Today was a fun day at Lake Diefenbaker which is just 100km south of Saskatoon. It was looking windy on the drive there, and there were some rain clouds to the east that I was worried would kill the wind. Luckily they stayed east and didn't effect the wind too much. When we arrived which was later in the day(3:30pm). The wind was a bit lighter then I was expecting around 17 knots. So I went with my 6.0m wing and 760 F4 GP front foil. I was expecting the wind to die a bit more as the session went on. Coming out of the small bay of the boat launch as I got out into the lake. It got shallow, I was up on the foil and ran aground shallow. I was a bit bummed as it was a rocky bottom. A repair to the foil will come later. Once out and riding it was good and a bit gusty, but enough to get up most of the time easily. With so much room to play I could have gone for a long up winder but decided to stay closer incase it got light. Well the sun cam out and then at the end the wind pick up a bit. The waves were smaller than I thought. The swell can get really good on windy days here. Today wasn't windy enough to get the swell going. Still a really fun day ripping around, and was out for just under and hour. It was a nice warm day as well with the air temp at 27C. The water is starting to get cool already. I have windsurfed this spot many times and it was fun to foil it. It reminds me how smooth foiling is, and this is the lake to do some serious distance. That will be for next time :).
