Third Coast Surf Shop
Lonely Planet review
First up, surfing. Believe it, people: you can surf Lake Michigan, and the VW bus- driving dudes at Third Coast Surf Shop will show you how. They provide wetsuits and boards for surfing, skim boarding and paddle boarding. For novices, they offer 1½-hour lessons right from the public beach Thursday to Sunday from June through to August (and Saturdays in September). Board rentals cost $15/25 per half-/full day. Wet suits cost $10/15 per half-/full day. Lessons (equipment included) cost $45/65 for group/private instruction. The surf shop is in New Buffalo, Harbor Country's biggest town.
