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.
