"Atmospheric pressure differentials east and west of the Cascades create a wind tunnel effect in the deep cut of the gorge, generating 35 mph (56 km/h) winds that make it a popular windsurfing and kiteboarding location.

The gorge also contains a high concentration of waterfalls, with over 90 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the gorge alone.<2> Many are along the Historic Columbia River Highway, including the notable 620-foot (190 m)-high Multnomah Falls."

 

Not especially tidal. {#Snooty}

how come you get such a short sea with wind coming from behind the waves like that? Is the tide going out?

Maybe. Maybe like skiing. Some have stuck with it. Some have moved to snowboarding. Some do both. 

I'm a big day sailor, which (around here) means there are a lot of windy (but less windy) days left for kiteboarding, which can be fun in less wind. If I could just come up with the time and money for gear I might take it up. But I seem to be trending toward less of both.

I've seen that one and others. Two people, not good friends, but folks I met once or twice, are now dead because of kiteboarding. It was horribly tragic for both families. 

The gear is getting safer, but it's still riskier than windsurfing. I'm not sure I'll ever take it up.

Wow...it sounds challenging, but I'll bet people get used to it in no time...and I'll bet it feels unbelieavably exciting to catch the wind like that.

The main difference between how you stay connected to a snowboard and how you stay connected to a sailboard is that on a snowboard you strap yourself in and stand the same way at all times. On a sailboard you will sometimes have your right foot forward, and sometimes have your left foot forward. You slide your feet into the straps when you need to be securely attached, and slip your feet out and walk around the board like you might on a surfboard when changing direction or doing some tricks. You push your feet firmly into the straps when jumping.
