I was out that day as well, went in at the boat launch by Lakeside. the wind does weird things there thats for sure. One minute its side onshore, the next it's direct offshore. The wind on the opposite side of the lake near west side was really good, but only for the last 50 meters.

I saw the 2 windsurfers blasting laps from Rainbow, one guy was getting sweet laydown gybes. Went to have a look and the wind was WAAAAY more consistent on Rainbow, I'll be going in there from now on.

There was also one guy on a wing foil that dropped in off West Side, made me look like I was going backwards!
