People always ask what SAMA means. It started as kind of a joke. It was a sleeting, snowy day in early December. My friend and I were surfing a swell in Grand Haven. I looked over at him knowing we were supposed to both be at pre-Christmas family functions soon, and said "We are like Self Absorbed Michigan Adventurers." That kind of stuck, and like many of our friends we have a common passion for outdoor sports in Michigan, and we go out in any weather to get our sessions. He replied "Ya, SAMA!"

So it was born, the SAMA logo was fashioned by another like minded surfer friend from Grand Haven. SAMA is for all of you year round Michiganders and vacationers who know, love, and respect all the outdoor activities there are to do in Michigan. No matter the weather you will find us us out enjoying all the benefits of our unique freshwater paradise.

The next SAMA sessions

Friends over the Pacific HV20 from Shawn Cordon on Vimeo.

I think this is the answer to our no wind activities! I have been checking out a facebook friends photos of paramotoring and I am getting super stoked. Of course it is the perfect no wind activity for all those session starved SAMAistas. How sweet would it be launching and flying over dunes at sunset check out all the beach tourists! I am checking into the schools, who is with me?

End of Summer Speed Star? Skydive Allegan!

Who is up for a little end of the summer speed star? Some guys drink, smoke, all you got to do is jump Johnny.....Just remember to pull that little cord, the life you save might be your own.

We are thinking about mid to end of September. Discount for more people in the class, lets get the SAMA crew out and take it past the edge!

Kurt Vincent could be the next Vince Deur!

Out Of Place Trailer from Kurt P Vincent on Vimeo.

Well folks, it looks like our buddy Vince isn't the only one with the itch to tell the story of the Great Lakes Surfer. This trailer looks pretty cool and also appeals to the "story to be told" genre.
