Glide Guide: Haida Gwaii, Queen Charlotte Islands, Canada

Submitted by Vanessa Wahl

Put-In: Wiggins Road Beach Access (Near Tlell)

Takeout: Jungle Beach

Time: 1.5-3 hours

Wind Direction: NW

About the Run: This run moves south along the east coast of the island. Put in at Wiggins Road beach access, where you’ll find a nice, sandy entry at any tide. Northwest winds are predominant in the spring to summer months heading toward Jungle Beach – approximately 10.5 miles (25km). It’s rainy here by luckily a NW wind also brings sunshine.

The wind can be predicted as one thing and change very quickly in this neck of the woods; looking at the water is most beneficial! There are no major navigational concerns or currents but be aware of tides. An occasional sea lion may come visit. Don’t worry, they’re friendly.

You can rent boards in Masset from North Beach Surf Shop. They have about six SUPs to rent, all around 11 feet.
