Sandy is having an impact close to home. The hurricane is stirring up chop on the Great Lakes. The National Weather Service is forecasting huge waves on Lake Michigan tonight. This could be a boon for Michigan's surfers. When I was a kid up north with my family, we found a surfboard washed up on the beach on northern Lake Huron. We always wondered where it had come from. Turns out there is a small but dedicated group of surfers in Michigan. Their story is chronicled in Unsalted, the authoritative documentary on Great Lakes Surfing.
