The Big Winds staff is filled with athletes who love to paddle. Some of us are recreational paddlers who go out for fun and the social aspect of the sport, and some of us (like myself) are WAY into it and paddle all the time for fitness and race training, and racing. Several of us are into SUP wave riding, whitewater and, of course, Downwinding! We are a staff made up of all ages (14-63) and about half guys and half girls. We have an extensive SUP lesson program and a huge SUP demo and rental fleet at our waterfront location in Hood River. And, this summer we are offering Guided SUP Tours, including the Gorge’s signature downwind run from Viento to Hood River. We are also offering a shuttle service to Viento, for paddlers, windsurfers and kiters.

We’d love the opportunity to share our enthusiasm and experience and help you get set up with gear that will maximize your fun on the water, not matter what your level of involvement.
So give us a call. We’re your SUP experts!
