It has been just over two months since my last post, which means it has been just over two months without going surfing. Brutal. The summer months are not favourable for surfing on the Great Lakes due to the warm air temperatures and lack of strong winds. But if a storm system is passing through there is the chance that waves will grow and might even have enough power to be surfed. I noticed on the SurfRadar.info that there was a possibility of 3-4 foot waves at Sandbanks due to SW 20-25 km/h , so I wiped the dust of my gear and heading east. My fiancé lives in Picton, which is only 15 minutes from the beach, which means I can check out the waves quite easily. I headed over to the break at Richardson Beach around 1 PM but they were just little bumps, but I had a good feeling about today. Making the trip back around 4 PM, I could see the waves were building and were almost getting good enough to ride. But I knew the high point was going to be after 6 PM, so I went back to the house to play videogames. Dana (my fiancé) finished work at 6 and we quickly jumped in the wagon with the dogs and made our way to the beach. When we arrived I saw two local surfers (Dan & Dustin) in the water and got really stoked. Finally, I get to surf after two months AND get to use my new board which Dana had given me for my birthday back in May! The waves were averaging 3 feet but there were a few 4 footers as well. I caught a ton of waves and scored my longest ride yet, all the way to the beach! Hopefully there will be more waves as the summer turns into fall.
