With your sail size and weight criteria, maybe you should look at a
slightly smaller board for the Gorge...
I've parked a few Exocet Original Wave 75's (and OWave 85's) there and
the owners are very stoked with them...Jay Halford who posts here is one
of them...and just sent an Oregon Coast/Gorge sailor the new ExoWave 75
Pro...under 13lbs...very user friendly , plug & play, comfortable
