RE: Surfing Ontario

Hey, I'm just starting out and I need some mentoring.  I live near Hamilton and need info on where to go, when etc.. Also, I got a 6'6" shortboard, and I'm wondering if I made a mistake.  Perhaps I should have gotten a longboard instead.  Oh well, if anyone who is into great lake surfing would write me, I would really appreciate it.  Thanks, Morgan

RE: Surfing Ontario

Yeah, you definitely made a mistake, hate to break it to ya. I started with a 6'6 too and barely made any progress beyond paddling. You really should have started out with a larger board.

It's going to take you FOREVER to even get standing up on these lake waves with a 6'6, especially during the summer. I would either sell your board and get a bigger one, or hang onto it for later and pick up a bigger board in the meantime.

Depending on your height/weight, you should try starting out with anywhere from 7'6 to 9'. Lake waves are not as buoyant as ocean waves and most of the time lack the power as well. Longboards, or at least funboards, are pretty much an essential if youre a newb.

RE: Surfing Ontario

sell the 6'6" its too small for lake waves.  Stick with a long board youll have more fun!

RE: Surfing Ontario

Hey.  Thanks alot for replying.  The board
I have is a 6'6" dragonfly shortboard (18 7/8" X 2 3/4").  It has a bit of a squared back (about eight inches), three fins.  I don't know what else to say about it.  I really am a newb.  Anyway, I'll try to send a picture if you're intersted, otherwise, if you want to sell your  7'6", I'd like to hear more about it (and perhaps a price).  If I can't get rid of this thing then I'll just hold onto it for bigger waves and the ocean.  Thanks again.  Morgan

P.S. I'd still like any info one when and where to get some waves.

RE: Surfing Ontario

hey man,
The board is actually my g/f's... she wasnt sure whether to sell it or not, but would sell for 500.  its 7'6" NSP (new surf project) and real thick and floaty.  really good condition with only a little paint peel on the rails.

wondering how old your board is and where u got it, shaper ect.
it should have dimentions on the bottom near the fins.
