Well those Twin-tippers/ free style riders that don't do this downwinder just might change their minds as the area just recently installed its own organic "Slider Project"/ramp feature to conduct tricks upon and off of.

Be sure to check out the youtube link within the story. . .
If you have never watched the 1970's youtube news clip of the sperm whale that was blown up with a 1/2 ton of dynamite you're in for a treat. The sound of blasted whale blubber falling from the sky and hitting the beach sounds just like a hard rain at the coast; except it probably didn't smell as fresh and clean like after a strong Spring rain. It is worth the time it takes to watch the vid; pretty funny news story and what a stupid idea in hindsight.

Here's to a great upcoming season! Good times and winds to all.

I saw that clip years before I moved to Oregon. It was my first impression, really. Pretty accurate. Haha.

I kited Sunset to the Jetty two days last week and saw this whale. I considered jumping over it. It's as tall as a small sedan.

Can anyone get to Shipwrecks tomorrow? I can be there by 4 and it gets dark at 7:30!!!!!!!!!

Good forecast.
