Indian Beach Weekend Surf?

  • March 9, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Hi everyone --- I've been going out at Indian Beach/Ecola nearly every weekend for a few months, and sometimes on Wednesdays as well. I'm just wondering if anyone else has been doing the same. I'm still learning but have progressed a lot the last few weeks (standing up more and more!). Anyway, would love to know if anyone else out there is from this group, or from Portland. It'd be fun to know someone else in the water, and maybe share a conversation and a bottled water in between sessions. Or build a fire and eat lunch on the beach. So, just testin' the waters here. And if anyone is a beginner, and you haven't been to Indian Beach, I can tell you that it is not intimidating, a perfect place to learn, and there are usually plenty of both guys and gals in the water learning too.

    I was there ... I agree ... a beautiful day. I didn't get in the water but enjoyed the day thoroughly.
    Like Jodie, I didn't meet anyone from the group although I may have walked right by many.
    I'm up for Short Sands at some future date ...

      Next time let's pick a place to meet. I posted a meet up at short sands. Waiting for a day with ok conditions to post a date.

    The weather was sunny all day and the waves in the morning were glassy.

  • Jeff B.

    Awesome.. I will probably be at Indian by 11:00am.

    I'll go to Indian beach, I've never surfed there, so something new. What time are you all planning on being there?

    March 8, 2013

  • Patti W.

    I really wanna go am just a little worried I might be cold in my 3/4 wetsuit...

    March 8, 2013

  • John T.

    Is it still Indian ? Shorties is right down the road about 20 minutes so whatever it is it is fine with me and it will be a lot better than the surf in Portland.
    Will change in the AM to see if anything changed overnight.

  • Jeff B.

    Weather and conditions looking good for tomorrow. Indian Beach is where I'll be unless it looks like people would rather go to Sands.

    March 8, 2013

  • Jodiez

    should we pick a place to meet like a store lot in Beaverton off the 26 and then we can pile in different cars or decide a meet up point from there? Anyone in?

    March 8, 2013

  • Jodiez

    I'm planning on surfing tomorrow. If anyone wants to carpool or meet up at a spot. It's looking pretty gorgeous outside!!!

    Already got my ride fixed... Any word on if Short Sands will replace Indian. I see Indian for the weekend surf but Short rocks. Conditions are still looking good for the weekend.. Long boarding.

    Hey Jeff, It looks nice his Saturday. unfortunately, I can't make it this Saturday, as i have an obligation Saturday for the next three weeks (till the 23rd). But after that, I'll definitely be interested in meeting up for a surf session. Let me know if you or anyone else end up going. It's always good to have someone else you know in the water. :)

    This weekend looks good. Sunny. Periods around 13 and 14 seconds with ht around 3 to 8 depending. Winds should be on the light side also. Not sure what the 10:09 am high tide will cause but I'm thinking I want to be in the water by noon on the 9th. I see above there is a "suggest a date and time".I have never done that before but I'll fill in Sat 9th.

  • Jeff B.

    Excuse me. Indian Beach...

    February 24, 2013

  • Jeff B.

    I'm thinking about Sat 2nd but maybe Sun the 3rd if it lightens up a bit. Short Sands and catch the low tide. I'm not an early riser so maybe be there by 11:00ish. It's been almost a year since I've been out. This will be more of a stretch and breather for me. These days I play teeter totter on my belly on the long board.. LOL

  • Jessica L.

    I'm up for surfing and carpooling. Does anyone recommend a place to rent cheap boards and a wetsuit?

    February 8, 2013

    • Jessica L.

      Thanks for the tip! $35 seems to be the going rate.

      February 10, 2013

    • Jeff B.

      Yes. Cleanline is very helpful. They also have a great lay away plan on board sales.

      February 24, 2013

  • Amy Y.

    is anyone going on the 25th?

    February 17, 2013

  • Chad

    Next Saturday looks great if anyone wants to carpool with Martin & I

    Hey everyone...my friend and I have been going surfing pretty much every weekend in all seasons. We are interested in finding another surfer in Portland that would be interested in carpooling. We usually leave pretty early and surf 2 or 3 hours. If anyone would like to join our carpool, let me know.

    Thanks!

    I'm planning on going to Indian Beach early Sunday morning...leaving from Portland around 6:30am and at the beach at 8:00am. If that works for anyone, let me know.

    This sounds great! Weekends are busy this Summer so I hope to get in on at least one or two. Is there a particular weekend that is firming up? Also, would anyone like to meet-up on a Monday? I am always busy on Thur. nights.

    Yeah, it seems to have enough space for all levels of riders. The cove is beautiful!

    July 6, 2012

  • Dan M.

    I just surfed Indian Beach last sunday for the first time. It is a very cool place to learn. It seems like it would be fun for the more advanced riders as well. I love the little cove atmosphere and would definitely be game to surf it again.
