Getting in was fun!







Getting out is another story.

This spot is for accomplished riders only. ie strong current, boat traffic, terrible access/egress.

yeah its great once you get out there. But the other day when it the gusts were 60kmh the river was getting really hairy and it was next to imposible to hold any kind of egde. then i had a crazy wipeout and i ended up 200 feet up stream from my board. luckly it came back in the backflow that there is there, if not it would have been gone in the current

Going downwind to Purdy's beach area was my alternate exit point. The current is strong there, but its shallow near shore and there is a strip of sand to dump your kite on.

Watch out for submerged re-bar in that jagged concrete.

Cool man. With your egress being Purdy's Beach, do you have to hop the fence that they now have chained up. A little trivia for those not fimiliar with Nick's entry point, It's actually an old ship, the Sidney Smith, secured to shore and filled with gravel. Check it out on goggle earth and you'll be able to make out the shape.

Your right Glenn, the gate is chained up and there is barbed wire on the top, so hoping this fence is probably a bad idea.
However if you walk along the east side of the point up to the boat ramp you can find your way though a few bushes and around the fence.

Either way your trespassing and are subject to a slap on the wrist.
Walking back upwind would likely be a larger concern laugh.gif
