Just returned from a stellar gorge trip. I mostly kited in the corridor but also had a great days at Roosevelt and back at Stevenson. Stevenson is a trip. It's a total twintip unhooked freestyle scene. The best trick is launching by jumping off the grassy bluff about 20 feet off the water. Some of the best swell on big days was at the White Salmon bridge. There is a new sand bar after a dam was breached up the White Salmon river. The waves really clean up on the down wind side of the sand bar. The coast set up for the first northwesterlies of the summer and it was perfect. The wind was steady 9m, water was warm( for the Oregon coast) and the waves were a very managable 3 to 4 feet. Good fun! Oh and if you think we have some sketchy safety issues spend and an hour watching people launch at the Event Site. I have never seen anything so totally out of control. Kites in trees, a guy drug across a rock jetty, people just flying onto the beach dropping there kites all over the place. Anyways the summer is on in the great northwest and there are lots of Utah crew out and about. Go get it!
