Lake Tahoe Storm Surf

December 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

December 11, 2014 was a day that will be remembered for possibly the best surf-able waves Lake Tahoe has ever seen.  Wind speeds exceeded 100mph over the sierra crest and sustained 60mph over the cold blue waters of Lake Tahoe.  The waves that started on the south shore of Lake Tahoe turned into 6-7 foot waves by the time they reached the north shore.  Surfers, kayakers, and other water enthusiasts sprinkled the waters of nearly every north shore beach with ridable waves.  

The following photos were taken from a beach in Incline Village, NV.

The best waves on the lake, however, were probably in Agate Bay near Tahoe City.  Here's proof.
