Looks like there may be a bit of wind tomorrow? Anyone else thinking of sailing Acadia? If my ribs aren't too sore I think I'll try and get out winging at Dog Beach.

Hey Michael, I will probably check it out around 3-4 later. Not sure if I will go to Acadia or kook beach, parking may dictate that. Hope to see you out there. cheers. rich

Gusting 25 at Locarno. Checked out Acadia earlier, looked like 5 knots lower at least.

Scored 1.5 hrs on 8m+surfboard near Spanish Banks in W 18-25. Super choppy and overheated ... otherwise fun in the sun.

Super fun catching waves up at Acadia with Chuck. It was just us at first, and then a few others joined. Saw one windsurfer, a few wingers and a few kiters. My first summer session at Acadia, it's so nice! Starting to feel really comfortable on the 72L.

Nice unicorn session for me, not many 20+ knot days in 25 degrees in Vancouver to be had. Only thing missing was low tide.

Thanks for the video Slappy. That was me on the wing. :D

I ended up windfoiling on a 4.2 (started on a 4.6 and it was waaay too much). I think I saw Jens there with his 5.x Goya, powered up. It was a bit wild tbh, but fun.
