Thanks for this reply. By thermal winds do you mean winds that are almost guaranteed at a certain time of the day? (For instance, I know that in Mui Ne, Vietnam they have "thermal winds" and basically every morning at 10:00 the wind starts picking up, with basically no exception)

Cheers

agrelon Thanks for the replies.

I just noticed that Columbia River Gorge is within a days drive away. That place looks mental!

Note on the sidebar "sites" for various windsurfing locations. There can be year round sailing, though some times are much better than others.

Nice. I used to do a lot of BMXing before focusing on windsurfing, so that could be a plus.

Windsurfing in Vancouver, Canada

Hi all,

I might go to Vancouver after summer for university and I'm wondering what it's like for windsurfing...

I'm not picky, coming from Hong Kong where I get a decent sail about once a fortnight...

Has anyone sailed in Vancouver/ know of windsurfing in Vancouver?

Any information would be appreciated.

Cheers.
