Due to the inclement weather and the inconsistent conditions, etc. G.L. surfers are simply more grateful and thus less egotistical. We are who we are, and we are just more used to being labeled as outcasts rather than "mainstream." It doesn't matter the size of the wave it matters if you are having fun.

Hey Great to hear about Rhohendron Park
Is it good year round or just spring and fall?

Nicole, you're sending people in the wrong direction! It's not anywhere even close to St. Clair. It's just north of DAVISVILLE, on Yonge. In fact, it's only about a 10 minute walk (at most) south from EGLINTON. (I usually skate it so I'm not sure about walking time).
If you go to St. Clair, you're going to be walking for a LONG time.
And Janice, there isn't anywhere to rent boards in TO. Unless you sign up for a surf lesson with the GTA school. You can also buy boards at Silent Sports and apparently Amuck, but I've yet to go to Amuck when it actually has anything surf-related at all. Bunch of shoes and hoodies... But that was a while ago. I was so bummed out, I never went back. There are shapers in Wasaga and stuff too.

You mentioned the GTA Surf School...I tried to Google them, but I couldn't find anything. Also, their web site I got out of a magazine (durbanad.com/surfschool) didn't work. I have never surfed before but am dying to learn. Any suggestions on how to get a hold of them? Thanks for your help! :)

The site still works for me, but you're right, it no longer pops up on Google for some reason. Rob D is the one who runs it but I don't know how to contact him directly. I'd give another try to the site. Maybe it was just some temporary downtime? If not, he may be around the ESA great lakes forum or the Third Coast one. I'm not sure. Those seem to be other places lakesurfers hang out. Good luck! :)
