RE: New Brunswick Surf????

There is a small beach at Cape Enrage that I've heard is good for surfing.  I've seen waves up to about 4 feet there.
Since it's a bit out of the way, you might want to call the park before you head out.

I've surfed at the Miscou Lighthouse, on Miscou Island, perfect conditions when it's been windy from the east. Best time to go is just when the wind start to drop. It was around five feet, long right hand wave with cobblestone bottom, which makes this perfect for a point break.
Nice place to.

New River beach Provincial park located near point lepreau (about 15 to 20 minutes from saint john) produces some pretty nice swells on some days, before you go check windinder.com for a detailed wave forcast.

I surf in northern NB around Miscou Island. When you know when and where to go, there's a few wave around!  I have all the spot dialed-up. If you come by email me  at efs2387@umoncton.ca

RE: New Brunswick Surf????

Anyone ever investigate Sand Bay on Whitehead Island for surf? What about Anchorage Provincial Park beach on Grand Manan?

I guess it's old news now. The tidal bore in Moncton, since they opened the causeway, is producing a very good wave to ride on incoming tide. You may even get a 3 Km ride.

The best place I've found so far to get good waves is Mispec beach outside of Saint John. You can get good swell from August to late April or early May. It's best when a low pressure system moves through, but there's also swell with a strong S, W, or SW wind onshore, usually 30 Km/h and high brings in good waves. If the wind is offshore it ruins the waves. I usually use a 9ft longboard, but you can get away with shorter when the waves are decent. The biggest I've ever seen it is chest high but I've only been going there since this past season.

Also if you go at high tide it will just be a shore break, it's better when the tide is further out. The water is pretty cold I would recommend either 4, 5, or 6mm wetsuit for the spring and definitely booties and gloves. The bay tends to be fairly chilly in the spring cause it's still cold from the winter. It's a lot warmer during late summer to early fall, but I'd still recommend a full suit, and probably the thickest ting you can find for the winter months.

This week, would I need winter: 7 mil mitts, 5mil booties, gear to be comfortable in the water?

RE: New Brunswick Surf????

We kayak surf at anything over 10 kntsout here on the west coast. If there are whitecaps out in the straits we go for it..Is kayak surfing frowned upon in NB. I cant seem to get any interest shown by the local yakers.Mispec Beach sounds like a great candidate for my kind of fun. Got a full drysuit cause the waters never get above 15C out here, so waters of 4 C is not a problem.. IM LOOKING FOR LUMPIES.. HELP!!
