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.
