The sun is out and the winds are strong along the banks of Hood River, and that combination has brought hundreds of kiteboarders and windsurfers to the Columbia shores. Clad in wet suits, these aqua enthusiasts took to the choppy waters from sunrise to sunset, massing along the beach and the river, as seen in the above collage. If the weather keeps the sun and wind combo, expect these crowds all summer long.
