Agree with loosescrew, and add it doesn't freaking snow there, either! Snow's fun to visit, but I sure wouldn't want to live in it, and sure as hell don't want to sail in it!

Maui's got pesky sharks, but we have to deal with the pesky Canadians!

The Gorge is the best placein the world for windsurfing! Fresh water, no sand shifting out from under my feet during entry & exit. I'd rather get bashed by waves in the Gorge than Maui. If its blowing 35-40 I can still get in & out of the water without fear of getting knocked down by big salty waves & undertow. Give me the rocks of the gorge! The wind can be gusty, holey, or solid, but we have great waves to ride & jump. To sail the Gorge often is to love our Gorge. We have salmon & sturgeon, & no sharks. We have snow capped mountains! We can have dawn patrol & don't need to wait til 10 to sail. We have amazing sunset sessions. Maui is fun, but the Gorge ROCKS my world!
