« on: October 05 2006 22:10:00 »

As I mentioned in my sept 7th post her i am a photojurnailst for a European press agency and I am coming to Nova Scotia to surf and do surfing and hiking stories.
I arrive on Oct 10. I will be staying in the south and surfing with friends until the 14th, when I will be returning to Halifax. I have from the 15-18th to do surfing expoloration north. I wil either concentrate on immeddiate coast norht or head up to Cape Breton. If anyone has any info or is intereted in being my guide for thre days let me know.
I will take care of car and hotel expenses, all you need is food money. If anyone wants me to shoot them surfing during this period also let me know when and where you think it will be good

I want to apologize for the idiot who told you to F off...I just got back from a trip out East. I'm from Toronto and I wanted to try the surf out in Nova Scotia. I stayed for 1 month and the surf was shit. The locals treat it like its Australia. They are all a bunch of brats who don't even know what surfing is all about. I've been to Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, South Africa and California for surf. I've met amazing people, I've respected the surf lifestyle and shared so many great experiences. I thought I would share the sport with my fellow canadians and try my home waters. I got there and the people were nice, the towns were beautiful but the local surfers were ignorant selfish brats!

Give it up!  There is always going to be locals who are interested in protecting their spots and will always be poachers looking to find someones slice of heaven.  So why go out and look for it, if you find it keep it a secret.  Most locals have no problem with outsiders as long as they don't come in big groups. And if your a beginner, learn some rules before you paddle out. If it looks like a primo wave leave it to the locals and go down the road to the juke spot until you can handle the primo.
