Spots Montreal-River-Surfing-Right-Sides.png

Published on May 3rd, 2017 | by RB Team


Right Sides

This spot is right next to Habitat 67 (on the right side of the main wave, therefore its name “Right Sides”). The wave is best surfable in spring; in summer, the wave is too shallow and you risk to break your board or hurt yourself. Also, be aware of a rock, which is just behind the wave on the surfer’s right. Update: The wave was destroyed in winter of 2014-2015. It is a big hole now and shouldn’t be surfed at all. Dangerous.

How to Get There

Wave Details


  • Best in spring, when flows are higher (> 8,000)


  • Great in spring, often too flat in summer.
  • Usually pretty hard to catch by paddle-in
  • Generally, if the wave is too green to catch, it’s too flat to surf.


  • The wave was destroyed during winter 2014-2015. It is a big hole now and shouldn’t be surfed at all. Dangerous.
  • There’s a rock just behind the wave.
  • Do not surf in summer, as the water is usually pretty shallow.


  • Swim in if it has a lot of white on the face.
  • Use a bigger board if the wave is too hard to catch.
  • Bring booties! (the bottom of the river is not actually foot friendly and the walk back neither).
