Surfing on a lake in Oregon

Postby luke11 » Thu May 02, 2013 2:48 pm

These are some photos from a few days ago while kite surfing in the Columbia River Gorge. This section of the river has dams on each end and is technically Lake Celilo, which is 45 miles east of Hood River. The lake is 25 miles long by 1 mile wide. This section of The Gorge gets very good wind and has great waves for riding. Enjoy.
