- Back from the Oregon coast, kited the Gorge on the way (Lit on a 5m and
my 139 Stonker in 30+ knots. Hit Oceanside (south of Tillamook 11
miles) and found great wind but not so friendly windsurfers. No
incident, but they made it clear that OS was THEIR site, not 4 kiters.
Either way, Manzo served up the right combo of smooth, strong winds and
tasty 3-4 waves to boost off. The afternoon gusts were no joke with
frequent bursts of 40 knots blowing everything but me off the beach.
South of Pacific City at Bob Straub beach is another site that nobody
was kiting at despite a perfect on-shore 20 knot wind all day that
looked promising. All in all, an amazing kite-trip to the Coast that
paid off big-time.
With a month to explore & wait out the notorious Oregon rain the kiting
would be epic.....now it's time to tell the Boss I need another week
