Hood River, The Gorge and Columbia River Live Wind and Kite Webcams

June, 2014   //   by Chase Hasch   

The Columbia River Gorge is known around the world by wind sport fanatics for its strong winds.

Why is it so windy in the Columbia River Gorge?
“The wind is generated by cold air and cold water on the Oregon coast which literally sucks the hot air from the Eastern Oregon desert through a 80+ mile canyon known as the Columbia River Gorge. The higher the pressure difference – the stronger the wind.”

The wind speeds can very drastically within a few miles – just around the next corner for that matter – when driving along the Columbia River to find wind. A great way to start your day is in the town of Hood River. You will find plenty of small Cafe’s and all local kite shops usually prepare a little weather report for the day. Local knowledge is absolute necessary to get the best out of your day.
