RE: Dalhousie Halifax Surfing

Hey,
I was in Australia this summer and miss surfing so much. I'll definitely pitch for gas. I know it's November now, but it's supposed to be 15 degrees this Saturday!

and as we all know, surf quality depends on air temp.

RE: Dalhousie Halifax Surfing

If you must come here, please stick to the beachbreak at Lawrencetown. You are simply not welcome elsewhere, especially if you are visibly incompetent, and are not at least a YEAR-ROUND familiar face.
I am expecting most of you to ignore this so:
DO NOT paddle for the shoulder when you are sitting inside. If there is any doubt, paddle for the whitewater and stay out of the way. DO NOT show up six to a car. DO NOT blab to your friends in the bar back home in Ontario about the surf, although I realize it's difficult to not constantly talk about yourself. Finally, at least try to familiarize yourslef with some of the ettiquette and politics that go with surfing. This way you at least become less of a nuisance.

"increasingly annoyed"

Do you have any other suggestions that would make us all better people?

You bitch at people for surfing in Ontario, then you bitch at them to stay away from the East coast.

How as citizens of Canada and obviously your minions may we seek to make you happy?

On a serious note. Travellers to the Hfx area should be respectful (as should locals) and if learning, the beach break really is the best spot to be. It is a lot more fun to learn without worrying about running into or being run in to others.

RE: Dalhousie Halifax Surfing

just for the record; there is absolutely nothing wrong with people from ontario (or anywhere else) surfing in nova scotia. there are, however, many things wrong with IDIOTS (from anywhere) surfing in nova scotia... i.e. those who dont know the rules, dont show respect, dont stick to the beach break until they gain at least a rudimentary level of proficiency, think they are gods gift because they own a crappy 8ft BIC longboard that they bought at Cleves and paddle it out at some of the best spots even though they cant stand up on it, etc. If you are one of these people... get a clue, pay your dues, dont paddle straight to the peak and expect to get set waves, dont expect to be handed respect on a silver platter, and for christ's sake, get rid of the BIC.

True that kid, the only thing is,  dont judge someone by what they surf on, judge them on how they surf and how they treat fellow surfers.  the rest you said, I back you up on!
