Like the topic says, Old Man Dam is free of ice. I believe the gate to Windy Point will be locked until May 1st however.

Cheers,

Dale

Any word on Keho being free of ice?

Yep, Keho is open now. I went for a few tacks in light wind Thursday and James had a SW session on Saturday night. I even rode Park Lake Friday during the SW40-60km/h when Keho was from the North. It is a tiny lake, wind is shifty and gusty and there is lots of trees on the NE end exit. Not a great place but saves the day.

Stephan,

I let Patrick know that OMD was open at Windy Point.

Dave,

When I used to live near Toronto, alot of the windsurfers used to drive to Hatteras to get their wind fix. I am sure you guys will have a blast.

Keho was wide open as of Friday last week.

Looks like Patrick, Peter and ?? got first on water southern AB at OMD March 30/31.

Stephan opened Park Lake on Friday.

I snuck in 45 mins on Saturday evening at Keho.

Were you riding Thursday? Water is still freakin' cold. Bob, Jessie and I went for an evening session on Monday 14th for the 40-60k. Even with the ice gone, water is barely above freezing point.

I drove down Thursday night. This time of year the water is very cold. I usually go to Maui the last 2 weeks of April so I am not tempted to brave the frigid water. This year I am too busy at work to go to Maui but hopefully next year.
