MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The surf was up in Marquette Wednesday so you know what that means; Surfer Dan was out at Sunset Point catching some waves, some as high as 7-8 feet.

Surfers were also out at Presque Isle, but bigger waves were at Sunset Point. Recently Dan was featured in a film by the outdoor shoe and apparel company Merrell. That film focuses on the rugged and harsh U.P. weather and the interesting people who live here. Surfer Dan says, he enjoys being a part of this along other creative endeavors.

"I'm so happy to be a part of this stuff and that these creative, awesome people are coming here into my life and just helping me do my thing," Dan said. "I hope it inspires people and I just hope everyone enjoys it and that everyone shows up during the film festival."

The Fresh Coast Film fest runs October 18 through the 21. Tickets are $70 for a weekend pass, $35 for a day pass.
