Atmosphere

From early spring to late autumn the water temperature ranges between 8 to 16 degrees celcius and the waves generally range between 1 and 12 feet high depending on whether you are surfing off of a point or beachbreak.
he average swell ranges between 2 to 4 feet high.
Most of the local surfers wear either a 4/3mm or a 3/2mm wetsuit depending on the water temperature and depending on the time of year.
Boots and gloves are recommended! For you hardcore surfers out there the winter season can be pretty big and really cold. For winter we recommend wearing a thicker wetsuit such as a 5/4/3mm or even a 6/5/4mm with a hood. There`s nothing like a perpetual ice cream headache when you`re trying to catch waves!
In Nova Scotia the majority of points are rocky so it is recommended again to wear good boots so your feet won`t get cut!
f you plan on surfing in Nova Scotia we suggest you bring a couple of boards with you out of your quiver, a normal shortboard around 6'6" and a longer board around 7'6" should do the trick.
For more detailed information visit the East Coast Surf Information Center. This site offers plenty of information such as weather patterns, wave forecasting, tides, and much more!
Drop by the local surf shop Happy Dudes down the road, about 10 min drive.

- I have lived in Nova Scotia my whole life and have YET to hear of a great white attack.

And an 80 foot long one bit off your arm and foot? ARE YOU MENTAL? LMAO!!!!!! Such bull. The one on 'Jaws' was only 25 feet!!! At least try to make it believeable!

h-dudes, avoid - happy dudes does not deserve any positive press. As a frequent attempted customer there it didn't take me long to figure out that there are much better surfshops in the area staffed by actual surfers..

Response to Happy Dudes comment - I find what you said about Happy Dudes surprising. I've been heading down there for a few yrs now and Keith and the guys at HD have been nothing but great every time I've stopped in (even the 1st time I met him). He's lended me fins, hooked me up with great deals, told me about other spots to check out. I don't know if you caught him on a real bad day or what, but he's been nothing but cool to me.
