New ‘Links’ page and tab, PLUS new Beach Info video

October update: Check out the ‘Beach Info’ tab for a new Aerial video of Mike Shaw kiting and jumping near the beach.

I have added a new menu tab with the label ‘Links’.

It goes to a page that contains links to items of interest for windsurfers and kiteboarders. I started it off with a couple of links to kiteboarding safety videos.

Check it out, and if you have links you think are worthwhile adding, please let me know.


Brighten up?

We were at the beach the other day when a couple of friendly RCMP officers stopped to mention that boaters have occasionally had difficulty seeing kiters and windsurfers when they are wearing a dark wetsuit and sailing a dark kite or sail.

For more visibility, consider wearing a bright colored PFD, or perhaps a bright colored rashguard shirt over your wetsuit.

Breakwater Beach improvements

Saturday, June 28, 2014 the beach was cleaned up, and organized. Luk arranged to have a small excavator there which was able to perform some quite amazing feats for its size. It was able to lift and move the concrete barriers, those huge rocks, and other junk that was spread around willy nilly. Luk had a plan for everything, and the guys operating the excavator executed the plan perfectly. Jeremy and I cleaned up the beaches and helped where we could. There is now more room for everyone to rig, launch, and move around.
