lots of driving around to get to the waves and the good breaks, also very windy and cold cold water.

WOW! Just found this site. Have boogieboarded in flordia a few times and have lived in NL my whole life but never knew you could surf here. Am interested it in giving it a go, where can I buy some gear in St. John's? Can anyone give me some more information on where to go to find the breakers?

Newfoundland surf sucks and the people who do surf are half nutz and will slash your tires if you try to find the few breaks they have

i'm not sure if the guy who first posted got any responses or not... but i'm a beginner surfer, here on the avalon and wondering if anybody had some luck figuring out some decent spots??
any windsurfers drop me a line too, it'd be alright to get a group of us together for the summer...

I traveled to Newfoundland last september looking for hurricance surf. The locals weren't friendly but they didn't seem agressive - until I came back from a solo session to find my windsheild smashed and the rest of ny gear stolen. Be careful.

you must of had Ontario plates or something. Newfs are the friendliest people. I dont believe you unless you gace them a reason or werent friendly yourself.

Don't get me wrong. Most Newfs I've met very friendly and helpful, most Hawaiins are the same. However, all bets are off if you want their waves or their women. Locals are locals wherever they're from.

I'm in St Johns right now looking for someone to go surfing with... and in turn... someone to buy a few brews for. I generally surf on the other side of Canada. I'm a Victoria-ite here to work for a bit. I'd be happy to return the favour if ever you come to the left coast. Sincerely stoked, Dean.
