Going to Canada for a week...


Friend is getting married, his wife is is from Calgary, so we are making a vacation out of this.

is it bad that the first thing on my mind was "I hope the wind is good up there" :)

Because for sure I am bringing the kite

Try to get ahold of Jeff at www.kitesource.ca
He is a great guy that lives in Calgary. Flysurfer specialist.
or Dan AKA Skypilot at www.Skypilot.com. Dan is also a great guy who will know the ins and outs of Calgary all though I think he sticks to snow and water.

I moved from Calgary almost 20 years ago. It's almost always windy there !!! If not wait 5 minutes ( you'll see what I mean.) ! Should be plenty of good spots. Glenmore park, Heritage park and coach hill would be the 1st places I'ld look.

Flexifoil: 1.7m Sting, 4.9m Blade 3, 9m Blade 2.

Snowbird is right, it is usually dry & windy (June is our wet month) and there are lots of good spots. Check out http://www.calgarykiteboarding.com Jeff is one of the moderators.

For current wind/weather check out http://www.wx.ca Hope you don't get any snow or hail from a cold front.
