Hey South Aussie, where do ya live now? I'm a South Aussie in Kingston ON & dying for a wave and some clues. Anyone out there got any tips? Promise I'll be careful - I can surf and I'll be good and respectful - pay my dues 'n all that. Wouldn't wanna get in the way of all this "localism" going on out there.
By the way, I agree newcomers have to do some time & show respect. I've surfed around Oz and a few other countries and always do, that's why I've NEVER had a hassle. Just remember, we were all beginners once and we're all newcomers when we dare to venture beyond our own "comfort zone" breaks.

im looking forward to checking more about nova scotia surf potential. I will be attending Dalhousie to finish up a second degree for a year. As far as this localism (in nova scotia of all places) goes ill let my surfing speak for itself. i have been living in taiwan actually for three years teaching english. if anyone has seen the Feb 2006 issue of Surfing mag, youll see a fab spread on the great quality of surf this country gets. Especially during typhoon season. anyone interested in making good money while being an hour from good surf should def check this out. The good paying job and close proximity to southeast asia, including bali, the rest of indo, japan, guam, phillipines and cheap flights, i can go on and on.

Well, as a local to the eastern shore of ns and a dal student, I was very offended with the localism. So for who ever is thinking about going to lawerancetown beach (since it's the closest to halifax), it's a great beach, good surf, and we locals are pretty friendly, but obvoiusly just have a couple jerks with their heads up their asses :) avoiding them, i think anyone would feel welcome.

Is it legal to cover up your license plate with crate paper in Nova Scotia? I'm coming out next fall to accompany my girlfriend (she's in at Dal) and I'm a relatively seasoned surfer (by the way, Cape Hatteras rips!). Actually, I recently went surfing at Grand Bend on Lake Huron and I was busting through ice chunks the whole time. If you want a gnarly scene, check out Great Lakes surfing. But watch the locals - most of them have fishing rods and huge beards and they get pissed when you tangle up their lines. Agro!
I hope I won't be typecast because of my Ontario heritage. I plan to ease into the scene with a respectful whisper.
Would a 6-5-4 suit do the trick for most of the year?

i use a 654 through the winter by the middle of april you could switch to a 43 then july to a 32 other than that the only thing you will need to bring is a little respect. one thing to definately leave home is ignorance, youll be fine

Thanks man. That's good advice. I'm really looking forward to seeing the ocean again.
