Oregon Beach Activities

Oregon coast is a great place in the United States to enjoy some local sports activities with your family the next vacation you have. There are three here for you to look into for free any time of the year. Since the temperatures are temperate all year round, you can spend your time in the spring, summer fall or winter on the Oregon beaches.

Oregon is a western state located between Washington and California in the United States of America. Because it borders on the Pacific Ocean on one side the beaches are abundant and so are the activities for everyone, at any age. Here are three for you to enjoy when your family and you wish to enjoy some water sports for free.

One of the best things about Oregon beaches is that they are not owned by the rich and famous and are available to anyone as long as local ordinances are followed. One such rule is to keep dogs leashed and pick up their excreta when they expell that. For that reason most of the Oregon beaches are clean and appreciated by visitors on vacation.

Wind surfing is not only done in the atmosphere, but on the Oregon beaches as well. One activitiy is with a kite like cart with a seat that permits the person to scoot along the moist sand as the waves trickle in and out. The sail or sails are used to steer the beach vehicle as the breezes continue to move it around with a smooth movement.This device rarely leaves the ground and when it does it does not remain airborne for long before it drops down to the three or four wheels it has touching the sand.

Tidepooling is a planned oceanside event depending on the tide. When the tide is going out the plans for viewing sea life should be scheduled. Since Oregon permits people access to the beaches this can be done for free. It is truly suggested to educate oneself to the urchins and other water life prior to just going to the seashore to be able to know what it is that is there. Caution should be exercised for both the human and the sea life. The rocks where people stand to examine all the creatures become very slippery because of the sea salt and seaweed. Proper attire is required for safety in standing and walking. Some sea life will die if touched or disturbed so it is highly recommended to look, take pictures and never touch what you see.

Beach combing might sound boring until you have been to an Oregon coast beach. Go early in the morning for driftwood and items that might have drifted in from foreign countries. Most recently a part of a Japanese bridge made it's way to Newport, Oregon beach. You will be pleasantly surprised to see glass fishing balls, ship parts and amazing other items. Agates are plentiful on the shores of Oregon, but mainly in the middle of the state in Waldport, Yachats and Newport.

I went there as a kid, since my father was a zoologist we always enjoyed looking at tidal pools and such.
