Where do you icesail?
I'll be switching from liquid water windsurfing (Ianovated wetsuit still makes it happen Smile ) to ice wing sailing soon as the local lakes are about to freeze over soon. Also in the process of prepping. Should get a pair of used straight GS skis this week. Smile

I live north of Montreal, Quebec, Canada

In the past I have icesailed on the local river (5 minutes away),
parts of the St.Lawrence (Lac St-Louis & Lac Deux Montagnes).
But the BEST is when the lake up north freezes.

Here's a clip from December 2020/last winter.

(better to keep sound OFF)

When I anticipate high speeds, I do NOT film, as I need to concentrate.
Broke my left shoulder during my first year trials on ice.
ENJOY WINTER and BE CAREFUL !!!
