Where will the wind take you? Windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, sailing?

The St. Lawrence River is a 1,100-km nautical paradise. You can even go surfing in Montréal. The Îles-de-la-Madeleine region is perfect for windsurfing. On Lac Saint-Jean, Lac Saint-Pierre or any other Québec body of water, let the wind sweep you along. Rent your equipment at certain beaches and marinas, or rental stores.


Water sports are typically practised from May to October, and in the winter you can go traction kiting on our frozen lakes. Try it out!

Did you know?

You can go surfing year-round at two indoor recreation centres.
