Larry is a straight up beautician. He's the perfect guy to buy a surf board from. He's super knowledgeable, passionate, committed, service oriented and respectful. Surf Dreams Canada is a great operat...ion he's got going; I highly recommend it for all your surf needs. Also, huge respect to Larry for his tremendous contributions to the Great Lakes community. 👊 See More

Best surf shop and the friendliest, knowledgeable, helpful, and genuine owner in Ontario. I recommend Larry and Surf Dreams Canada to anyone who asks me about surfing and paddling on the Great Lakes. ...Larry doesn't just sell boards and surf equipment, you will leave with a new friend in the surf community. He will make sure you're not only comfortable with the equipment you choose, but will also help you get out and start learning. The passion Larry shares for protecting the Greak Lakes through beach clean-ups and and community orientation is absolutely amazing. I have yet to experience a shop that comes close to offering what Larry does (product and personality). Thank you Larry for everything! ♥ I will see you soon for an SUP ;) See More

Surf Dreams Canada is a one stop shop for lake and ocean surf. Whether you want to hit the lip, hang some 10, do massive floaty airs, or just get pitted you've come to the right place. With many years... of experience surfing the Great Lakes and abroad Larry Cavero makes it easy to select the correct gear to help you enjoy your surf experience. If you're surfing there will be dings, no problem!!! He offers a comprehensive professional ding repair service, with timely turnarounds to keep you ready for the next swell that will hit. Larry stands behind all the gear in his shop. He has used or is currently using everything that he offers so don't be surprised if your surf wardrobe matches when you both how up to beach. haha also, if there are waves, Larry will be there and who don't like to have a party waves now and then.... I do!!!
I just can't say enough good things about Surf Dreams Canada and Larry Cavero.

I'm an Ocean surfer recently turned Lake Surfer. I needed info on where to go, how to get set-up (wetsuit, booties, mitts, board etc) and Larry and Surf Dreams Canada hooked me up with everything I ne...eded. Larry isn't just someone at a shop willing to help you out, but he makes you feel like part of his family. That's how much he cares. I'd recommend this place to all Great Lake Surfers in the area looking for a place to get their board and gear. See More

You can't ask for anything more, Larry is fantastic, his attitude will make it hard for you not to get excited about surfing! As someone trying to get into great lake surfing, which can be daunting, ...I was put at ease when I spoke with Larry. It was obvious from the start that Larry's priority was to get me the most suitable equipment and help me get some waves. He was honest about what to expect from the products and which would suit me best for my skill level and conditions, and at the price, you can feel confident that you are getting the best equipment and deal around. If you are looking to get surfing in the great lakes I would highly recommend Larry and Surf Dreams Canada. See More

I can't say enough good things about Surf Dreams Canada or Larry. Not only have I been able to outfit myself with everything I need to hit the lakes from the shop, but Larry has been more than amazin...g in giving me tips, helping me get orientated with the local surf, and being a conduit into the local surfing community. Larry and Surf Dreams are a true advocate of the Great Lake Surfing Community in Ontario. So, lucky to have him as a resource and support! Keep up the stoke and awesome work! See More

Dealing with Surf Dreams Canada is a great experience. Not only do you get quality products for all levels of surfer, but after dealing with Surf Dreams you can be sure to always come out a little bit... more knowledgeable about the surf scene on rhe great lakes. It's a small but quickly growing community and Larry and the Surf Dreams team are right there in terms of people responsible for helping this amazing sport grow in Ontario! Gracias Surf Dreams!

I've used Surf Dreams exclusively since I discovered the company and met Larry. Larry's knowledge of the local breaks and conditions needed are second to none. The pure stoke and positive vibes from ...Larry and his company are amazing he is the most willing person I have met in the lake surfing to get anyone at any skill level into surfing here purely to grow the sport and I have huge respect for that. He has also tested nearly every board he sells so when you walk into the shop he will be able to find the perfect board for you. Overall the best retail experience I have had in Toronto. Thumbs up!!!

Larry at Surf dreams is always so stoked to help. Larry is the kind of guy that will literally give you the shirt or the wetsuit off his back.( he got me started this winter with his own old 654 and a... pair of gloves because I couldn't afford to buy one yet. He does however offer wicked deals ) Larry had the fins my friend needed when he made his new board when we couldn't find them anywhere else. You've gotta go check out Larry's shop full of the coolest surf stuff. Larry is so full of life and love for surfing that he is an absolute blast to be around. Can't wait for the next sesh! See More

My experience with Larry and Surf Dreams Canada was fantastic. First of all, Larry was extremely helpful and made sure I was happy with the board and made sure I had everything I needed. He explained ...everything clearly and offered advice on getting back into the sport. His attitude towards surfing is infectious and got me excited to get my board on the water. Also, his prices are next to none. Way less expensive than other places I'd gone. I'd recommend going to Surf Dreams Canada for anything you need. You won't spend a fortune and you'll get to have a great conversation with an experienced surfer who just wants you to enjoy the sport as much as he does. See More
