Well 2 weeks left! Thanks for the advice, I scouted out some good sites when I was in town. The best perk is access to the RMC windsurfing club! They have rigged sails and boards ready to go from a private launch! sweeeeet. This is truly a unique community! I hope everyone have a great summer and fa...

Sweet, feeling a little more stoaked! I remember sailing out of RMC on pirates (think 420 clones) and sailing in big winds almost every day! Every time we were told to launch the spin, and get out on trapeze! Sounds like my gear should be well sized for there at least! Now who wants to buy a house LOL

I was on a forum that went to it, never used as my smart phone can easily handle a web based forum! Same goes for BWD I just use the browser on my phone.

Wow very scary story, I tend to sail side-off conditions, at esquimalt lagoon. However in most cases I'd end up downtown plus there is a very high amount of marine traffic! I remember one time when I ditched out there and pasta dude went out in his canoe to save my gear ! ( thanks man!) Being stuck ...

Not to totally hijack the thread but I was up there in December last year and it was amazing.... by far some of the best skiing.... not as many starbucks as whistler though.

BTW I think you should buy more gear and sell the old stuff off all the time, you give great deals that harness is awesome!

Love the look, I will always lean towards more volume given the choice! So having a shape that give volume and performance/fun seems like a win! Getting TOW and having fun is really the whole point right? I love sailing my SUP tons of fun, but having a mix between that and my 112 liter freeride boar...
