Regarding the new launch, if history is important to you, "Victor's" is the clear choice. Who else has 35+ wind seasons in the gorge, and this year windsurfed Pistol one day in cataclysmic wave conditions, kited the next and then windsurfed Arlington the day after. Not just one session each day either but up to 3 session a day. Some mixing kiting and windsurfing on the same day. The man is the elder statesman of the wind, and king of the gorge in my book. He's been slaying in the swell and waves literally longer than many of you hav been alive. Put simply, he's a wind sport beast who deserves all of our recognition. I honestly can't think of a guy who gone pedal-to-the-metal, balls out, windsporting for longer and harder than Victor. And he's still got the pedal-to-the-metal. I didn't catch his pep talk before the work party, but I'm certain that it was a doozy and made some of you wonder, what exactly is powering this seemingly nuclear fusion powered beast.

So yeah, call it whatever you want, but I'm calling it Victor's.

First off I love Travis's description of a 'daily' Victor week, and I'm pretty sure the pep-talk at the clean up had some serious references from the Tough Fucker Club.

I agree on the name "Victor's" out of pure sentimentality and appreciation for how much unsung and unrecognized commitment and blood that Victor has contributed to the Gorge that we know and love.

*Admittedly, yes, he is one of my local heroes and I love nothing more than seeing him on the water or the beach and having him remind me of how awesome it is that we get to do what we do here.
And, no matter what it is named, the name "Victor's" is also now what it will mean to me.

Yes! Finally someone with some clout speaks up. Victor deserves a lot more recognition than he gets. I’d also like to nominate him for CGW2’s Most Stoked for next year. There is no one like Victor that has set such a solid foundation of life-long stoke.
Glad we got this beach name thing figured out.
And remember if you don’t want to listen to real harry, then listen to Travis. He’s also
The man oh and Pepi cause He knows what’s up.

VICTORS, about time. Now who’s building the bench?
