I will be in Portland July 26-31 and would love to check out the gorge. Im an advanced beginner...confindent high wind water starts and okay at pointing, but no jibes or ramps for me. Is there somewhere with a pretty easy launch and lighter currents? Where should I rent gear?

Thanks for the feedback,

austinroach

I like Big Winds on Front St Hood River. You can launch at the Event site right there.

Contact acacarol@aol.com to order a copy of their free Gorge Guide. Itll answer all your questions. Yes, there are PLENTY of places and days for rank beginners, let alone people who can water start.

Oops ... I just noticed your dates. Never mind. Hope you had a good trip.
