We started at 11:30 till 4:00.
Wind is light probably 10-15kn. But it's enough for 8 or even 6m.

Had two problems today. My kite leash get detached and I had to run 200m to catch my kite. Thanks that It happened on land not water. After I spent 30 min with lines it was mostly dark. I started going downwind too fast, lines get slack and then back in full power, lost control felt and was dragged for 5m.
So lesson one for me double check leash, two don't go downwind too fast.

Wind didn't come today. It wasn't warm enough in Vancouver. Sunny on a lake, no fresh snow like last time, only ice. Did one run and wind died completely .
Outflow switched to inflow.
Saw whitecaps on a way from Whistler.
Squamish had regular thermal wind 20-25kn.
