Sleeping Bear Surf and Kayak started by selling and renting surfboards, skimboards and body boards, giving lessons and doing repairs.
Empire Beach is snaked with tracks from fat tire bikes, parked cars carry surfboards on their roofs, and the phrase "SUP" raises fewer eyebrows.
Skrocki said surfers are a friendly group, as long as no one's crowding their waves, and she wants to keep up the sport's positive reputation.
