    Lachine:

    I have personally surfed 67 a couple of times, but neither of the others. 67 there is parking right next to the wave (although a few people have been getting parking tickets sometimes, and the occasional tresspassing ticket b/c the walk to the river is private property). After each surf you have to walk back up along shore. Its a fun wave, but the process of surfing it is a bit tiring.

    The other two, I know very little about, except that a swim at lachine will be very long (30 minutes +) and potentially dangerous, so be careful.

    Yes a swim at Lachine would be bad and mostly you have to go with someone who knows the line to get to the play spots. You absolutely want to avoid the ledges and stay where the waves are the biggest when running the rapids. The current is super fast so you have to be guided in the right place the 1st time at least. Very busy place in the summer though, you should not have any problems finding freinds to guide you down.

    Hey Zack,

    If you are planning on day at Lachine this summer let me know. Me and Zachary would be interested and maybe a couple other club members too!

    I would not touch habitat (water is just plain gross in that spot).

    We would be game to go to Chambly too as well as the Rouge river.

    You might even want to spend a couple hours in Valleyfield.

    Geeze man make it a weekend and you can camp in our backyard. (We are 40 minutes from Montreal, 45 minutes to the Rouge, 30 minutes from Valleyfied.

    Let us know
