East Coast Mecca???? - On the bottom of the Ltown spot message, it calls Lawrencetown "the mecca of surfing on the east coast" Ha! I would have to disagree there. Cold water, inconsistent swells, crappy disorganized waves at best, a period that rarely breaks NOAAs wind swell (11-13s) classification and no powerful groundswell (NOAA 15+sec) ever! I dunno about you, I see no mecca....barely better than lakesurf...
Fuck Longboarders? - I just read another post bashing longboarders. I don't get why anybody would care if I or anyone else chooses to ride a longboard when it is too small to surf a shortboard. The fact of the matter is that owning and surfing a longboard will almost double the number of days you can surf around here. During the long, flat summer that is upon us, there will be all kinds of days that will simply be unsurfable on a shortboard. Shit talk all you want, but while you are on the beach cursing those .5 meter, 8 second period, offshore days, I'll be at the beach surfing. I'll grant you that longboarders with no etiquette can be a pain in the ass to have in the line-up, but so can shortboarders with the same problem. It depends on the person, not the board. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, people who ride boogy-boards should not make fun of people who ride longboards.
Nice out there yesterday. - Not quite an epic swell, but it sure was nice to get a few decent waves this time of year. The beachbreak's looking a lot better than it has all winter too. Hope everyone had a good time.
Places for begginers to go - Here are some places where beginners can go and not worry about getting hassled.1) Lawrencetown - pick a peak anywhere up or down the peak and you should have lots of room. Also the point, unless its really firing then it would be best to surf the beach break.2) Martinique - Anywhere along the beach. Way too much room here.Those are two beginner friendly spots in the Halifax area. Feel free to add to the list.

just learning - i just took some surf lessons over the weekend and i have to say it was one of the best experiences i have had in the water................alomst, but a very close second. even though the conditions weren't that good for learning and all i ended up doing was riding the break most of the time but it was still awesome. i was just woundering where a good place to go for learners to go, and not get in any ones way. im also looking to buy a good used 9' begginer board and a 6/5 wet suit.if any one could help please just let me know.

Lose The Attitude - Man y'all gotta lose the attitude. For such a small population of surfers I have never seen such a crazy amoint of localism, or cyber localism if you will, going on. Nobody's gonna take a surf trip to a place where ya gotta where a wetsuit unless it's South Africa or somwhere in South America like Chile or Peru. So don't worry. The best waves in Nova Scotia have yet to be found anyway, if y'all weren't such lazy bastards and summertime kooks ya would be finding these waves by now. I know where they are. So get of your asses and quit crying about a place being full of kooks. It's Lawrencetown for fucks sake, it's not a sick break. If you can rip kooks will recognize, if not, run over them. end of story. Aloha
:-( - Enough of this site. Ciao!
:-) - Personally I think summer crowds are unavoidable as long as they are catered to by rental shops such as Happy Dudes! Don't get me wrong, I am not trashing Happy Dudes, they are great people. Never rented before but they let me change in their van once when I didn't have a ride to do it in! Summer crowds really don't bother me, they tend to tire out quickly and never are in the way for long. Most are gone before hurricane season and that is when we all really want the waves anyways!

the truth has finally been spoken - finnally this site has been graced with some truthhey ithrowbuckets i have to say you nailed it right on the head with your last post. i'm not johhny air cracker by any means but i can hold my own and i know the rules and how things work and when i was learning i found the best way was to stay off to the side and watch not get in the way of other people and catch what i can. anyways people its only gonna get more crowded as time goes on so just enjoy it and get rad while you can peace
