Re: Warm water lake

Nitinat Nitinat Nitinat. Warmer in July of course. With a wing and foil lots of Cowichan Lake will work and its even warmer. And Alberni Canal gets really warm after a week of 30 degrees. And by summer Nanaimo Pipers is lovely with only a light wetsuit needed or even just boardshorts.

Do you have to use a screwdriver to get the paddle off?

Re: German couple on a big panamericana trip looking for some local people to meet / to surf with

And of course the south island has occasional low end wind (good for foiling though) even on sunny days like today. You should have been here a month or two ago! If you prone or SUP by surf driving west from Victoria you'll also find some south island spots and I'm sure you've heard about Tofino area.

Re: Downwind foil with assist

Such an interesting post Kayakdoc! Its fascinating to see the developments of free thinking even if I'll likely never be able to participate. Going outside of the kite/wing world and adapting Moth technology that https://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2015/04/15/adam-koch-expanding-boundaries/ was doing...

Re: More Novice Drone Follow-Cam 230713

Thanks that is great! I didn't know you were there either, if I knew you were recording I would have done more photogenic crashes!

Re: new leash: Anchorman 9 wing anchor invention with swivel

So.............. All the initial hype about a wing floating docilely beside or behind you out of the way and out of mind while you are free to surf the wave .......... is another case of 'alternate truth' :?: :!: :roll: :D :D :D :D :D :D Fun to see people pushing the envelope on whats possible. Thes...

Re: Wing vs regular windsurfing sail

Highrocker, how strong is that wind? It looks like a good workout and all the speed most newbies would want that aren't looking to foil.

Re: Wing vs regular windsurfing sail

Probably right on all your comments Winddoc and ittiandro clarified he already had a windsurf sail. For people who just want to drift around at the cottage or campground without always paddling, and have never experienced fast planing or foiling, I think a wing would be OK. Its so much easier than u...

Re: Wing vs regular windsurfing sail

What do you mean by a 'retractable centre fin'? Is this anything like a sailboard centreboard? This isn't one of those little centre fins that things like Starboard Start boards have? I suspect they are not going to do well. The Kona boards have a long, high aspect/high performance centreboard and i...

Re: Flat water foiling spots

What about the lee side of cordova spit in Saanichton Bay? I remember watching a couple speed sailing there in a big SE 20+ years ago. The spit is very low so little wind disturbance and the water was butter flat even in 40 knots, it would be silk at 15 or 20. Used to be able to access the regional ...

Re: Night rides with LEDs

Thanks for that Tweezer, so it can be done! I think the guy with the orange wing and the LED on the back of his board pointed downwards was much more visible in terms of understanding his location and board position/likely track than the other two with just headlamps. Mounted under the board like th...

Re: Dip Start

That is a great video, I've watched it through a few times now and learn something new each time. Not sure I've ever been 'athletic' and pretty sure the ship has sailed for ever managing the dip start, but I'd at least try it out now to see if I could use a small board. The third method using the ce...

Re: Wetsuit zip repair needed

I tried to find one last year, couldn't. Comox Kite does drysuit repairs, but not wetsuit. Let us know if you find a repair place.
