    ^^^ do you do any sea kayaking? I have been really wanting to come up and do some sea kayaking in that area.

    With all the sun and melt off, rivers where raging again yesterday. Stopped for a mintue and watched the fun on boulder drop(class iv on the skykomish) just a few minutes from my place.

    A summer must for me…. 1 or 2 MLB games. Love the atmosphere and everything.

    I try to hit Boulder Drop a few times every season, It’s one of my favorite places for a swim 😉 .
    I really should get a sea kayak but I’m trying not to let my boat quiver get as big as my snowboard quiver. right now I have 5 boats (creek boat, play boat, single IK, tandem IK, and a 14′ self bailing raft) and would like to add a cat to the bunch but a sea kayak would make more sense since I live on an island. I use the IKs around here if I feel like paddling, not the fastest boats but fun for playing around. I have paddled my creekboat to Anacortes (5 miles open water) but it’s not recommended, an 8′ boat starts to feel real small in all that water.
    I get lots of tankers coming by here and they leave a perfect wave about 4′ high that just keeps breaking until it finds a beach or rocks to stop it. These make perfect waves for kayak surfing, I paddle my playboat out when they pass and wait for the waves. once your on one you can ride it for several hundred yards or more. I heard of a couple guys in the Gulf of Mexico who do this with boards but run out with a boat to get out.

    I just picked up a used windsurfer 😀

    Hopefully I won’t feel like such a fish out of water now …

    I’m going on 7 years of being a land-locked surfer/sailor and sometimes, during the summer months, I wonder WTF I’m doing in Utah. Then winter rolls around again 8)

    Are any of you Utards windsurfers?

    Oh yeah, I’m not done splitboarding/booting quite yet.

    I’ve been gone too long. My favorite pasttimes include–rafting,usually starting in March and going til the water starts to drop. Then its time to bike (downhill) and get my huck on in the dirt.

    Geez Karkis…you’ve got quite the dealer there!!

    Me..i’ve been surfing a ton. The swell has been pretty solid this summer. Keeping the TAY steak alive though…just not in an aggressive way

    I’ve been working for the man and it’s bringing me down. But I have been riding my mtn. bike and I’ve been surfing and I have a dirtbike and I went to Mt. Adams. I guess that’s pretty fun. Okay I feel better.

    Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

    I hear that – time for a vacation. In the summer, I get in some riding (TAY), rock climbing and some backcountry bowhunting (September). Also some hikes with my wife and a little fishing.

    Mtbing and camping with the fam. My 5 year old is itching to go fishing so we’re going to catch her first trout tomorrow. I really need a beach vacation too. I think we’re going to go to Cambria for a few night in Sept.

    Hey Kyle,

    Here’s a link for a TR on CC with conditions. Hope it helps. If you’re ever looking for another to climb with let me know as my schedule is flexible and can’t always get out with the wife. Like this weekend actually.

    Hm, I think you forgot the link 🙂

    We’re actually doing the West Ridge this weekend, but I’m no without a climbing partner for two weekends from now, the 23-24. I was thinking perhaps Luna Peak, or something down by Cascade Pass. If you’re interested, let me know.

    Sorry about that: http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/820934#Post820934

    My wife is out of town the 23-24 so that may work out. I’ll be in touch and let you know.
