Classic Boundary Bay session!!! ... even better than yesterday. Scored 3 hrs.

First hour dawn patrol ended with a major lull and my 9m kite falling out of the sky - yikes! Decided to call it a day and work at McDonald's until the Massey Tunnel of hell subsided.

Noticed the wind bounced back so I returned and slipped on my cold wet wetsuit - argh! It was worth it. Started overpowered on 9m then switched 7m - just right. Perfectly dialed in SSE 22-26. Fun waist to chest high waves outside with some smooth sections between.

Nice to ride and end the session under sunny blue sky.

Classic Boundary Bay session!!! ... even better than yesterday. Scored 1.5 hrs.

First hour dawn patrol ended with a major lull and my 5.0 sail was too small - yikes! Decided to call it a day. Derigged. Took off the wetsuit.

Noticed the wind bounced back so I returned and slipped on my cold wet wetsuit - argh! It was worth it. 4.7 - just right. Perfectly dialed in SSE 22-26. Fun waist to chest high swell outside with some choppy sections between.

After giving up this morning it was a nice surprise to see the wind kick back in. Turned into a very fun day sailing in the sun. The waves did not clean up like yesterday though, they were big today but it was super choppy pretty much the entire session. I really felt it not having my small board, yesterdays smoothies were so much nicer. 3 days sailing in a row. :D

Glad you got some. I showed up right during the lull and turned around. :roll:
