Ride the Wave

Any surfer will tell you, timing is everything, and nowhere is that more evident than the surf on the Great Lakes. With more than 17,000 kilometres of coastline, Kincardine is a spot with the perfect combination of underwater terrain and wind currents to create those clean peeling waves. But swells here are fickle; they can come up fast and sometimes they will be gone in as little as three hours. Other times a swell can last all day, giving surfers unlimited action.
