Check out the wind archive for floras lake in may, look's pretty good for past 4 years. Maybe we should go check it out! Day 1: leave early arrive big lagoon crescent city for flat water & wave session. Day 2: Head up the coast surely stopping along the way for a session-lot's of possibility's, arive floras lake. Day 3:Floras Lake & Ocean Breaks!! From bandon to floras lake downwinder 7 nm, Fun!! Party!! Day 4: Whatever we'll be cruising! Day 5: Head back down the coast. Not set on those dates, but they look good! Passenger Van's & Car pooling, bring camping gear!!

I'm so down. Been wanting to kite this place and could use a good road trip. Plenty of camping gear.

If you havent been there yet, just know that it is very small!!! You get 4 or 5 kites on the water at the far end its crowded........but great flat water.....the ocean seemed like a hard beach break (i didnt venture out there...) this was June about 6-7 years ago....it may have changed some since then...it was mostly windsurfers making the short reach back and forth...... have a great time..........we did..Deb
