Warm water lake

Post by janMinicat »

I learned how to windsurf last year in Cadboro, on an inflatable board with a 4.9m sail. I have a wet suit, but was wondering is there a warm(ish) water lake around here that I can go to in the summer months? Beginner-intermediate level, mostly flat water. Chop at Ross seems to be a major suffer still. Thanks. Jan

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.
