Hey all!

Does anyone have any experience kiteing Rooster Rock in the summer? What's a good indicater of the winds there? Are the "Natural" sunbathers a problem? What's the best place to set up and launch? Hazards? Thanks!

Summer doesn't happen at rooster. Best to go east or hit jones or the coast.

Some of my best days are at Rooster in the late summer. Very long sandy beach when the water level is low. Typically the best days there are when P-town is warmer then eastern oregon; which is not very often in the summer. But when windy its epic. Although the fall is when Rooster really gets going!

You can use this to check current wind:

or http://nwwind.net/wind.php?st=OR

I heard that on SW wind days in PDX that Rooster can be a West wind day, but Fall and Winter is the "Normal time" for Rooster
