    Default Re: high winds/Ocean ride

    I was out of town and missed the wind storm here. Was wondering if anybody had the chance to see the water swells and to offer a report on it.
    (Was thinking strongly of ocean ride for an hour had I been here)

    Wow, you are a crazy man aren't you? I was coming back down the sea-to-sky highway during the storm and stopped at Porteau Cove to get out in the weather. I've never stood in such strong wind before - the kind you have a hard time standing up in. The whitecaps on the ocean were intense and all I could think of was how cool it would be to ride around in it - except for the whole getting killed thing.
    I'll post some pics in a bit.

    Thanks Kev. I have the ski indoors right now un-winterized and see we may have a high of 9 and some sun coming.
    I might go for a 1 hour ride (as brutally cold as it will be) to cure my withdrawals. It will be the ocean as it's a bit warmer and much clearer than the Fraser this time of year.

    Damn, sure hope your wetsuit is thick. Here's some pics of us in the windstorm:

    Jaz in the wind. Check out the bent trees behind:
