Day 24 - Classic Squamish day. Steady SW 18-22 on 12m+surfboard. Worked on tacks for 2 hrs. Almost 3 times ... made it around but my back touched the water so they looked more like waterstarts.

Day 25 - Another fine day at Squamish. Early start before noon. Steady SW 18-22. 3 hrs on 12m + surfboard. Finally completed my first tack - not very graceful with my legs dangling mid-air but I landed it without getting wet. :D :D :D

Great afternoon at Porteau too. Very steady slalom wind, about 16-18 knots. Just right on my 6.6/Futura 111 from 3-4pm then a bit overpowered for the last hour. I’d say a 12m kite with surfboard would have been fine too (except for the barnacles on the beach).
Just me and two foil-windsurfers blasting around in the warm sun!!
