Saw three guys picking up gear east of Celilo in the gorge on Saturday. This corner is known for big gusts and they were looking off into the water of the Columbia. In their hands were a couple of masts and what caught my eye about 100 feet off land a board in a board bag floating board side up.

Did you guys recover the board? I wish my camera was ready because it was a great moment in gorge driving history (even beats the semi-truck tipped over from wind coming back from Arlington). Windsurfing mag should run a story on that one. We lost skis near Maryhill coming back from Anthony lakes a few years back due to rack failure driving into a 40 mph wind. It was blowing 30 yesterday and boards have a larger surface area making it an easier target for launches.

Hope you got the board back...

The board has 8 lives left, there wasn't even a scratch on it. When it flew off of the car it went straight into the river without touching ground. I ended up having to borrow my buddy's board and sailed to the other side of the river and dragged the board back.

I sailed the board the next day at the hatch.

Never trust your buddy when he says that his bungy cords work fine and he uses them all of the time.

Too bad there weren't pictures to prove it.
