Today - To my eye Howe Sound outflow looks on.

Option 2 today - NE appears to be on it's way for Centenial & 3rd. Looks lighter than Howe Sound by closer and typical launch areas.

For Sunday - is that (as of current) as for sure forecast for Columbia Beach?

Columbia Beach was OK. Light, 5.3 102L, and the waves were small but a few showed up later. Kites filled the break at the start so hung out with Jesse, Dave and Riley up wind for the first while then moved down when the waves started breaking and the kiters thinned out. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to Grant, next time I'll say hello, thank your wife for the pictures though!

Columbia was awesome yesterday! Had to rig down shortly in the session as the 12m was just too much! Got out on the 9m and it was a great time! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Rode Roughly 11am - 4pm with a re-rig break in-between. Was a very full and punchy wind, felt much stronger than the speeds said it was.

The brosendersons were in full force :!: (Myself, Loren and Matt) Excellent boosting wind, with great ramps all around to launch off of!

I don't think I have kited around so many windsurfers before! Looked like they were having a great time. Saw 2x very skilled pole dancers!! Trying Backrolls and good wave hit airs! Nice work guys!

Unfortunately, I got yelled at by one female windsurfer who seemed quite un-impressed that we were riding on the water in the same area as them. Which was a little disappointing to me, as I watched our whole crew always give way to them when approaching on a similar tack, or fully give way if they were riding a wave. I felt we were being extremely respectful to them. But hey! you cant please everyone! And no one owns the water, so lets all just calm down and have a good safe time out there!

Don't mess with her. She owns the ocean.

seems to take 4 hours from Saturna peak to CB surf; to get 1.2mHB+ waves Saturna may have to be on, otherwise 0.7m

NW tomorro Tuesday 2pm peak, 4 pm best waves (from Sisters, seems 0.9mHB at 4pm).
