Surfing the Great Lakes book mentions Huronview Park which should work on N, NW winds. But I did not find such place on the map. I would think of Canatara Beach See surfspot at Google Maps as the most perspective surf spot in Sarnia, ON, which could work on North winds.

Sauble Beach See surfspot at Google Maps on Canadian shore of lake Huron is a great town for a vacation with nice shops and eateries on Main St. and bunch of cottages here and there. It offers great, long, sandy beach which works best on NW, SW winds. The water is refreshing even in Summer, but still, a very good surf spot. If you have issues with parking, go little bit South to Saugeen Nation beach. For current conditions see surf cam.

The Grand Bend's city beach See surfspot at Google Maps is good on its own, but it maybe worth checking the Pinery's See surfspot at Google Maps South beach as well (even though the Pinery is a provincial park with paid access).

Wasaga Beach, ON See surfspot at Google Maps, is very popular and crowded during Summer time and a well-known kiting and wind-surfing spot. You may see not much surfable waves from the shore as the beach is quite shallow for quite far. But Area 5 See surfspot at Google Maps and Area 6 See surfspot at Google Maps are known to have good waves past the last sandbar (thanks Amani!).

Hamilton, ON See surfspot at Google Maps has a well-established surf spot on the North side of Burlington/Hamilton lifting bridge (aka The Bridge)See surfspot at Google Maps works on E, NE winds. Unfortunately the forecast needs to be cut in half for North winds. There are good amenities (change room, shower) on Burlington side (Burlington Beachway Park)See surfspot at Google Maps side, the sandbar on Burlington side is good for bodyboarding. See videos on how surfing at Hamilton, ON can look like in May, August, September.

Fifty Point with Kelson BeachSee surfspot at Google Maps is south of Hamilton (towards Grimsby). The sandbar works well on North, East, North East winds, conditions match nicely with Grimsby Buoy readings. If you go through conservation area gates, you'll have to pay 10 CAD. Gate hours are 7 a.m. to sunset.

I've read about numerous sandbars and shore breaks on Van Wagners beachSee surfspot at Google Maps working on E, NE had not surf there being happy with the sandy beach at the Bridge.

Web cam at Fifty Point Yacht Club is handy to eyeball current surf conditions and approximate it to all mentioned beaches. On West and South winds all spots around Hamilton are flat, so and if you see a non-zero forecast - you may ignore it.
