Wind warning is in effect. 25-35 kts sounds promising.

Is Furry Creek sailable on an inflow? Any tips?

Why not sail at Porteau Cove for an inflow? Easy parking right at the beach.

Can you kite from either location?

I would not advise kiting from either.

This is also frontal winds (not the usual thermal winds) so they will be hitting Vancouver on their way past. SW is best at White Rock, FT, and Iona (although there is a small no kiteboarding sign up at Iona these days).

For wsurfers and wingers you could also opt for Stearman Beach or Erwin Park.

Even better!

If the forecast doesn't downgrade, hopefully see some of you there!
