Nicely powered with 8m for 1 hour at Jericho. Plenty more wind and sun.

OSR Jericho dog beach. 25-30 knot NW, nice looking waves up at Acadia. No one around to launch me and no sand bar yet. I may he’d east the the spanish banks concession, it would be a safer self launch there.

Nice! Yeah terminal sunrise was a bust this morning. Wind was too west and didn't fill in. Caught a few gusts but not enough for a nicely powered session despite YVR showing 25 - 35 :(

that's what I saw at 430am. Trees were not moving, just strong gusts once in a while (@ Marpole close to the airport). The wind was not hitting my West window. When I saw 1.6HB I was very surprised (I was expecting 0.8 by the lack of wind).
WB had not much wind at 5 am when I arrived slowly increasing by 7 am it was cranking by then.

it was a strange morning (if looking for wind), Sand heads showing 30+, but not noticeable at the airport ... I was ready to head to North shore but given the lack of wind headed to WB. 13ft tide (high) with 1.5mhb gave the perfect combination for big ramps and speed, best waves I've seen this year.

more surf tomorrow, 1mHB but no local wind.

First time launching my kite at Jericho where the windsurfers and kite foil launch and I must say the launch was not sketchy at all for SW compared to launching at SB on SW wind.

Pretty choppy though on high tide. And what's with the weeds. And that creamy looking water -- pretty gross if I stare at it.

At Jericho 4.5M 95L board. Hot day shallow water. Little light near shore but fully powered out by freighters

OSR Locarno. Gradually dropping now. Still good away from the beach though- someone just headed out on 5.3 with lots of power.
I had 2 solid hours on 4.2/85 litres. Overpowered at 10 am when it was gusting to 35 but really good most of the time. Choppy near shore with nice waves out by the freighters.
