does st johns have any decent breaks, or are they all far outside of the city?
RE: Newfoundland« Reply #1 on: October 10 2007 07:10:00 »
From what i have been able to find there isn't anything in the St. John's but there are spots around the Avalon.

how long of a drive is that?
RE: Newfoundland« Reply #3 on: October 11 2007 13:10:00 »
Yes that is alot of driving, so don't go.
RE: Newfoundland« Reply #4 on: October 12 2007 06:10:00 »
Some spots up by Carbonear, probably 1.5 to 2 hrs drive. Some spots south of St. John's probably 45 min to an hour or so.

If you don't want to deal with the tick accent or salted cod, head east to Sable Island( where Titantic survivors lived); it's a deep water sand isle- sediment from Labrador and Gulf Stream currents( up to 70in summer). The left and right are comparable to Bali's Sand Point, but no help, so better to just imagine-mainland Newfy girls are hairy!

does middle cove get any swell
RE: Newfoundland« Reply #8 on: November 06 2007 09:11:00 »
I think I heard somewhere that middle cove can fire but there is a crazy undertow.
RE: Newfoundland« Reply #9 on: November 06 2007 10:11:00 »
There is NO such thing as an 'undertow'- there are 'rips' (currents that carry potential energy back out into the ocean, or, if you watch 'Endless Summer 1', the Tahitian wave 'in and outs' that carried equal wave energy because of steep beach backwash, ala 'Makaha, Santa Catarina, Wedge, etc. Middle Cove doesn't break because of deep water, but south Grand Bank can grind like El Cap!
