Windsurfing on the Southern Oregon Coast
Gold Beach

WindsurfingFloras Lake is only one of several sweet locations to surf on the South Coast.  The South Coast’s warm afternoon thermals, stiff north winds and enticing clear summer skies make it an ideal setting for wind sports, both on the ocean and on lakes.

Perhaps one of the best aspects of Oregon Coast windsurfing is that it also affords great gawking from the road. On a windy day the spectators at Pistol River can equal the number of surfers in the water. The South Coast is known as Oregon’s Banana Belt because of its uncharacteristically warm temps. Its strikingly beautiful scenery doesn’t hurt the eyes either. One can easily spend hours at the wayside vicariously surfing the waves while sipping on a Gold Beach latte. Summer can’t get any better than this. Read Portland Examiner Article
