Just read your post
My daugther is 14 and we are taking her to Florida the end of june for two weeks to a surf camp.
We are from Bayfield area.
There are some guys that surf together Bayfield and GrandBend that are friends of my nieces they want to take her out and help her. I will let you know who this group is when I find out if your interested....or you can maybe take out my daughter and surf around here sometime if that interests you. I am willing to pay for someone to spend some time with her when we get back...
Let me know

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

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.

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