Plan your surfing sessions on the Great Lakes with surfradar.info! See summary of surf conditions and wave forecast for the Great Lakes for the USA and Canada. Drill down to the current buoy data and web cams for select spots. Best forecasts for surfers, bodyboarders, kiters, fishermen, yachtsmen and boaters on lake Ontario, lake Erie, lake Michigan, lake Huron and lake Superior. The Great Lakes surf forecast is refreshed every 3 hours from Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System (GLCFS). Normally, the fun begins with reported waves of 3 ft (0.91 m), but still, please double check with the nearest buoy or surf-cam and read the Disclaimer. Currently we have surfcams at dashboards for Port Stanley ON, Sauble Beach ON by Sauble Trading Post, Grand Bend ON, Kincardine ON, Fifty Point ON (near Hamilton), Toronto ON, Rochester NY, Chicago IL, Holland MI (Grand Haven is nearby). There are also weather cams (surf line is not seen): Erie PA, Mentor, OH.
