Good monring gorge sports fanatics and happy weekend!

My what a busy day we have today! It’s not windy this morning, and there’s only a 20% chance or so of 17-21 late this afternoon in the corridor. So, it’s on to everything else. First, at 8:30, meet at 10 speed coffee for the Dirty Fingers Ladyfinger, ladies only ride.

For your all day entertainment, come watch the Hood River Super D, Downhill bike race in Post Canyon, or… check out Windfest at the Hood River Event Site, for free windsurf lessons and $5 demos, including stand=up paddle, or there’s Blues, Brews and Barbeque, a music fest, in Stevenson. And finally, at 2:00 today, at the Mosier School, is Interesting Mosier, where a lot of interesting people give very short talks on very interesting subjects. Wow… how am I ever going to do all of those and still stay rested for tomorrow’s wind.

Oh, and don’t forget the Dirty Finger/10 Speed/HR Super D afterparty at Dirty Fingers starting at 4pm and continuing until ???? tonight. Free beer, free footlongs, free f-ing awesome party!

Clouds crowd into Portland tonight, bringing wind. Tomorrow stars with low twenties in the corridor. With strong high pressure off the coast, winds build quickly into the 26-30 range. It’ll be a good day for lessons and demos at Windfest. Kiters, a friendly reminder: it’s a $1000 ticket at the Lyle sandbar. It’s very sad, but very true.

Finally, it’s ripping at the central coast and it’s going to stay that way for the next four days. Today’s swell is small at 4 feet, but tomorrow brings 8 and Monday brings 9.

Whatever you do today, have an awesome day!
