*This annual race is run on Sunday, but set up is on Saturday, maybe Friday as well, and breakdown is Monday. Not sure yet about beach access on Saturday, but will check back.
Sunday this place will be a mad house of families, cars and athletes, so be aware.
During these weekend event closures, the Sandspit and the Marina are the main points of access for kiteboarding via the Hood River Waterfront.
Reminder, that both of these locations are FREE parking.
Fall weather and water levels can be mysterious and unpredictable, so remember to check the water levels and conditions before you launch. Aways remember to launch/land others and have fun!!
