Hi Gang,

Regionally this is off topic since the video is about the Gorge but the message applies anywhere:

To see the video go to: http://windnotes.phanfare.com/ Then click on the "Videos" link and then on "Windsurfing Canceled video" link.

Recently I was struck by some of the anti-kiteboarding comments on the iwindsurf.com forums. While at the same time there were comments on the ikitesurf.com forum like "windsurfing has been canceled" etc.

By coincidence several days later I was at the Hatchery in the Gorge on a good, but not epic day, and saw windsurfers, kiterboarders, kayakers, SUPers, outrigger canoeist, jet skiers, fishing boats and sail boats all jammed into the same waters and all having fun with not a trace of the "forum attitude" Everyone on the water, especially the kiters whose heads were swiveling about non stop, went out of their way to make space for others in the chaos of the Hatchery. Maybe it was etiquette in action or perhaps just a survival instinct. Either way it was nice to see.

Invariably there are going to conflicts between kiters and windsurfers due to the different capabilities of their craft. But I think we all have to remember that in radical conditions we are all trying to perfect our skills and having fun so mistakes will be made. Let's ignore those few who use isolated conflicts to attack a whole sport. There are better ways to build your ego……like ripping!

So enjoy this video showing "true" water people on all type of watercraft.......RIPPING!!!!
