What better way to appreciate the glories of nature than a brisk paddle in the Atlantic waters surrounding Nova Scotia?! East Coast Surf School offer expert lessons for those looking to try the sport for the first time or brush up on their technique. If you want to get out there and explore for yourself, they also offer surfboard ($20) and wetsuit rentals ($20) for the day.
The school is owned by international professional surfer, Nico Manos (who is also the coach of the Canadian Junior Surf Team). He's built a lovely team of talented instructors, so you're in safe hands as you discover a new part of the sea!
