Kitesurfing in Boundary Bay.
I borrowed a wetsuit from a friend and attempted to go kitesurfing in nearby Boundary Bay. I say attempted because I was a little too excited to get out on the water, and within 30 seconds of launching my kite, crashed it into a nearby garden, causing a perforated bladder, and a rip in the sail. I was able to fix it up, and a few days later, got out for my first Pacific NW kiting session. It wasn't a lot different than Mexico, except that everyone was bundled up in 5mm wetsuits, with hoods, gloves, and booties. The water temperature here is about 10C, compared to 20C water in Mexico.
