Hey, I live in Portugal Cove South, it's on the southern Avalon on the Southern Shore. I don't surf but I've always wanted to learn and whenever surfers visit the area I make a point of jumping in my car and checking out what they're up to. I work in the tourist information centre in my community and always wish surfers would stop in to talk but they usually just continue on by, a lot go to Biscay Bay which is like 30 seconds from P.C.S, that would be the most visited spot I've seen people surfing here, though some have braved other areas I'd say looked kinda sketchy, but anyways I just found this site and thought it was cool, so if any surfers are in my area drop in to the T.I.C and hopefully I'll be there to have a chat and if you stick around maybe have a few beers.

Maybe you could give us an email address so we could tell you that we are coming to P.C.S, Oh that kinda limits things doesn't it.

If your a traveller respect the locals. If your a local then one day you might be a traveller too so think about that. It's as simple as that Respect = Respect

Was up there two years (Sept. 04) ago for a weekend trip. Surfed solo on a chest high swell behind a B&B around Cappahayden. Just to the south was breaking better, but appeared rocky and had no interest in going out alone, although now I kind of regret it. Only other souls out were a couple of seals, but based on talking to a few locals they said people have surfed there. People were really friendly in and around St. John/Avalon Peninsula. Will definitely come back to explore sometime. Just reply if you want me to email some photos I shot of some spots. Would upload it but I don't see a way of doing that on this forum.

so ryan white from new jersey, tell us why you enjoy posting on the subject of newfoundland so much, seems to me you like to expose places. after you trip to nfld you posted 2 posts on separate forum and then today you do the exact samething. i do't think i would trust this guy if he came to my area. seems he is just a selfless promoter

You're right....I am a selfless promoter of surf exploration. Don't plan on revealing every spot I found. I think people should explore themselves. I was just stoked to surf up there.
Come on down to Jersey Multigrade and I'll show you all the top spots. What's wrong with pointing a local beginner to a spot I surfed up there? Selfless promoter.....call it what you want? Score any good sessions up there as of late?
