dude, people have lifes they cant just move for the sake of surfing. i'm from morocco and i could surf there whenever i felt like it, even everyday , but since i moved to toronto, i've been dying to surf anything even a half foot ripple for crying out loud.

i know a couple of guys from school here at rmc in kingston and they go surf right next to the campus on a some measily pointbreak. ive been meaning to get out there and check it out, but winter and ice right now are kinda gettin in the way of that. there are a couple of other spots id like to check out too, one being 'sandy banks' near picton. i havnt heard of anyone surfing it but im sure with the right wind it'd be a pretty sick beachbreak for around here. anyway boss, heres something for ya to maybe work with. if you hear of any other spots around kingston let me know.

you have to adapt to what your area suits! people in morroco dont try to snowboard! if you moved to toronto to make more money than i guess money is more important to you! i wont leave the ocen for NOTHING!!! i would sooner stay poor and have nothing than move to ontario or any land locked province! its just funny all of you inlanders talking about surfing who have never even seen the ocean thats all.

"people in morroco dont try to snowboard! "
Ever heard of the Ajax mountains? It's snowboarding, dude!
Don't jump on people who want the stoke, buy them a ticket to Hawaii, instead.
