Surfing Georgian Bay

« on: March 11 2007 20:03:00 »

I just moved to the Georgian Bay area and I am wondering if there are any other surfers in the area that would fill me in on some good spots. Don't worry, I wont bring 10 people with me. I have been surfing Lake Huron for the past 5 years before I moved. I understand surf etiquette and I'm not a kook, I simply want to find a good spot close to home.(Orillia Ont)
Any tips would be appreciated.

yea, i surf at wasaga beach all the time in the summer. on a day with a goo NW or West wind, u can get a pretty long ride, and the waves get 2-3 meters when u go out further. Its all sandbar, no rocks, the waves are pretty powerfull too.

good luck!

Hey there!

Yeah Matt, I too am from Orillia and want to begin surfing this summer/fall.  I am in the process of planning out my surfboard, which I hope to have built by August.  

We should network further - get a 'Central Ontario' group going, as we all need to drive at least an hour or so to get to anything good.

Guys, in your area, check out the originsurf website for local info on waves, sharing rides, gear, etc.

Tons of local lakesurfers on there.
Hope you score on Georgian.  Some friends also surf out of Meaford.

RE: Surfing Georgian Bay and tip from Craigleith

« Reply #7 on: July 18 2007 13:07:00 »

Hello,
I am not a windsurfer, but I see people enjoying the challenges.
I live in Craigleith, just west of Collingwood, and I see people windsurfing from North Winds Beach. North Winds Beach is just a stone's throw ( almost!) from the junction of Blue Mountain Road ( also known as Grey County Road 19) and Highway 26 in Craigleith.
Another place that seems quite popular for windsurfers is Sunset Point Park in Collingwood. However it is quite rocky in that area.
Lastly, try Balm Beach. I see windsurfers and kite surfers there on a regular basis. Much like Wasaga Beach, it is sandy.
There is lots of parking there too at the township park.
Good luck!
George Czerny,
Craigleith, Ontario.

Hey, I'm up in Ottawa but will be working near Georgian Bay off and on over the fall and will be looking to surf on weekends if it ever goes off. I'm deffinitely in for a central Ontario surf group.
Anyone know what speed winds kick up a good wave?
Also, I read on this site that localism is high there. Hard to believe for lake surfing, but I guess if there's not many waves to begin with the last thing you want to do is share them with more people.
