Whats the deal with all this localism in Newfoundland? Being a newfie born and living in Montreal (however my family raised me newfoundland style, and its soo good to get back to the rock as often as possible) and my family is from newfoundland, with history back to the early settlers, Im appaled to be hearing about all this tire slashing and window smashing? That certainly doesnt sound like the newfoundland Ive come to love. What happend to the hospitality? Shouldnt we be trying to atleast share the sorta quality breaks for the newbies and then let them earn the good breaks? Relax and maybe you guys will meet some decent people. I know I have met amazing friends by iviting them for session on the stlaurence.

In reality there is as much localism here in NL as there is palm trees. I live and surf here. There are couple of idiots who have watched one too many Hollywood surf movies on this message board and are acting like fools. I will not volunteer any of our surf spots, but I will treat a stranger whom I meet in the water with respect if respect is given. Everyone who I have met in the water does the same.

Man, what a pile of crap... never usually get involved in these things, but couldn't stand to see my beloved motherland get trashed by people who claim to be locals, yet totally misrepresent this place. To set the record straight, YES, of course there is surf here in Newf... given the amount of exposed coastline we have, it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. Sometimes, but by no means all the time, there can even be some pretty epic swell here. [continued in next thread]

Despite the way this thread depicts the scene here, the local surfers are all pretty laid back people, and generally open to any new comer who is respectful and follows proper etiquette in the water. All the same, I do doubt that any local will tell you exactly where the spots are, especially on this website, so if you are REALLY, HONESTLY interested in surfing here, you have to make it happen yourself; go explore, that's half the fun. However, I will say this: NONE of the spots are close to each other or St. Johns, so you best bring lots of coffee, CD's and dollar bills for gas, cause you are going to do some serious driving. There are NO gear or rental shops on the island, nor is there a need for any, so please don't get any ideas. [continued on next thread]

As Newfoundlanders we've been blessed with a beautiful coastline, great surf, and an empty ocean, however it is critical that we protect this precious resource. For this reason, PLEASE DO NOT MENTION PLACE NAMES ON THIS OR ANY SITE AND FOR GOD SAKE, NO PICTURES. The internet can be a dangerous tool, and it doesn't take long for your (and our) favorite local break to become overcrowded so PLEASE watch what you post on sites like this. Anyway, hope this provides a little insight to the surf scene here.... see you in the water.
