Boardsports is on Yonge st. between Davisville and Eglinton. Small selection right now but worth a look.
Silent Sports also sells boards. They're in Richmond Hill.
There are a few places in the Wasaga-ish area that make custom boards.

if u want a surfboard there are two places in the GTA Silent Sports ( Younge & Steels) go north on Young and make a right on Docaster Rd it a little was downhill about 5 minutes. another place is Boradsports it's at (Younge & Davisville) get off davisville station and walk Nothr on Younge it about 2 minutes walk and ur there. Just to let u know that surfboards are expensive in canada the best thing to do is get one from the States by ckecking the surf sites it much cheaper too OR get it from Ebay u will find sum new ones too and if ur lucky like me u might hit the jack pot. firstname.lastname@example.org

yeah I went to Boardsports, they had 3 boards - all around $1100 or so... ridiculously expensive!! You're right I think I can probably get away with spending about $500 on ebay including shipping.
One thing I'm still trying to figure out: do you need a different type of board to surf freshwater or will any board do?
RE: Surfing Ontario« Reply #5 on: August 01 2005 08:08:00 »
any board will do but a board with a rounder nose will help catch smaller waves u might want to consider that

hey guys, this is probably the best forum ive found yet on fresh water surfing. Last weekend i went up to wasaga beach, the forcast was low waves (1 footers), but with offshore winds... so i figured there might be some luck in the winds generating swells.
boy oh boy, was i in luck... the swells generated waves about 1 - 2 meters in height. But since the winds came in off the lake, they broke the waves easy and created alot of turbulent sloppy waves. Im sure if i looked around the coast a bit more i would of been able to find a spot sheltered by wind.
still learning how to forcast when good waves will arise. if anyone at all is interested in joining me... id love a surfing buddy.

wondering if anyone's been out around the skyway bridge area; burlington/ hamilton. does it need big wind to be worth it? trying to decide whether to truck my board along with me when i head that way this week and heard it can actually be consistent? thanks guys. and sabrina; i'm in T.O, drop me an email when you wanna give it a go

Jacob - that's great to hear you lucked out with some decent sized, albeit sloppy, waves up at wasag beach. Especially given the poor forecast. I guess you've heard of Alona Bay, which I believe is further south of Wasaga? I have had a hard time tracking down its exact whereabouts...but I believe that it's near the mouth of Montreal River.
