RE: Surfing Ontario

Hey.. just took a quick look at the lake on my way to work...(didnt get a really good look as I was running late as usual!!)
But from what I saw it was looking pretty big but I couldnt really see all that well how messy or clean it was..Didnt get a chance to check out the pier, so I dont know what the conditions are like there...will probably go by on my lunch though....

RE: Surfing Ontario

Went up to kincardine again today, and im not sure if its just the way the lakes r or if was another bad day, but it was choppy, windy and nothing even surfable unless u went way out.  Can anyone tell me if this is just the reality of lake surfing, or am i picking bad spots at bad times?

RE: Surfing Ontario

I went to Bayfield and it was solid. I not an expert regarding conditions. Been about 6 times on the lakes., but recommend thinking about wind direction and piers or jetties. From what i've experienced and heard that works best. Choppy is the name of the game, but with big board lots of rides are to be had.
the book Sufing the great lakes suggest wind direction. There were some solid size waves where i was today, and locals said it had been better on Sunday.

if u fellas are describing the surf, could u give a wave face estimate eg shoulder height, head high, double overhead. saying a wave is solid is hard for me to understand as have never surfed a lake before. i usually surf the SW of Western Austalia where u can get a solid 3 foot beachie or a hollow 10 foot point break.  cheers fellas

Surfing Mississauga, ON

I´m returning home in June, to Mississauga, from Colombia and would love to surf the local waves.  I learned in Oz a few years ago, got a bit better in Costa Rica, just came back from Panama, and will hopefully be riding waves in Colombia in April (but am still in the beginner stages).  My original home is Port Credit and I would be pumped to hook up with anyone who wants to test out those waters or head to another Great Lakes spot.  This is pretty exciting!

RE: Surfing Ontario

I grew up on Lake Winnipeg and put in a few years commercial fishing.  Just started surfing this year in Mexico and I think it's possible on Lake Winnipeg.  I'm getting a board and trying this spring. The waves are biggest in the Spring and Fall.  They roll near Gimli. Good Luck.

G'Day Mate,
Just moved to ontario from Sydney and am looking for waves too.  Just wondering if you had any luck? I saw your messages on the surfers forum.

Any help would be appreciated.
