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).
