Clickity-clack, Clickity-clack, Clickity-clack, wind whipping by your face, the fierce power of the sail in your hands, your feet grasping tightly to every grain of grip on your board. Then finally, you lean back, hook in and glide through the water in ecstasy. Likely if you are reading this, you felt that feeling 20 years ago when you first got planing and into your footstraps. Want that feeling again? Try to get your hands on a foil for your windsurf board. After all the travelling I’ve done in my life, there are not many places in the world I really want to go back to. However, I have really come to enjoy Canada’s playground and have been back three times this year already. This past winter as the foil craze was unfolding in warmer weather, I was enjoying the scenery of Canada on a snowboarding trip. Since people love new trends and new inventions, I thought let’s add another element of new and photograph it in the picturesque setting of Canada. Canada you ask? Why not?, I say – the beauty of windfoiling is that you don’t need somewhere that is super windy. That’s right folks, we can finally have a blast right off our docks in 7 to 10 knots or less! You get up on the wing of the foil and you can ride it through the gusts, through the lulls and enjoy that flying feeling that first brought us all into windsurfing back once we had our first planing run. Planing might have been the demise of our sport but now it is back and windfoiling makes “mowing the lawn” fun again. So off I went, looking for that perfect mountain spot to take the foil out in with a stunning backdrop and some fun places to adventure through. Only catch was, I hadn’t ridden a foil yet.
