The mecca for surfin on the east cost.

From early spring to late autumn the water temperature ranges between 8 to 16 degrees celcius and the waves generally range between 1 and 12 feet high depending on whether you are surfing off of a point or beachbreak.
he average swell ranges between 2 to 4 feet high.
Most of the local surfers wear either a 4/3mm or a 3/2mm wetsuit depending on the water temperature and depending on the time of year.
Boots and gloves are recommended! For you hardcore surfers out there the winter season can be pretty big and really cold. For winter we recommend wearing a thicker wetsuit such as a 5/4/3mm or even a 6/5/4mm with a hood. There`s nothing like a perpetual ice cream headache when you`re trying to catch waves!
In Nova Scotia the majority of points are rocky so it is recommended again to wear good boots so your feet won`t get cut!
f you plan on surfing in Nova Scotia we suggest you bring a couple of boards with you out of your quiver, a normal shortboard around 6'6" and a longer board around 7'6" should do the trick.
For more detailed information visit the East Coast Surf Information Center. This site offers plenty of information such as weather patterns, wave forecasting, tides, and much more!
Drop by the local surf shop Happy Dudes down the road, about 10 min drive.

Additional Info:
L-Town is descent break with cold water. Waves will breaks at the point and at the beach anywhere between 1.0 m+. The place is magnet for waves and can be head high or over at 1.4 m with a good period because of the bottom contours.The right is slow and short on most days but can get exceptionally long. The left can barrel. Water gets warm in summer similar to NJ -2C and about the same in winter. If you're looking for a remote getaway or some Canadian/Scottish culture this would be ideal. Halifax is great city. Otherwise, there are more consistent breaks elsewhere.If the waves are weak check out Martinique 25 min down the road its cleaner there on shoppy days.


Its a 20 min drive from Halifax, then a 5 min paddle from the beach.
