Yes, the two words do belong together - at least for some people. The last couple years I have not been out surfing, but I plan to change that. Canada is one of the those places I would like to visit for a surf trip - in the Fall or maybe even the Winter.
Just remember, a good winter suit, and a thermos with warm water to start. A nearby pub with a fire would be a great addition as well.
So, consider some surf fun in Canada. Canada is making the pages of surf mags these days, and you can find cheap flights to Montreal.
It's on my list of a thousand things to do before I die. Wanna join me?
