Looks like wind is shifting between S and SSW. You may end up at the Ferry Terminal.

Managed around an hour on my 10 at 3rd. I think it was Luke on a foil and Cash showed up. It was a bit gusty for my taste at times but a pleasant time nonetheless. Basically dry and 13 degrees. Dec. 1st. Can’t be bad. Did anyone ride at the terminal? Details please ! :D

What turned out to be a very disappointing windsurf session turned into a very fun winging session. Rigged 4.7 as conditions looked great when I arrived, Dave was rigging 4.5 and Jens looked lit on his 5.0. Waves were looking good and I was stoked, but by the time I hit the water things were starting to get light. I got one reach on the 4.7 and then it was slog time. Came back in and grabbed the wing. Just as I was heading out the wind picked back up. By the time sailed up to 3rd Ave. it was just Dan and I on the water for a while. Got tired and did a down winder back to Centennial, super fun in the sun!

Started out on 5.7 but did one reach and was too overpowered, quickly rigged 5.0, which worked out great. Waves were building but never got great, a little over the place but could find some decent turns here and there. Sunshine and was actually a little too warm in just suit and booties. Saw a few whale spouts too. When Michael and Dave joined later the wind quickly came down unfortunately. Glad you made it work on the wing Michael:)

Was decent at porteau Cove too today. Downwinded to furry Creek on 3.5 wing, some steep waves at the creek outlet and decent temps!

Sun was out, wind was on, swell was building...

...and then it wasn't. Jens got the best of it.

Ya thanks for the pictures Dave! It was a very disappointing November, I hope December improves. Glad I had the wing.
