Great Lakes Sasquatch - Bigfoot Isn’t Real and You Can’t Surf on a Lake!?!?

Great Lakes Sasquatch - Bigfoot Isn’t Real and You Can’t Surf on a Lake!?!?

December 21, 2020

#PERMASTOKED, Your #Canadian & #GreatLakes #Surf & #SUP Podcast, Episode 23: Great Lakes Sasquatch – Bigfoot Isn’t Real and You Can’t Surf on a Lake!?!?…Now Available Free for Streaming and Download on the Alexa AppiTunes / Apple Podcasts at https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/permastoked/id1518415157,  DeezerPandoraPodbeanGoogle Podcasts at https://podcasts.google.com/search/permastokedStitcherSpotify at https://open.spotify.com/show/6qsR6lN7M7edO798HSBxpjiHeart RadioTuneIn or wherever you get your podcasts.  You can also Watch the Show on our YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChueUd4VG0WYXN3ky532vzg?.  Be sure to Listen, Rate, Review and Share!

Thanks to depictions like the 1987 hit film, Harry and the Hendersons, we tend to limit sasquatch sightings to the dense rainforest of the Pacific Northwest.  But with over 27.8 million hectares of forest in and around the Great Lakes, could this not make for a perfect Bigfoot vacation destination?  In this episode, Derik Hyatt deviates from the topic of surfing to investigate whether or not sasquatch might be watching you surf at those heavily wooded surf spots on the Great Lakes.  We chat with Olin Fruetel of Great Lake Sasquatch about Great Lakes sightings, his own personal experiences, common threads across encounters, the trauma and recovery process of seeing a sasquatch, surfing sasquatch and sasquatch theories, including the idea that sasquatch are waiting for COVID-19 to destroy the human race so that they may roam more freely!?!?

Be sure to connect with Olin on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/greatlakessasquatch/ or @greatlakessasquatch and don’t forget to read CBC’s Sasquatch reports wanted: new group collecting sightings from Thunder Bay region at https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/thunder-bay/great-lakes-sasquatch-1.5231576.  This episode was recorded on December 9, 2020.  It is family friendly with minimal swearing, but no F-bombs.

During these somewhat dark COVID times, we can often be at risk of surrendering to the doom and gloom of isolation, boredom, and hopelessness; but in the spirit of Christmastime and the Holiday Season, allow yourself to be reminded by our youth that hope lies ahead in both the present and future.  In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Canadian female surfing prodigy, Mathea Olin.  Listen as this 17 year old pro surfer takes this 38 year old kook to school all hour long while she drops wisdom bombs about being yourself, keeping fun at the centre, inspiring others, staying stoked in trying times, training hard, loving what you do, having a growth mindset, and eating ice cream on the road to the Olympics.

Mathea Olin was born on February 2, 2003 in Canmore, Alberta.  At six years old she and her family moved to Tofino, BC where she fell in love with surfing and began competing only four years later.  Her accolades include: winning Canada’s first ever international medals in surfing which included gold in longboard and bronze in shortboard at the 2017 Pan Am Surf Games; and bronze in longboard at the 2019 Pan Am Games.  Mathea’s aspirations include competing in the world Olympics and being the first Canadian to enter into the World Tour.  Keep your sights set on this Queen of the Peak; because as long as she froths for surf, she is bound to make Canadian Surfing Herstory!
