A huge storm hit Northern California on Thursday and stirred up the waters of Lake Tahoe enough that surfers were able to catch waves on the lake’s shores.
According to the National Weather Service, the “Pineapple Express” storm (so-called for its Hawaiian origins) caused waves to hit around 7 feet, and conditions were considered “dangerous” for water activities. But that didn’t stop thrill-seekers from putting on their wetsuits and hitting the chilly waters. Surfing is normally only possible on the lake during storms like this.
