Windgirl------------great video, but it seems to "hang up" a lot as it plays---------I assume it is not supposed to do that??? It stops every few seconds, audio and action freeze, and then a few seconds later it takes off again-------------just annoying, that's all.

Those guys and gals are REALLY talented, and having fun!!

I love your "Delai Lama" statement-------so true.

It played fine for me, Barry.
Maybe it's your download speed or RAM is too small ?

Nice video but why do they sail with such big sails and boards ? :rolleyes:
I have never seen anything that big in the Gorge !! :lol:
Kinda flat water too, eh ?? :biggrin:
Bring your 2.5/3.0/3.5/4.0 and come see us this summer !! :yes:

Windgrrl,
Thanks for the photos and videos. I find it funny that Diver is poking fun of you when they may have high wind at the gorge they don't have waves! I've sailed there.I've seen it it myself. What they do have is wind swell. If you want waves you gotta be some where when a SWELL hits. I've sailed Los Barriles before. I'm not sure but a macking swell might wrap in there. Heres a good video of WAVE SAILING.

I don't mind being called out, after all, they don't make gear small enough to handle the wind at my home lake. Why, it's so windy, the waves are blown upside down!

We go to the Gorge every year...great place to turn over the old gear and go mountain biking! :P Seriously, I would have to sail a long time before I sail any waves and unlike the Gorge, I can't press the easy button in LB - it's a tough place to sail!

I just love watching my friends sail the wave - it's a happy place where eveyone gets along in a small space.
