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

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!

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.
