Mate ,the lakes are coming into their swell season.Checkout lakesurf.com there are forums so you can talk to all the great lake surfers. I surfed the lakes for 12 months and the waves are pretty sick. i meet all the great lake surfers at the dairyland comp in sheboygan Wisconsin. If you need contacts I could maybe help you out. But login to the website. Good luck lakedog.

hey guys, i'm no expert at the lake surfing but I have surfed ashbridges bay near the volley ball courts a couple times. it seems to get real big if the wind howls for 24 hours from the SE. so it would be blowing to the NW. the biggest was around 6 foot, over head at least, and barreling. they were short rides but i didn't have to paddle more than 2 or 3 strokes.
I'm hoping today will pick up with this crap from Ernesto blowin through.
Also, I have had many chats with the lifeguards here in T.O. and the water is safe for most everybody to swim. the restrictions and closures are based on the lowest common denominator. meaning if it is possible for one person to be sick, they'll post signs to stop swimming.
can someone tell me where the hot spot will be today or tomorrow?

k, a-bay is 1 thing. u've obv never fallen in the water in oakville. or hamilton. west u know. don't tell me it's safe for every1 when theres tampons and actual sh*t floatin in the water. u can have fun in sewage and have fun wit ur moowich after. u don't go in lake o on really hot summer dayz unless ur got a good healthcare setup.

hey cindy, if she already knows how to surf, like u know catchin and riding waves, it ain't bout that then (which is what lessons'll getcha. the basics) pick up "surfing the great lakes". surfin lakes is about knowing when to go out most importantly and what wind/waves'll be best. u wont learn that ina lesson. u gotta learn bout the lakes and winds and shite like that. where to go in the area. that stuffs online and in the book. if she can surf already then she just gotta get out there when its workin. read this site. its got lots of spots to check.
or move to NS yeah. sweet.
