One part obsession, one part addiction and an unending quest for adventure makes Great Lakes Surfers a truly rare breed.
Add 40-knot winds, 15 foot waves and frigid temperatures to a storm ravaged inland sea and they'll tell you it's a recipe for fun.
Join filmmaker and surfer, Vince Deur on a road trip around 5 Great Lakes to meet the surfers who have made surfing these stormy waters a way of life for nearly 40 years.
He is searching for the answer to the most obvious question: why they bother? Why would a lawyer, an artist, a fireman and a retired factory worker all immerse themselves into such a harsh environment? What is it they are really looking for?
"Unsalted" is an adventure of the spirit. It makes the case for un-wavering optimism in the face of adversity. And it makes this landlocked group of surfers, just a little better for it.
