2008 Nitinaht Canada Windfest Kiteboarding photos

Postby Loscocco » Wed Aug 20, 2008 9:03 pm

First off i want to thank Ocean Rodeo and everyone else who made this trip absolutely amazing.

special thanks to:
Richard for being the man.... plus winning the race
The cooks for providing awesome food
Jeremie for coming out despite the (for him) arctic temps
Dale from Nitinaht for organizing the event
John for bringing Snoop Dog camping & showing us around Vic
Stephaans for rescuing the kite @ 3am. (my sides still hurt from laughing)
Evan for convincing me to bring my race board and getting his race board back after that crazy night on the town.


The crew not only knows how to kite like there is no tomorrow but also have a good time afterward (to put it mildly)
The winds were a little slow coming up the first few days but once they did it was nice an smooth air with good boosting.
I realized when i was out learning to ride the hydrofoil board before the big was not the best idea but despite being on the
beach rigging a new kite after getting rescued when the starting gun for the race went off I managed to get 15th place out of 58.
I already am planning for next year and can't wait :)

Here are the photos i shot during the trip.
ENJOY!

I think it's 4-5 hours from Vancouver. It's on the Island, so you have to take the Ferry from Vancouver first.

You take a ferry from Vancouver to Vancouver Island. The ride is 90 minutes but there are often sailing waits unless you make a reservation. Once you land on the island, it's about a 2 hour drive out to Nitinat. It's an unreal spot and well worth the trip - just make sure you go when there is a high pressure system over the south island and you will get sun and wind.

Cheers,

Evan
