World Class Windsurfing and Kiteboarding

20100711193845__mg_8765_7-12-10[1]From Swell City to Doug’s Beach and beyond, the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge is internationally known for its expert level windsurfing and kiteboarding.

All summer long the high level athletes avoid the Hood River training grounds to challenge the wind and waves that have made this area an international destination.

When the wind dies, as it does occasionally, there are also abundant opportunities and locales for flatwater sports on the Columbia River and adjacent estuaries, including  stand-up paddleboarding, and sailboating.

Then in the after hours there are plenty of places to chill over great food and drinks after a hard day of play.So come enjoy the excitement of our great winds and clean, clear waters nestled in the midst of some of the world’s most beautiful scenery.
