I'll be spending a fair amount of time in Nehalem this winter and spring and was hoping to get some insight on kiting the bay. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

we just kite in the ocean - usually better wind - always fun in the waves no matter how messy

some of the crew mess around in the bay - low tide might be better on a skimboard than foil

respect the inlet - not fun swimming around out there Laughing - wind does weird things going from the north jetty to south jetty

You know the search function works wonders. . . .


That said, PM macgruber, as he is quite versed kiting in the Nehalem Bay, as well as the ocean around there.

Here is a good Manzo post:

I used to windsurf there quite a bit back in the day. Always launched from the public boat ramp on out-going tide with south winds. When everything is lined up, its a good winter break.

Be aware of weather systems coming from the south. Wind can zoom to 40+ in short order. I've also kited there, but migrated to Seaside up around the entrance to the Nacanicum on south winds.
