Spring

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Spring surfing is almost here! 

Spring is around the corner and the surf season is about to start! So welcome to Surf Montreal, your site for river surfing info, surfing info, Montreal travel help, surf travel help, and more!

For seasoned surfers checking the water levels, welcome back! You will see a few changes on the site.

FRENCH content is coming soon!

Those who know me, know I can speak french without any problems, but writing and maintaining a french section of the site, as much as I tried, failed miserably.  I have found a translator and will provide most of the site in french as well!

Film Festival page!  Check out my film festival.

There are no judges, prizes, submissions or fame to be had, this festival is simply sharing the stoke of surfing and hopefully providing some inspiration to surf. Find it on the film fest tab.

Travel Tools.

I have added the Hotels Combined search box to a few of the travel pages.  This tool will compare your hotel searches with a bunch of other websites and provide you the best rates and room types available.  Simply put: I like, I use it, I’m sharing it.

California.

Florida used to be my surf destination of choice but the  discovery of cheap flights from Burlington to LA, and San Diego have changed that.  Combine great surf, fun people and the fact that every time I go to California I love it… I am proud to show it off and give you the info you want and need to plan a great Californian surf trip.

Enjoy the site, and have a great surf.

 

New Travel Tool

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Hello Surf Montreal!

Found an interesting tool online that I will be adding to my travel related sections of SurfMTL.com.  It’s a travel search box for Hotels Combined.  This site is pretty cool as it compares a few different sites for the same dates and hotels and gives you the prices one on top of each other.  No more browsing 4 windows and comparing sites.  It’s all there.  I like it, I’m going to use it for my travels and I want to share it, so ENJOY!

For example: Want to search for hotels near Trestles? Take a look, it will show you the lowest price and room options, click on ‘Book now’ to see the price comparison, and there you go!



 

California Section

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Hello Surf Montreal!

I have added a California page.  I love California and decided that I would share some insider info with everyone!  It’s being added piece by piece so check back every few days for new parts!  This week: Pacific beach.  A sweet section of San Diego filled with surf, bars, a great surf/ party hostel, and awesome restaurants.  Enjoy!

Winter Surfing!

Friday, January 18th, 2013

It’s minus 26 outside, and I keep reading about people going paddle boarding, surfing with ice, surfing without ice (cause its too frozen to flow down stream!) and I can’t help but think. WOW!!! Crazy people! Well definitely not for everyone and those who are doing it are seasoned pro’s. Be safe anyways!!! I’m going to keep dreaming of Oahu which is going to be 25 feet this weekend! Find a surfing feed that is clear and enjoy!

Quicksilver Surfing Video

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Pretty awesome short by Quicksilver.  I must admit I posted it from my semi random surfing clip of the day search but now I have to re-post it on the front page.  It’s that good.  Enjoy it!

 

Video of the day!

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

New page- Video of the day.  Check it out on the daily clip page for a new surf clip every day!  Today’s is a 20 minute surf flick by Quicksilver.  Enjoy!

Francais en route!

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Surf Montreal is working to re-add our French content! This time, we will keep it as updated as the English posts are updated and although this is a bit of a challenge it’s something I want to do! We used to be 75% bilingual back in the day but I got a fair amount of negative feedback regarding my French writing and the fact that some posts were not translated fast enough. As I do this for fun and to benefit the local community, I decided to take the french down and focus on English content.  Well 4 years later, I’m going to give it another go! It’s under construction but will be up and running shortly!

In the meantime enjoy this bloopers clip!

ARSA SURF ANYWHERE PROJECT

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

The Alberta River Surfing Association has taken on a new project to build a river wave that may very well revolutionize river surfing world wide.  Previous dreams of making a river wave have been stopped in the planning stages due to so many obstacles such as environmental concerns, $, fear ect… They have government support, a team of engineers, a tonne of energy and enthusiasm for the project and one really cool bonus feature… A river that gets ‘turned off’ at night making construction that much easier.

Take a look at their project page and follow them on their quest to build a river wave at http://surfanywhere.riversurfing.ca/
