Toronto Turns On

Apr 2, 2012

Author: SBC Surf

When you stand on the Toronto shoreline and look out at Lake Ontario, you can almost imagine it's the ocean. It's even easier to believe when the wind pushes in a decent windswell, as it did this weekend for The Freshest Wave, a surf gathering and expression session presented by Surf Ontario.

Here's a recap of the event from Surf Ontario's Mike Sandusky:

"We created the Freshest Wave to bring surfers together, raise the level of surfing on the lakes and most importantly, to have fun. We used an expression session style for the contest so the emphasis would be on fun and there would be no pressure.
 
With award categories such as Drop In Champ, Best Sweeper, and Biggest Wave, how could it not be fun?  Surfers traveled from as far as Rochester in New York, Crystal Beach on Lake Erie, and Kincardine on Lake Huron for the morning event.
 
Eight award categories were created to judge the surfers and we held out for surf at our local Toronto spot. Finally we got a good enough day to run the Freshest Wave. Surf Ontario would like to thank all the surfers, photographers, spectators, media, suppliers, sponsors, and volunteers for their support, energy and a day to remember."
