But I am pretty sure that is the east end of RUFUS, not Hood River.

The "mow zone" at Rufus is almost nonexistent, although there are still many smart and competent windsurfers who shred there, to the west side of Rufus. By contrast, the mow zone at the Hatchery is enormous, crowded, geriatric, and most windsurfers there appear to never think of looking upwind for surf-style shredders. Therefore, Rufus is much more conducive to downwind and upwind traffic and quite a bit safer as a consequence than the Hatchery. Also, I find the competency level at Rufus to be far superior. It's a lot less stressful than the Hatchery. What a relief and pleasure it is to shred there! Surf-style rules generally apply.

Bart is right. Learn somewhere else and they donít have ROW. So now what? They must be very comfortable being around a lot of high end wind chasers. You may not get that swell all to yourself anymore. If youíre at the hatchery on the inside youíre in the big time. Canít cut it than get the heck out of there! Itís not like the rest of the river folks. And you get what you get and donít throw a fit😊
