My guess is they won't resume til the swell picks up on Saturday

Session 1 – SUP – Long Beach (2019 May 17)

Image
Rise and shine. Surprise blue bird sky, light crowds and some south swell made for a fun warm up session. Got cut short by morning after late night arrival registration at Green Point (gate house doesn’t open until 10 am now). Thanks to Tsawwassen for the GoPro (all water shots).

Session 2 – windsurf – Long Beach (2019 May 17)

Image
Rejected. SE wind teased, but strong current, side-on wind, and low tide walls of foam made for lots of rejections and a few LONG swims. Jan said one clearing set (that cleared me out) was logo high. Still nice to try and get in some ground swell practice.

Session 3 – SUP – Cox Bay (2019 May 18)

Image
Bombs. Rain stopped in the night and sun had returned. Long Beach was rolly and confuse, Rosie and South Chesterman had four rows of whitewater (big sets were breaking a long way out on the low tide), North Chesterman was flat, Cox Bay was clean and was offering up variety. Jan and I sent the morning here and just about had one party wave. Saw Jan connect with a few multi-hit rides (even though he was wishing he’d brought the long board instead of his shortboard). There were a few bombs rolling through mid to north beach. Caught a few of the smaller ones mid-beach. Better than expected, much better.

Hey Dave, glad you got to use the gopro. :D Looks like you scored a few nice days, I can't wait to get back out there. Thanks for the pics.

Session 4 – SUP – Chesterman – North and South (2019 May 19)

Image
Mini to Maxi. After a frstruating afternoon of wave shopping (stirred up conditions everywhere) yesterday afternoon, I started the day with a hedge – small wave SUP at North Chesterman. Then walked over to South Chesterman just a marching band of south swell cleared out the cove. Then the swell spread out on the rising tide. Came in to text the others (it was that good). More than a few solid waves rolled through. Jan and David joined in. Super fun swell angle that let you ride them down the beach. Jake mentioned he saw me catch a few solid waves.

Session 5 – windsurf – South Chesterman (2019 May 19)

Image
Surprise. I didn’t think there was going to be any way I was going to get parking again, but decided to head off to the bakery and ice cream and I got my spot back! Wind had filled in and slog n’ ride was on offer. Wind backed after some bobbling and then filled in for ‘dinner’ and Tony joined in making it four. Super fun. Even better when the surfers thinned out. Jesse mentioned wave quality and Matt seemed to be enjoying his first SUP-sail session on the stubby. Thanks to Jan for shooting some pcitures! Ice cream on the cake! Dinner beach side grill at the Pacific Sands Resort.
