Intro

The casino mobile Canada site is a natural place to turn to if you want the best information and advice about the things you like in life. No matter what helps you to have fun, be it casino games or windsurfing, make sure you find out as much information about the activity as you possibly can.

Welcome to the official web site of the Barrie Windsurfing Association.

Our mission is to promote windsurfing and represent the interests of windsurfers in our area. Most of all, we want to make sure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable windsurfing experience.

Visit us! We’re located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Join in the fun and enjoy the company of sailors from all over the Barrie, Midland, Collingwood and Toronto areas.

There is no designated club time at Minets – if the wind is blowing, we’ll be there!

We changed our name in 1999 from the Barrie Windriders and that may produce some confusion for those arriving here from outdated links. Never fear, we’re the same friendly folks at the same great windsurfing beach.

Beginners are always welcome and the cordial atmosphere means that the beginner will easily be able to find a helping hand.

Minets Point Park is on the south shore of Kempenfelt Bay (Lake Simcoe) and we enjoy paved parking, a grass rigging area and a brick wash/change room.

Also, you’re more than welcome to visit online-slots-canada.ca and make a donation if you’d like to see us continue doing what we do.

Come on out and join us! We hope to see you on the water.

Angulo and Daida – winners!

Wavesailing NEWS

Josh Angulo wins the Jeep Hawaii Pro. Daida Moreno (Mistral, North) wins the Women’s contest in a day of action from the world’s best, and the crowds even got some sun!

Kevin Pritchard (Starboard, Maui Sails) started off well today with a one-footed, one handed back loop which saw him through to the next round beating Kai Katchadorian (Quatro International). Francisco Porcella also had a good start as he is the push loop king and although Yann Quilfen (North) had some decent rides, it was Porcella that got through to meet Goya in the next round.

Scott McKercher, (Starboard, Severne) who did beat Boujamaa Guilloul (Starboard, Severne) yesterday (apologies for that), just couldn’t match the Spanish wave 360 master that is Alex Mussolini (Neilpryde, JP) and the Aussie bowed out early. But Mussolini (JP, Neil Pryde) was the man of the morning session as he kept busting out one-handed aerials, a goita back onto the wave and numerous ‘arched back’ bakkies and push loops. This got him past McKercher, Shelef and Goya before he lost to Jason Polakow (Nielpryde,JP). Not bad for the young man and surely a future winner of this contest.

So the competition continued and the heat draw just got more and more exciting. Kevin Pritchard .v. Levi Siver (Starbaord) was a classic. Kevin was ahead with a wave 360 and slick rides but then Levi did the highest, cleanest wave 360 of the day plus a goita on the wave. Even Kevin’s last minute taka wasn’t enough and Levi was through to the last 6.

In the same heat we had Alex Mussolini .v. Francisco Goya. This was close, real close but again Alex was more ‘tricky’ on the wave. Goya did pull off a slick wave 360 and also accidentally collided with Alex just in front of the Hookipa rocks, but this didn’t put Alex off his stride and he won the heat.

THE LAST SIX

Finally Matt Pritchard (Tabou, Gaastra) and Jason Polakow had to get their hair wet and compete against the sailors who had battled through the double elimination in order to knock these guys out! However, that’s not how Matt & Jason wanted the story to end.

Polakow did a huge, one-handed push loop and the most tweaked aerial of the day to end Mussolini’s fantastic run. Matt was just on fire: pushloops, backloops, goita on the wave face, wave 360….etc Levi sure did sail well but just couldn’t match the consistency of Matt and the Pritchard revenge for Kevin’s loss was complete!

Anyone looking for the best range of slots, should visit the http://www.slots-online.ca site. This is the perfect place to head to if you are interested in having fun and want the best range of casino games. You can have a lot of fun surfing and this is true for windsurfing or internet surfing.

THE LAST FOUR

By this stage Josh Angulo and Kauli Seadi (Quatro International, Naish) were getting a bit anxious and they both went out for practise sails in between heats and then they would come in to see who was left in the draw and who they would consequently have to beat.

Kauli watched intently from the beach as Matt Pritchard and Jason Polakow battled it out for a place against the Brazilian.

Polakow started off with a huge push loop, Pritchard responded on the wave behind with an even bigger push loop. Matt seemed to be ahead on waves early on with a wave 360 in the long 15 minute heat. Jason knew time was running out and the whole beach was ‘calling’ a wave 360 on his final wave. Sure enough Jason pulled it out of the bag to the delight of the cliff top crowds. But Matt had already wracked up the points and he was absolutely stoked to beat Mr.Polakow at Hookipa!

So it was Kauli Seadi .v. Matt Pritchard to decide who would face Josh Angulo in the final. Kauli (Quatro, Naish) had more tricks up his sleeve and pulled off a few goitas and his more ‘slashy’ style on the waves certainly impressed the judges. Matt looked tired and seemed to have run out of steam. He did all he could but it wasn’t enough. However third place at the Jeep Hawaii Pro is pretty darn good and we think Matt was suitably stoked with that result!

THE LAST TWO

So it was the 22 year old, new school Brazilian .v. the 30 year old wave legend that is Josh Angulo. Would it be time for the younger guys to take centre stage and a new era to begin? ….not quite yet!

Josh Angulo stepped up to the mark and produced the beat sailing of the contest just when it mattered. For starters, he did the best one-handed aerial of the day then a sick one-handed back loop then a wave 360 and a one-handed push loop. Kauli tried everything: a goita which he made but not on the wave and a flaka down the wave face were his best offerings. He also knew he was in need of a high jump score and again the crowds ‘called’ a double. It would have taken a very clean double to beat Josh on jumps and Kauli didn’t quite land it. Never mind, he thought, I’ll try again! This time he let go through the second rotation and it was game over.

An hour later and Josh Angulo was spraying champagne all over the crowds as he was pronounced the Jeep Hawaii Pro Champion!!

New Route to Hatteras

by Hans Held

This route seems farther to drive — but it’s not actually — it’s about the same distance.  Sure, it takes longer, but it’s much less hectic and lets you stop and smell the Wysteria along the way.  Now, if that’s not your style of driving and you just want to burn it to Hatteras .. don’t follow this route.

Take the QEW to Fort Erie/Buffalo –
In Buffalo,
Take I90 East to Rochester

Stop in Bath – just to look around!

Take I390 South to Painted Post and sStop in Bath on your way – just to look around!   Watch the speed limit here, New York cops are invisible.

The road changes from I390 to I17 and then I15
Watch for I15 South and take it to Williamsport

Stay on I15 South thru Lewisburg and follow the river.  Just before you get to Harrisburg, take the I22/322 East across the river, to Harrisburg

In Harrisburg, take I81 West to Hagerstown and then Winchester

Stay on I81 West to Winchester, then take I81 South thru to Staunton

Then take I64 East to Richmond — go around using the loop I295

Take I64 East to Hampton, Norfolk

In Hampton, take 664 to Chesapeake, then #168 South

It turns into #158 South just after Nags Head Follow #12 South to Avon.

Just a few rules of thumb.
In general, you can go around cities using the loop highways .. they’re always named either 4xx or 2xx where the xx is usually the same number as the one you’re driving on .. that is .. to get around Richmond if you’re on I95, take 295 and so on.

First …. If you think you are lost, you probably are. Stop a the next interchange, get out the map, and check directions.  Watch for road signs!

Second…. Don’t get in a hurry and start driving like a madman (woman!).

And this should be rule #1.
Don’t hog the passing lane – move over when you’re done passing!  If you are not going faster than the car beside you in the slow lane – MOVE OVER!
