Great-lakes surfing? Yes it's true. You must check the surf forecast, webcams, or word of mouth as surf conditions vary according to the weather.
Conditions are not as consistant, with wind playing a major factor in the creation of the swell. In cities all over Canada when the winds pick up the surfers head out and lineups can get packed.
Lake surfing has become very popular among surfers who live were the ocean is not within a woody ride.
Lake surfing is inconsistant but allows the surfer valuable time in the water when the ocean is a day or more away. Surfing the lakes will give the same feeling as surfing in the ocean it's just rare that the conditions are ideal. Any time in the water will be good when you do get to the ocean.
