C-FDYF, a privately registered amateur-built Murphy Elite on amphibious floats, took off from Runway 25 at Vancouver / Boundary Bay, BC (CZBB) for a local flight. The aircraft became airborne early and a gust of wind drifted the aircraft left until the left float contacted the ground.
The aircraft cartwheeled and came to rest to the left of the runway.
The pilot was not injured but the aircraft was substantially damaged.
