burlington, ON Surfing

Hey, looking for someone to surf with in burlington with a whole lot of patience. Have only surfed as a young kid, and then only long board experience (over 20 years ago).  I am 32 now and want learn how-never too late, I suppose.  Looking to get started late summer/early fall 2006, as I am trying to figure out how to get started and really just trying to talk the wife into letting me do so-she doesn't think you can surf in a lake.  If interested, drop me an e-mail at the above address.  Take care.

RE: Surfing Ontario

less talk more surfing; from these forums you would think the surfing population here is in the hundreds but since November its been the same 5-10 guys out...Everybody here is really approachable and helpfull and some of the boys are extremly knowlegable on weather winds etc. no excuses as long as you have the proper equiptment.   Port Credit area folks anytime theres waves here its really blown out and shitty and no wind protection, head down lakeshore towards oakville and burlington , or hamilton...burlington has some nice protected spots however getting in and out a little sketchy...if there is size in Port Credit on a NE wind you can bet  futher East or West will be far better and less of a paddle

i would never surf onshore slop!!! lets get that staight!!! i however have been surfing in an OCEAN for 11 years!!! the guy eddie who put up the second post eddie is a complete and total goof!!! youve probably never surfed any kind of heavy wave and probably never will so as i said before go buy some water skis or a kite board!!!

RE: Surfing Ontario

So if you have never even step foot into one of our lakes, how can you possibly make comments about them? all you are doing is making yourself look stupid, and what you fail to realize is that lake surfing can and has equaled ocean surfing on many time, i have seen it with my own eyes. And on the plus side, lake surfers are all about the stoke and having a good time, there are no pompis jackass (ie. you!) to ruin the time...so why don't you stick to your side of surfing and keep your mouth shut about things you don't know....thanks

If anybody knows of any shops that sell used/new surfboards can you e-mail me.  Also what would be the best wetsuit to use for all year long surfing.
