SQUAMISH: MOTHER OF WIND
Squamish means “mother of wind” in native language, no wonder why it is always windy! In the summer, Squamish gets thermal wind everyday! A classic Squamish day in the summer would be 20 knots of wind, gusting to 22 knots. You have never seen anything like it!
KITEBOARDING FROM THE SPIT
The spit is the best kiteboarding spot in Squamish. It is a spot for intermediate and advanced rider. The wind blows off shore from the spit, and the landing and launching zone is small, crowded, and full of pointy rocks. It can be challenging for beginners to kite from the spit, but it is an awesome place for intermediate and advanced riders. Since the wind blows off shore from the spit, the spit creates a sheltered area that we call the honey hole. It is a large area of extremely flat water. All riders love riding at the spit!
No matter where you have been kiteboarding in your life, you have never seen a scenic view like we have here! You have never seen anything like it! Squamish is the best kiteboarding spot!
KITEBOARDING WITH SEALS
