Hi Doris, I don't know if you will check this site again, but if you do the gentleman that posted after you had good advice. Talking to the locals is the best way to get a feel for the scene. Don't be discouraged if they vibe you, some people don't like the idea of the water getting crowded. But you will find someone who will tell you where to get a board and a wetsuit, and what winds are needed to generate rideable surf for your local area. All I can tell you is there are lots better forums out there than this one, I would tell you but I don't want this kind of bullsh!t spilling over into serious sites.
Next time you see people at the bridge just go talk to them, most people will answer your questions
Good luck!

Yes I'm interested in joining.  Does anyone know of a good place to surf in TO and would they be interested in making a group event one of these weekends?

Wow...18 months and this thread has gone nowhere.

If there really is a group of surfers who are serious about scrounging some lake waves from time to time when the stars come into alignment on the weather, please feel free to contact me.

I've got about 60 days under my belt in Hawaii, Tofino, Costa Rica, Barbados and Australia, just bought a 7'4" that might be able to catch some float in this lake chop and am curious to see if we can actually have some fun on Lake Ontario this summer.

So who's stepping up to the plate?

there should be some waves coming our way this week. there is a tropical storm making its way north from florida:) who knows what it will bring but anything is better than staring at this computer monitor. that water temp is amazing for this time of year too!!!! ashbridges bay and in front of the water filtration plant (out from vic park) usually have some catchable waves....

I'm extremely interested to surf anywhere in Ontario I surfed in San Diego last year, now I do nothing but watch surf videos on my spair time.

I just recently found out there was surf on the great lakes and am very eager to learn more about the possibilities.

I haven’t grasped how exactly to read the forecast and determine the likelihood of good surf.

Does anyone know how I can find information on prime location, weather and timing for Ontario surfing?

The Lake riders are going to Costa Rica ?   Don't you think its a bit.......... out of your league ?  Try Virginia Beach or maryland first.  Get used to the ocean first then try Costa.  It's almost as if your going to jump from a puddle to Pipe.  Theres a big difference from riding lake chop to Ocean swells.
