Lake Surfistas - formerly LOTL (Ladies of the Lakes) started off as an idea to bring together the ever-growing number of females discovering the joy, fun, and community of surfing, stand up paddle boarding (sup), and sup surfing the Lower Great Lakes and beyond.
For the last five years, our yearly event has taken place at the Pleasant Beach Lodge, near Port Colborne, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Erie, thanks to the Wyldewood Surf Club.
The original founders, Lisa Parkes – an artist and surfer from Cobourg; and Robin Pacquing – an instructor and established GL surfer; are passionate water keepers. Their understanding that a female community of surfers, paddlers, and water women can only lead to more awareness, education, and promotion of the waters in which we live around, as well as the sport of surfing on the Great Lakes.
