Well, we watched the weather bouy for Lake Ontario and this past weekend caught the tail end of Hurricane Ernesto moving into Southern Ontario. Liz Burnside, Eric Oggard and I decided to take advantage of the wind and get out and some surfing.
The wave height was a consistent 5 feet with larger waves at 7 feet. No, it wasnâ€™t one of those "the fish was this big" type wave height measurements. We have been practicing Nick Schadeâ€™s article here on how to accurately determine wave height .
It was big water and we got trashed several times. Quite fun. One time I was going to roll up but thought, "I will just wait until the shaking stops before attempting."
We posted a bunch of photos on our photo gallery here.
