Generally known for it's very high wave quality, Oceanside is rapidly becoming a popular surfsailing spot for Portland and Gorge surfsailors. A demanding breakzone due to a lack of swell protection from the north, the beachbreak here is notorious for destroying gear. Not a place for intermediate wavesailors, the reward for getting outside is a very clean right to left wave excellent for smacking the lip. Sailed on N and NW winds, conditions are generally a little lighter than at Manzanita by approximately 5 mph and winds in the breakzone can be tough to neogotiate. Once again, this spot is best suited for advanced to expert wavesailors on any swell running over 6 ft. A 2nd (less popular due to shifty winds) launch site exists at the state park in town at the end of Maxwell Ave. This sensor also indicates wind strength in Netarts Bay which is more suited to intermediate level sailors working on their jibes. Parking at Oceanside is limited, there are signs posted right near the main launch - make sure to follow the instructions or your car will be towed. Be respectful of nearby local landowners or this prime sailing venue may experience further restrictions in the future. Excellent surfing potential also exists just south of Oceanside at Cape Lookout. A 2 mile trail to the water will lead to some legendary rights at swells running over 8 ft. Cape Kiwanda, several more miles to the south, hosts better surfing conditions on smaller swells. Local Expert? edit Edit this Page!

From Portland, drive west on HWY 26 through Hillsboro and start looking for the HWY 6 junction towards Tillamook. Once on HWY 6, continue approximately another 45 miles into Tillamook. From Tillamook, head briefly south on HWY 101 then turn right (west) on Netarts HWY W and follow the signs into Netarts. Continue through Netarts on the same road out to the town of Oceanside. Main launch is located on the left hand side of HWY 101 as you pull into town. Parking is limited, you will get towed if you block access.

This sensor is located at the Oceanside Inn which sits directly on the beach between the two main windsurfing launches. The Oceanside Inn (1-800-347-2972) is located on Pacific Ave and is an excellent place to stay after a long day of sailing. The position of this particular sensor is at the top of a large cliff. It is also closer to wind blocking northern headland than the actual sailing zone. Additional experience w/ this sensor and its output suggest that the gust value is a more accurate indicator of wind in the breakzone.
