Soft white sand about 200 yards wide. The beach goes from Astoria Oregon to Seaside Oregon, 22 miles in total. Cars are allowed on the beach so you can have your friend follow you on a downwinder. Or, park one car down wind, drive up the beach, unpack your gear from your car. The beaches are beautiful and empty. Everyone up here hates the wind, so there is no one on the sunny, but windy, sand. There are a few entries, Sunset beach drive being the best. It is possible to do a downwinder from the Iredale boatwreck (found inside Fort Stevens park) all the way to downtown Seaside.

Extra information

Rules
None

Say hello to the local kiters. The scene is growing here with transplants from the Gorge realizing this is better than the Gorge. Be courteous, launch downwind of the locals. But definitely introduce yourself to them. They are a wealth of knowledge for the area and all of them are friendly. Great for downwinders!
