 Access

Look for Point Michaud Provincial Park in L'Ardoise, Richmond County, Cape Breton. Very easily found if you have a map of the area. The beach is right off the road, can't miss it.

Wanted: Board for rent or purchase - Will be back on Cape Breton Island this summer and looking for a board to rent or purchase. Met someone at Point Michaud last summer who said there was a surf shop in Sydney, but I've been unable to locate it. Suggestions?

beginner - Beginning this summer after having waited many years to try. Would be nice to find others to surf with on weekends or in the summer. Looks like the ideal place to start out. Location is great as I live in Port Hawkesvbury.
