park and enjoy.... no one surfs in NB, I wouldnt make the trip here unless you are already fairly close to the spot.... Ive checked it everyday for a month, and it has only worked once, albeit shitty. There is alot of clay that gets churned up, so the water is basically brown, cant even see your board 6 inches under the water
Not a good surf spot at all.... weak short waves

- photo 1 proves that this place has potential, look at the outside wave and add a couple of feet to that on a monster swell, could be fun without a doubt.

whatever buddy - this was not a hurricane swell..... gets much much bigger during a hurricane.... this is just an average swell for the month of october.... just actually returned home from BC, and its all i have to work with.... id say it would be at least as big as the pics 20 times from oct- march... so there you have it tough guy

Ok..seriously - This spot and that other spot in NB should be removed from this listing. Just because there are waves once per year (during a hurricane) does not mean you should tell people to consider surfing in NB...there are not waves...it is simply an issue of location and oceanography/geography. Go to NS or BC (possibly Newfoundland)if you want to surf in Canada.
