Oregon North Coast Windsurf and Kiting Spots

The North Oregon Coast is exposed to strong NW swells, closer to Portland and more fickle in nature than the Central and South Coasts. That being said, sailing the North Coast is very rewarding. Manzanita can blow 30 knots when most of the region is struggling to reach low 20s. Oceanside will have the best waves. Roads End will be the best bump and jump. The bays provide great options for winter sailing. Most spots are very easy to get to.

The region provides great surfing too: Seaside Cove (south wind protection), Short Sands, Manzanita, Barview, Cape Meares (south wind protection) Oceanside, Cape Lookout (fog & north wind protection),  Pacific City, Neskowin and the Lincoln City area.

The area provides non sailors plenty of activities as well. Kayaking, Stand up paddle, Horseback Riding, Crabbing, Hiking, Sandlake ATVing.
