water is shallow).

I've been snapping cell phone pics of Lake Erie from downtown vantage points in various stages of freeze/thaw for the last couple weeks.  I find it fascinating.
