Gorge Wing launches

Postby slowboat » Thu Jun 18, 2020 7:29 pm

Since winging is not limited to traditional kite launches, I was wondering if there are any favorite wing launches at the Gorge. Also sites with solid exit points for a friend who is not going upwind consistently.

All the regular windsurf launches, essentially.

The hook to the event site is an easy short practice downwinder. There's enough current running on the north side of the river that you can stay upwind by just sitting on your board and letting the current carry you west.
