The majority of tourists head to Hood River for the sights and sounds, don’t they? Why not stray away from the pack, then? Dare to be different and go there for something extreme.
There are sporting activities in Hood River to challenge even the most diehard daredevils out there. As you can see, as sedate as Hood River’s trees and mountains make the place seem, there’s wild fun and adventure to be had here.
Fans and fanatics of kiteboarding and windsurfing should feel right at home in Hood River. We can go so far as to say it’s one of the best places for sports enthusiasts not just in Oregon, but in the United States itself.
The strong and consistent winds blow over the Columbia River Gorge and provide an atmosphere that’s excellent for all manner of wind sports.
These winds blow from May to September, so be sure to plan your trip to Oregon during or between those months.
Kiteboarding s another sport you should have a go at. Even if you’re a beginner or if you’ve never held a kiteboard before, there are numerous quality schools in Hood River eager to teach you the ropes and anything else you need to know about the sport.
The best thing about these school is they go the extra mile to teach you things that few other similar schools do. In addition to kiteboarding lessons, you’ll also get to put theory into practice in many famous kiteboarding destinations. And you will be given instructions about two-way Bluetooth helmets as well as be given jet-ski assistance.
Last of all, even if you’re not into extreme sports, why not just stroll to the river and watch the masters do their thing? It’s sports action that’s definitely worth a watch.
Hiking may not really be a sport and neither is it extreme, but it’s still a fun activity, which qualifies it to be on this list.
