Not a bad turnout of windsurfers today at CB today - no kiter for a change :-) I'd say it was 20-25 knots ESE and switching back and forth with 3.7m and 4.5m

Thanks Santa. More wind coming on the 26th and 28th. Come on out.

Yesterday was another amazing day on the water at CB. Really liking my super skinny boom as I feel more control even my pinky finger has a good grip on it. And my hands don't get tired even with open palm gloves.

Has the wind at the island always been this consistent in December? Just feels weird cuz us mainlanders don't get dayssss of wind like this in December -- maybe 1 or 2.

One more last December wind on the 31st -- my last session for the year 2019. I don't count my sessions but I'm pretty sure I have a lot :-) Maybe next year I'll start counting sessions -- a New Years resolution. Maybe I'll feel better about myself if I can put numbers in my sessions.

Hey AJ, glad you're enjoying the island. I've been watching the webcam enviously from the Okanagan, looks like you're having fun. Happy New Year!

The season started really late and with a big gap after the thermals shut down but talking to the guys who've sailed the Island for years they've never had a December this consistent.
