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!).
