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.

This is probably one of the best places to ever learn to surf. Sandy bottom, easy paddles, and harmless waves.
Like anyspot in Cape Breton you'll never find any other surfers in the line up. This is a very well known spot by everyone so, anyone is welcome here.

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?
