Looking promising for CB on the island. But not CB on mainland.

Too bad my windsurf is still in Squamish so I guess I'll have to settle with 5m kite.

CB island. 8m too much. Pumping 5m. ~25knots SE. the low tide has killed the waves Joined by 2 other windsurfers.

Not a bad turnout. 2 windsurfers, 2 kiters and 2 wingers. Not as busy as I'm used to be in. In low tide, way out there are still some good size swells (2-3 feet high). Because it's not sandy beach like 3rd ave beach, the walk in/out was a little rough on my booties due to barnacles. But overall still fun and made it in time for my afternoon meeting.

Saturday and Sunday wind at CB. I’m loving this rain forecasts.

Wave forecasts for Tofino as well on Saturday

Good to see DavidM and Ralph (eastside) in the BWD Sail Log again. I was worried they were MIA.

Where's KUS nowadays? ... Oddly it's KUS (and Jellyfish) who pushed me to log my session on BWD ... so I do it religiously

Light wind maybe around ~15 to ~18 knots SE at CB. Solo session for 1.5 hour. Low tide exposes the weed and catches my fin almost dragging me but after realizing they're there I just kept on hopping on so didn't get caught by them.

Fun and relaxing late morning session without the crowd. True island feeling.

CB has delivered again. 17 to 23 knots SE. No rain just clouds and occasional sun. Solo session for 2 hours. I’m getting the hang of this place
