Toronto is home to some diehard fall/winter surfers, who take advantage of the bigger surf tossed up by storms tracking across the East Coast. Lakesurfing in the fall and winter has its barriers to entry, one of which is the cold water, but with the proper wetsuits it's quite comfortable.

Surfing and kitesurfing in and around Toronto is more popular than you might think. In fact, it's easier than ever to achieve the surfer lifestyle close to home. Where to surf in Toronto is a question that's being asked more often of late. Ashbridges Bay in the Beach is a popular spot year round for surfers and kitesurfers. Bluffers Park in the Cliffcrest area of Scarborough also boasts a high rolling surf that is longer and higher than most other spots in and around the GTA. In the summer Hanlan's Point Beach is very popular for the kitesurfing clubs, and a great place to learn.

Great Lake surfing and stand up paddling (SUP) has exploded in the past few years and people of all ages and experience are getting out and enjoying the water more each and every year.
