Surfs Up! on MSU's Red Cedar River
Surfing in Mid-Michigan?! This was the scene on the Red Cedar on MSU's campus last week. MSU students surfing the river when it was under a flood warning from all the rain. Apparently, there's a spot in the river where a shallow line of boulders creates a wave known as the "east swell" But the conditions have to be just right. The owner of Matuli Paddle Surf, Joe Matulis, who graduated from MSU says he was the first to surf the wave back in 2004. He says it's a lot of fun, but not a good spot for beginners.
