Due to the Columbia River Gorge wind and the river currents, Hood River is one place that is internationally renowned for windsurfing. People come from around the world to partake or just to watch and photograph the windsurfing and kite sailing action. Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced boarder, in Hood River, you’ll be able to find new, used, and rental equipment, river guides, lessons, and Columbia River Gorge windsurfing information.
The Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association, one of the largest windsurfing organizations in the United States, is based in Hood River. This organization works to improve conditions and access for wind sports enthusiasts in the Gorge and also sponsors several meetings, lessons, and events, including the US Windsurfing National Championships in August which is exciting to watch.
Kitesurfing, also known as kite sailing or kiteboarding, is also extremely popular in the Columbia River Gorge. If you haven’t tried the sport yet, consider connecting with the Gorge Kiteboarding School, Kite the Gorge or New Wind Kiteboarding for lessons and advice.
For your windsurfing and kiteboarding equipment and more, Hood River Waterplay is a rental that sets up on the east lawn of the Best Western Hotel on the Columbia. Big Winds Hood River located on Front Street both sells and rents equipment that you might need.
