Burlington Beach - Light Wind + 3ft Waves

Lake Ontario Burlington Ontario, Canada

Bah! If you've sailed here you know the deal:

- Forecast shows 20kts

- You get there on the beach and it's windy with lots of white caps

- You struggle to get out through the waves and take a pounding

- Wind is crap and You barely get planing

This happens to me just about every time I go here. I love the location, but you need a lot of damn wind here to make it work.

I enjoyed riding the waves, getting in 1 strap, and getting out on the water. Wave rides aren't too long here, you have to try to hop from one wave to another. Keep on your toes as you ride in or else you risk trashing your gear here.

Weather Conditions

Typical Burlington Beach!
