It's that time of year that my mind starts wandering to windsurfing. Watching videos online and longing for the sailing season. Checking Craigslist for new gear, even though I have too much already.

Help me out and post a link to your favorite Gorge video to pass the time. I'll start with this one I stumbled on many months ago.

Don't know this fella but he sure can ride the swell! I think this video is one of the best for showing how big and dynamic the terrain is in the Gorge on a big day.

Bruce Keller gets my nomination for the "Smoothest on the Swell" Oscar.

Great job editing. Let's hope this late precip push doesn't shut down that stretch of river for most of the spring this year.

Well, I thought I had seen every Gorge Windsurfing video on YouTube, but those three are new to me. Very nice. Thanks for posting.

Here's another nice one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG-1S0BAP2E
Really shows the speed and air time you can get sailing in the Gorge.

Not youtube but still a bunch of Gorge videos I have shot through the years.

https://windnotes.smugmug.com/1-Videos-WindsurfKite

I also have a long spoof war video I created during the years when the issues between some kiters and some windsurfers was at its peak. It was meant to be humorous but...

I never posted it because of the increased frequency of real shootings. It just seemed in questionable taste. And it also might have offended the humor challenged.

Below are some images from that video.

Those vids are really great! Some of the best close-up action. You must have an amazing zoom lens.
Bonus: I'm a big fan of Pat Benatar's guitarist (Hatchery video).

I haven't watched them all yet, but I will.

Thanks for posting

Forgot to mention: That's one of the best body drags I've seen at the 5:25 mark of the 2nd video at the Hatchery.

The Gorge . . . Cooked!
At about the 0:40 mark I saw something I have never seen before - Dale Cook losing control mid-air. Nice to see that even he doesn't nail them all.

Great vids!
