    2 runs of sinking to the waist and an upwind walk. The only good thing was landing my kite on the beach from the beach. Unfortunately/fortunately I didn't have the time to wait for the wind to come in later. Basically I was skunked!

    first ever surfboard session (thanks Grant!), and [b:6f3cc6e8dd]more importantly[/b:6f3cc6e8dd], my first ever successful gybes on a directional board! Not very windy, but [b:6f3cc6e8dd]perfectly [/b:6f3cc6e8dd]smooth and steady wind, loads of fun learning the surf thing :D , and just a few of us out there. According to Dave, who (no surprise here) was out for hours, it was the best wind of the day).

I beg to differ.....it was perfect Formula conditions..super smooth and steady wind....I shot up to the river mouth then down to the boat launch....YahooOOO!!!! Poor other souls sitting on the beach.

    Report said 14 knots and I only had an hour so I thought I would only bring the Go150 and the 7.5m sail. Pulled up and met Bean who let me know it had just cranked up to 20 plus. Ran home, got the small board and sail and went out. Beauty day in the sun. Got home and ended up sailing with the fam around Gabriola, this place doesn't get any better.

    Nice day at the beach - except the bay was almost empty, litterally

    - at first there was only enough water for two kites inside the boats, it was brutal, and even that was pushing it, but later it filled up to a more reasonable level. It kind of reminded me of kiting in a puddle!

    Anyway, good day overall, nice weather, good to be on the water again.

    I hadn't been to Columbia in a couple of years. Even took a wrong turn on the way there. I'll have to get there more often though. Sweet 4 hour session. Nice little shore break to play in and I didn't even have to look over my shoulder cause I was the only dude out there. Man that's a fun place.

Picked up to 15 so I took out the Hypersonic for 1 hour and max'd out at 46.6 km/h. It picked up again to 18 so took out the Carve 121 still with the 8.0 rigged. It seemed to pick up again so rigged up the new Severne 5.5m NCX but it pretty much backed off right then(I think I scared it as it hadn't seem me with such a small sail ever...HA) so took out the Hyper again and cruized fo ...

    First ride on the Naish Hybrid Wave 85. Weird but really fun! Loving the new fish style boards. Super easy to loop at only 7'. It practically autorotates!! Handled a 5.5 no problem. Boosts air nicely off even small ramps. Managed to sail away from two backs and a few forwards.

    Really nice to sail with the crew again at Gordo's. Lots of spinning and jumping going on. Steph's no longer a Gordon's virgin and did great :) .

    Got off work early and almost went ot Cook St. but thought Gordo's was a better bet - looks like I made the right choice. Sailed the 4.7 for the first hour, mostly powered up, then went to the 5.6 when the wind came down a notch. The wind was best in the middle where the best swell was. :)

    sunvurnt and happy, got my high for the day. :) Once again, the 14 was the kite to have for when I was out (16 would have worked well too).

    started out windier, then slowly dropped down. A good hour of the high teens, windwise. Wind slowly got lighter, then came in strong just 8efore 8:00, then really cranked! I was home at that time, however...

    NOTE: always spin the 8ar completely, not a half spin.

    Got what I asked for - the gang at gordo's and some new gear - love the carbon boom and freestyle fin! Some vulcan crashdowns with arms crossed over face, helis, backs over and under-rotated, and a couple of punishing forward attempts. Smiling from ear to ear! Too bad Gordon's is so far from Nanaimo.

    I loved it. Lots of ramps as Dave said. I tried forwards 4 times didn't go well, but hey as long as I make an effort :evil: Lots of jumps, quite a few ugly duck jibes, micro boomerang, many attempts to tack (unsuccessfully) Nice and warm
