Michigan surfers catch waves on Lake Superior during polar vortex
MARQUETTE, Mich. – A couple of Michigan surfers decided to take on the icy cold waters of Lake Superior during last week's polar vortex.
Daniel Schetter from Marquette and Allen Finau were photographed by Devon Hains Photography as they caught waves on Lake Superior in sub-zero temperatures.
The men were covered in ice after leaving the water, which made them look almost cartoon-like in appearance.

The surfers actually did something similar back in 2017:
