When it comes to waves, Canada’s east coast is a fickle place. There are a million nooks and crannies to search, most of which will end in skunkings. But when the direction is right and so is the timing, the size of the score can be huge. Such was the case when Andrew Mooney, noted Australian slab hunter, decided to take a trip there.
“When there’s boards to ride and no waves at home, you do what every surfer does: pick a foreign destination and just go search for waves,” he said. “And enjoy anything else you encounter along the way.”
After a lot of searching, Mooney and his travel partners happened upon the silkiest of left-hand point breaks and surfed it to their heart’s content.
