Save Lighthouse Surf Break! sign now

Lighthouse surf break at Bluffers Park Toronto is in imminent danger of being destroyed forever.  The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) will be seeking approval from government bodies (City Council) as early as June of 2017 to approve coastal development in Scarborough, including the development of the Western segment of the Bluffers Park. 

As surfers, SUPers and residents, we support Headland Protection and a Bluffers Redevelopment for the enjoyment and safety of everyone. However, the proposed changes to the Western Segment of the Scarborough Waterfront Project will destroy the most unique, high quality SW surf break in the City of Toronto which we call Lighthouse.  This piece of the development will also stand to eliminate the SW swell in the Bluffers East Main Beach which is often surfed by the growing numbers of beginner surfers and SUP enthusiasts.  

We, the undersigned, ask the TRCA, the Toronto City Council, our MPs and MPPs to work together with the GTA’s growing SUP/surf community and reconsider the plans for the Western segment of the Scarborough Waterfront Project so that it can achieve the goals of the project without destroying what many of us consider to be the best quality surf break that the City of Toronto has to offer.  We urge the TRCA to work with members of our SUP/surf community on this and other coastal development projects so that these developments can add to our community without destroying what we already have.
