Burlington’s waterfront is a beautiful place for a stroll or a bikeride, gazing out at the sail boats dotting the bay and every once in a while you will spot a surfer or two.  Yes, surfing in Burlington is a reality!  In the words of an avid B’town surfer….. 

” We generally get into the water near the lift bridge and we do get waves with many of the storms that pass through. Surfing is an excellent workout. Also  if the wind is out of the west one can windsurf on Hamilton Harbor. Oh…and there are no sharks in Lake Ontario! haha… only carp.” (Thanks JG)
