Riding Bumps on Howe Sound
The Miner’s Run Downwind Clinics are an opportunity for you to build your passion for down winding and catching bumps here on Howe Sound. Our run from Porteau Cove to Britannia Beach (once a former mine site) is a perfect playground for those new to downwinding who already have a solid flatwater skill set and want to build confidence and success catching the wind and waves. This clinic is also designed as a great training run for those with a more advanced down winding skill set who would like a coached training session and an opportunity to understand the conditions here on Howe Sound. The Miner’s Run takes you along the stunning coastline between Porteau Cove and past Furry Creek before wrapping up the paddle at Britannia Beach.
