Damn! First time I've checked replies to this postaing in ages - last time there was only one, now there's 9!
Anyway, thanks guys for the tips. Rob, sorry I missed you & Adam when you came this way recently. How was it? I still don't have any gear yet anyway, but I would've enjoyed watching for the time being - still a bit cold for this Aussie. Next time.
Ryan, are you in or near Kingston? Have you seen these breaks work? I wondered myself about that spot you mentioned near Dupont there - thought it had potential. Contact me if you wanna chat or get together. I'd welcome a surf buddy & I have another mate here interested. Who knows - "Kingston surf club"??!!

Hey, this post is crazy. I've lived in Kingston for 18 years, surfed there for the last 2. Big south west winds are the best, and waves get too choppy after 5 feet. There is a place we've named Big Rock, it is down sunny acres road, and you have to walk east along the shore to see it. usually windsurfers go there to get air. We mostly wakeboard and sail in Kingston. Montreal has got a wicked surf scene and then Hampton beach is about 4 hours from there, the waves there are great all year round.

Oh yeah one other thing, the wave in Montreal is static always there beaut on the river. Surf 66 in montreal is a good shop to get stuff. I'm living there now for school, but give me an e-mail in the summer and we could try to get something going, if not there is always wind/wake surfing.

whatsup simon. looks like im in the same boat as you... the only places ive heard of people surfing around here in sand banks and on fort henry point right next to the rmc campus. havnt been able to try either of them since i dont have any gear yet. thinkin about checkin out another spot on wolfe island though - big sandy bay - which im thinkin would have a nice beach break with a s-sw wind. im gonna try get out there next time theres good wind and check it out. ill let ya know how it is.

Jr Kingston, Ryan, Ben,
Once again hadn’t checked the forum for ages, but do let me know how you go at great Sandy Bay or anywhere else for that matter. I still haven’t got gear yet and can only travel so far without guaranteed waves, but I’m hoping a few of us around the area could get together & find a few spots for fun. I’m desperate for even small, sloppy surf. Been told a lot about Great Sandy Bay, and we can all see what they say about Picton, but haven’t seen it yet myself. Drop me an email if you like. Who knows - "Kingston surf club"??!! (Travelling club of course!)

Seano, I'm definitely interested in any pics & info you could share. Are you still around the area? I'm still working up the cash for a board but everything I see advertised is a BIC/beginner board, or if it's from anywhere nearby it costs a fortune! I'd need at least a 7'2".
RE: Surfing near Kingston, ON« Reply #8 on: June 07 2006 07:06:00 »
better stick with at least a 9' board for lake waves or youll quit due to frustrated you cant catch any waves.

Hey guys, just moved to the area, didn't even realize surfing was going to be possible around here. So what's the verdict on Big Sandy Bay? How did it go? And, where the nearist surf shop where you can rent a board?
