Remembering Steve Gates

Big Winds Hood River recently lost its founder, Steve Gates. Big Winds is one of the two iconic windsurfing shops there and more than a few of us have shopped there even from afar.

Re: Remembering Steve Gates

I was already in a melancholy mood this morning before opening an email (and the email about Steve Gates) that reminded me that today would have been Stephan Els's 47th birthday. One of my best windsurfing sessions ever was with him the day before Thanksgiving.

For those who didn't know Stephan, we lost him unexpectedly in the April of 2016.
