Surfers in Nova Scotia: some say snow is like sand...

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.

The Noosa Festival of Surfing revealed just why the world’s top pro’s return each year as dredging low tide conditions produced show-stopping action, during the Men’s and Women’s Pro semifinals today.

Local talent Josh Constable (Noosa) once again asserted his dominance at his home break, rising to the fore of an extraordinary semifinals clash in the Men’s Golden Breed 1-Star LQS that saw the end of his run for reigning ASP World Champion Harley Ingleby (Coffs Harbour).
