Can't believe its still blowing... PDX was pretty gusty but rideable on 12-13m.

Anyone hit the Rock?

This guy hit the rock, but what happened to the launch??? Had to get a couple of friends to throw me up off of an old boat launch down river from the normal spot. It was super sketch, so i just put up the 9, but probably would have been alright on a 12. Nothing special on the water...really makes you realize how nice westerlies with the opposite current are!

Anyone else out there Nate? What about launching from the stairway?

I'm thinking lunch time session at the airport today.... Very Happy

Nah, i was the only kiter on the water. There were a few pole boarders out, and they were using the stairs. I kinda wanted to stay outta their way, in case shit really hit the fan. The wind was pretty north easterly, and that old boat launch gave a better angle to the wind anyway
