RE: Surfing Ontario

jer. DON'T DO IT. getting a shortboard when u've never surfed "real waves" is stupid. just plain stupid. especially on the lakes. come on, man, do ur research. shortboards are fine for being towed behind a dam boat but out on the water, u'll never learn on a shortboard. not in the lake. go 7'5+ AT LEAST. u'll thank me later when u actually get up and ride a wave.

all u newbies should do some reading before getting all whacked. do ur own work. find ur own breaks. jeez, ull never be surfers if u just get every1 else to do it 4 u!

GET THE BOOK SURFING THE GREAT LAKES. ok? it'll tell u all u want to know bout when and where to catch good waves. then u can stop askin such stupid questions.

RE: Surfing Ontario

seriously jer dude. ask any lakesurfer and theyll tell ya the same for a beginner. itll just b a waist of $$ and ull get frustrated way quiker w/ a shortboard. if ur worried bout it bein 2 big stay in the 7'7 to 8'5 range. there not 2 bulky and fun to use even if u get good on it. ud b surprised how easy it really is to paddle a big board. ud think it would take more effort but it takes less cuz it catches waves better. 8' wuld b really good 4 u i think.

u shuld go out 1 day an ask some dudes nicely to try out their sticks or sumthin. they might b feelin generous that day.

RE: Surfing Ontario

"Theres this one spot that only Breaks in the Dead of winter"
The wave breaks in the dead of winter?  Onto what? twenty yards of ice lining the shoreline?  You must be kidding, in the dead of winter, that lake is frozen solid.  Have fun surfing them icebergs!

RE: Surfing Ontario

That bites Tom( living so far inland) not to rub it in or nothing but I can see that Atlantic ocean from my house.  It gets really cold here in the winter too but we have a pretty consistent fall and winter.  I have kelly slaters pro surfer for ps2 too.  Transworld surf is much better if you canm find it in youre area.  Im going to buy a brand new 6'10 swallow tail thruster tomorrow. I CANT F@#KING WAIT!!!!!
