You may lick out on 2 to 3 foot surf. Go to the north side of the island.  Thats only chance at all in fidning waves,goodluck. PS bring a skimboard

RE: SURFING In P.E.I

Hey....just moved to PEI last fall from Halifax.  Before I moved here I had heard rumors of possible surf on the north shore between North Rustico and Cavendish.  I spent some time in the fall driving this stretch but didn't see any really viable swell.  If there's any locals who read this and would be willing to show me some good breaks on a decent day, I'd be much obliged.  Call or send me an e-mail: mhthomps@dal.ca or 367-0808.

Cheers
Myles

RE: SURFING In P.E.I

In late August, on a strong NE wind (25K+), I saw nice clean sets of very big waves (California big) off the beach in front of Bothwell Haven cottages.  This was the only visible section (from the road) of several miles of beach between Bothwell and Basin Head, so there are likely more good spots.

Bothwell is a southside beach, so sandbar and NE wind creates one heckuva wave.  To my knowledge no one has surfed this area.  I am not 100% sure how to access the area directly below those cottages, but locals could probably suggest the nearest access point.

If you surf here, please post a report.  

PS If the surfing is no good, there are several great locations for kiting.

RE: SURFING In P.E.I

Just moved here from California, and obviously the waves aren't great. Don't take a surf trip here. But if you happen to be here you can catch some pretty fun, long boardable waves. I even got one fun day on my Fish! It takes some north wind for a couple days, and some hunting. They aren't great, and even when the waves are decent sized they are pretty crumbly because you are almost always surfing in onshore winds. BUT that said, I don't want to give my best spot away (I know there's no competition for waves on the island, but old habits die hard), but you can occasionally grab some decent, fun waves with offshore winds if you watch the conditions and time it right! There's no "I'll surf after/before work" here-when the conditions are good you drop everything and go!
