Ohio Street swim - big waves and surfing
Went down to Ohio street beach Sunday September 30, 2009 for my usual swim and to my liking big winds were driving from the north down lakeshore and driving big surf with it. Wate temp was 62f. Neither were a problem and good experience in guessing 3-5 foot waves. Being within a couple hundreds yards of the sea wall also brought reflection waves out against me. Focused on being relaxed and stroking through (or in most cases down the face of waves). Was a shorter swim but fun. Oh yeah, no wetsuit.
