Tempted. Where’s the best spot to go? I picked up a foil board....probably not the best time to learn how to use it, but hey!!! Why not?! :D

3rd Ave.

Tides are not good for foiling, but if you walk out far enough it's doable. I would opt for deep water when learning unless you have a short mast.

Saw at least 1 kite on the cam for a bit today, wonder how the conditions were.

Looks like another windy day tomorrow with good tides, -2 and snowing though. I might try and get out from 3-dusk.

Well it took over an hour to drive out to bbay so it was a quick sunset session. Pretty intense conditions.
