MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – In the dead of winter, Hawaii might seem like the only place for Minnesotans to hang ten. But a few times each year, the southeast winds blow in up from Canada – kicking up the perfect waves on Lake Superior.

WCCO photojournalist Tom Aviles shows us the brave souls who grab their surfboards and wet suits for one icy ride.

NOTE: The surfers who spoke with WCCO say surfing on Superior can be very dangerous and is not for beginners.
