We spent a couple days at Astoria and contacted two paragliding instructors from this area (Brad & Maren from Discover Paragliding) that we met in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, the winds were not cooperating (too strong, too gusty and wrong direction) so we didn't get to do any kiting or flying. We did however, watch them do a couple tandem tow flights on the beach before the wind picked up and they had to stop.
Continuing to meander along the coast, we stopped often to walk on the beach, stick our feet in the extremely cold water and check out other possible kiting/soaring sites.
