Reports are coming in from all across the globe that people had a great time and learned a ton.

The big story of the weekend was the weather and more specifically, the waves.

As some of you know, Naturally Superior Adventures is right on the mouth of the Michipicoten River and when the wind blows hard against the current, you get nice standing waves that are great for surfing.

Well, it blew hard (and in the right direction) for most of the weekend giving the participants lots of time to work on their surfing and rescue skills along with some Greenland specific skills (of course!).

But don't take my word for it, Keith Wikle was there as one of the instructors and he a great write-up that makes me extremely jealous. In his report, you can learn about the wind, waves and that bloody nose...but I will let him tell that part of the story.
