Squamish means "Mother of the Wind" in the local Coast Salish language, and for avid windsurfers, that's nothing but good news.

Wind-Surfing at the Squamish Spit

Particularly between April and September, windsurfing conditions are optimal due to the consistent southerly thermal winds at the Squamish Spit. Some consider this one of the top-10 windsurfing locations in the world.

Advanced wind-surfers, wearing wetsuits, love to catch air and do tricks at this long breakwater, situated at the mouth of the Squamish River where it flows into Howe Sound. Speeds can exceed 37mph/60 kph. Equipment can be bought or rented at a variety of stores in Vancouver.

The Squamish Spit offers a gorgeous, mountain-ringed setting for spectators. Bring the whole family out to watch, under the supervision of volunteers from the Squamish Windsports Society.
