I now live in San Diego and I must say that these two beaches are better than some of the beaches we have down here in terms of sand quality and over all experience.
You think the beaches in San Diego were better than what is up in Grand Beach and Gimli?

I thought the beaches in San Diego (Corranado, even Imperial) were pretty good, ecspecially the one by hotel Del.

Grand Beach though has fantastic sand true... But many times you don't get great beach weather in Manitoba unfortunatly.

Some of the beaches in San Diego are indeed much better than those I mentioned in Manitoba, however, there are some (like Ocean Beach) which I would rank lower than both Grand Beach and the beach in Gimli.

Also of note in NB are the beaches at Kouchibouquac, Aboiteau near Cap-Pele NB and for surfing (albeit freezing water!!) Lawrencetown Beach in Nova Scotia.
tofino on vancouver island has some ok waves to surf
