Seems like that would be pretty neat if you could.

If you are going this time of the year ( June-Sept ) and can schedule a extra day or two then it would be worthwhile to rent a car and go south 4 hours to the Gorge where all you'll need to bring is a 9 m and a small board.

I don't think the sound itself gets much wind this time of year, at least not when I've been there in July-Aug.

But I think everybody in seattle goes south for the summer as well

Or

Maybe go North instead Danny

I removed that post. Trying to stay positive. Sorry for leaving you dangling with a disappearing post.

Danny.. I 100% agree w/ Raul... you can drive to Gorge in a matter of a few hours..

Portland is a beautiful town.. lots of stuff to do when the winds settle. Head to Powell's bookstore.. one of the largest book stores in the nation.. amazing place to hang out..

Hood River is also an amazing town... I've never before seen a town that is solely devoted to windsports
