Waves return to Bates Island with the spring melt

The spring melt has begun and water levels are rising causing the waves at Bate Island to form up. Checked out the waves yesterday and ran into fellow photographer John Rathwell preparing for a surf in the icy waters. He headed out many times trying to catch a ride but was unsuccessful before i left. I’m sure he grabbed a few rides as he is a very experienced river surfer.
