Winter Surfing

On cold winter mornings, most Canadians are snuggled up in bed. But in Nova Scotia, some self-described crazies are throwing themselves into the Atlantic.

It was way back in the 1960's when locals on Lawrencetown Beach started noticing some free spirits diving into the ocean with surfboards.

Now the Eastern Shore is quickly growing an international reputation as one of the best cold water destinations in the world. Not only are more folks surfing here, they're moving here to do it.
