On the Coast Again!

Saturday morning we decided to leave Hood River and head back to the beach again. Rush hour traffic seemed like it was never going to let us out of Portland, but after 2 hours of sitting through gridlock and an hour of winding through the
mountain pass we finally made it out to Pacific City. We lucked out and scored the last campsite in the whole town, set up camp and headed straight for the local pub, Pelican Pub and Brewery. Stop in if you get a chance, their Tsunami Stout is mighty delicious.
After a little breakfast the next morning and some jam'n on the ukulele, Ray and Luke headed out for a Stand Up session in the small but glassy surf. After swapping boards mid sessions, Luke had to keep up his reputation of destruction by somehow breaking a leash in 3 foot surf. Sweet!

The Oregon coast looks like it's prepared to deliver the goods after the weekend with 30 kt Northerlies and some good wind swell in the forecast. Sounds like a recipe for some epic jumping conditions at The Rock. Stay tuned!



  1. Maui friends are all loving the blog.
    Have fun on the coast.

  2. Hey guys! Great site! I was JUST at the Pelican Pub Brewery first week of June. Did a trip up the coast with my friend in Portland. Say HI when you're down in Orange County! We'll hit up San Onofre. Nikki-Rae
