Personally I think a 17m will be too much kite for either Sat or Sun. But one thing is for sure. If you go out, you'll need to be extra powered to deal with the predicted 19'sw swell for Sunday.

I just did 3 days of ocean/wave sailing last weekend up at gearheart/seaside. Waves sure are fun! Have fun out there.

Ya, I deserved a good laugh after looking at Sunday's forecast for 30knts as well... Shocked

Maybe I will just pick up some trash and give the 3m/mtn board some work in the lulls...

What about easterlies in the Gorge? Mclean says rain but I've never seen it rain at Rooster Rock on an east wind day...

Yeah it looks like deadly winds and waves out there... We were driving home last night across the Fremont bridge just trying to keep the car on the road it was so windy.

It's got to be wrong but right now the IWindsurf Cape Blanco sensor is reading avg 63mph winds gusts to 77! Shocked
