Off with the training wheels!05 Aug 2016 | Cook Street Ocean Rodeo Mako
Three years ago I was walking with my family on a windy day on Dallas Road. We saw a bunch of people in the ocean, with big kites and boards, sailing across the water. I was entranced, I have always liked kites and flew small ones on Clover Point. I thought to myself, I want to try that. So after lessons and about 50 sessions at the “safe” place on Vancouver Island to learn Kiteboarding — Nitinat Lake (a paradise of remote wilderness) — I went to Cook Street for my first time today. It was thrilling! My training wheels are finally off!
