The quintessential Gorge conditions... Not so much so though that I was blown off the water. Held in there for a good hour and a half the first session, of course a portion of that was adjusting gear and mindset for big winds... then a short second session when Bill arrived. I was just surviving...did make some jibes and landed some unintended jumps. Felt too overpowered for any swell riding, maybe next time. Would have been a 10 if Mike were there.
