RE: Surfing Ontario

surf was up yesterday! I missed it...hey I'm rob, just found this forum. I've been surfing just over 2 years now mostly on the outer banks, florida, and one trip to Costa Rica (awesome) Anyway I went to the beaches for some Vball yesterday and there was rideable waves for sure...It wasn't even windy and the water temp was good.  Anyone know of any other surf or weather sites for some predictions in the GTA

If anyone's hitting the lake let me know

I recommend if you're looking for a used board make the journey out of Ontario, hit the outer banks or even Virginia Beach you'll be glad you did. I bought my board from "Natural Art"  in Buxton obx for $100 bucks. It's a bit of a pig but a great learner board.

RE: Surfing Ontario

Hey Everyone. This forum is awesome. I live in Oshawa and will hopefully be buying my first surf board by the end of this year. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion about which surfboard companies make the best quality boards. I will be doing some Great Lake Surfing and Some Ocean. Thanks in advance.

RE: Surfing Ontario

I have been surfin TO for 10 years now and Ive never seen anybody else other than myself and my 2 surfer bros.  We know almost every spot.  TO waves are wind generated.  You have to know which lake catches what direction of wind and what wind speed to develop swells that are large enough to ride(this is probably why we dont see anyone else).  I surfed Lake ontario at the toronto beaches boardwalk during hurricane Fran and caught solid peeling overhead 8 footers, wind surfers were drowning in the heavy surf and ambulances lined the beach for them.  I have enjoyed surfing here in TO inwhich I thought there was absolutely nothing. However u must pay alot of attention to weather channels/stations and be ready to skip work etc to catch them. If u want more info reply to this email.
