Lake Michigan surfers enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime surfing experience thanks to the remains of Hurricane Sandy.
Lake Michigan isn't on the top of many surfer's bucket lists, but thanks to superstorm Sandy the lake may be one of the most ridable waves in America today.
Surfer Nick Rymut told the Northwest Indiana Times, "We don't get waves very often, so when we get 'em, you gotta go. It's a lot of whitewater and the waves are pretty blown out, so it's a little harder to get out because the currents are pretty strong, but on days that it's a little calmer, you'll see 30 people out."
While these guys were stoked, other Illinois residents couldn't believe their eyes. Social media users jumped online Tuesday to share their reactions to the lake surfers.
