It goes without saying that Cleveland, Ohio is not a surfing tourism destination. Further, most Clevelanders are probably not aware that surfing even happens on the beaches and in the waves of Lake Erie. More surprising still is the fact that this Great Lakes surfing is taking place during the coldest months of the year. You would likely have to be a surfer in Cleveland to know this, but that is when the waves are most surf-able. You have to see it to believe it (and you will) as OUT OF PLACE features great footage of Lake Erie surfing. Listening to the interviews with Cleveland surfers is just as compelling as watching them surf Edgewater beach in November. It is nothing short of inspiring to hear of the passion for surfing and life that drives these die-hards into the icy water armed with only a wet suit and a board. – B.K.
