Tere is still ice along the shore and you can see the ice floating about a 1km infront of Kincardine. If we get a north wind it's all going to blow back in again.

Might be another week before any one can ride in Kincardine.

Just trying to save you the drive. I'll post something once the ice goes away.

I might go in tomorrow. Depends if I'm done the carbon rails on my shortboard. I'm watching the webcams though and it looks beautiful. I hope the water level rise is significant, I really wanna see water that will do to a couple surf spots. The grand bend pier needed another foot of water anyway. I'm so pumped. This winter was brutal and I've been waiting for that damned ice to melt, feels like forever.

I just got off the phone with someone from the municipality of kincardine and Apparently there's going to be a meeting tomorrow night at 6 at the Davidson centre regarding the Blue Flag beach at station beach. The conflict is basically to have a blue flag beach they want everything from the south pier roped off and we would not be able to surf, kite, paddle board, boat or jetski on the south side of the pier which we all know is the best spot to go! The call was a heads up to get as many people out to the meeting to basically say after all the presentations are done that blue flag beach is not the direction that we and kincardine want to go. The good thing is that Kincardine tourism is behind the wants of us(surfers, kiteboarding etc.) but they need more voices to have a leg to stand on after they open it up to the floor that a blue flag beach might be for other municipalities but it isn't for kincardine so we can still enjoy the south of the pier!! so spread the word to anyone you know that enjoys these waters in kincardine like us. The meeting is at the Davidson centre tomorrow night at 6pm! Try and make an effort to get out to this meeting so they know that we don't want to lose this spot just to have a blue flag disignated beach!!

No black gunk. I thing the waves were hitting a sandbar because they would break and then just pound straight down. No power to keep them rolling. I was at grandbend earlier in the day and same thing there.

I assumed from wind direction it would be good at Ipperwash, but I haven't actually surfed there yet. Was there still lots of that black gunk floating on the shore line? I had my doubts about Port Franks, but ended up really impressed with the waves there. Some windsurfer couldn't get past the break so he just ended up watching us surf.

I was at ipperwash, they were short and bushy. Still got a few rides in :) maybe I was at the wrong spot...
Comment by Byron Sullivan on September 8, 2013 at 8:29pm

It was pounding Port Franks all day. They were peeling right with the odd nice left. Surfed for 5 hours. And Port Franks shallow beach made long waves that pushed real hard. NE winds were great, Ipperwash woulda been even better.

Buttery flat.

There is an off shore breeze.
