Erie Squalls

Erie Shekston

Drive down back&forth through sun&rain,not looking promising....15 minutes from Erie hit wall of wind...pull onto beach... reasonable wind no one on beach or on water....tough call on rig choice as wind is squalling solid 5.5 then lulling out.Chance 5.3 head out planning some lulls but plane through.....Rain squalls moving down American side ramping up wind then lulling it out...few gear changes...some nice waves bigger swells downwind of reef..cleaning up into afternoon....

Sherkston delivers.
