Gorge News, Specials and Events

Gorge will be closed Feb 9-10

Heads up! The shop will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday when the crew goes to Mission Ridge, WA for the Dealer Demo Days to test boards for next year. Yes, it's tough work, but someone's got to do it. Heh, heh. Reports and reviews to come.

40-in-Feb Challenge and Race Board Demos

We're starting our 40-in-Feb SUP Training Challenge in a few days. Let's do this! It's simple, you just need to log 40 miles on your SUP in February. We did this last year and it proved to be a huge boost to our fitness for the new season.

Plus we've got two SUP Board Demo Days in coming up! We got to see many of these boards in action at last year's Pacific Paddle games and we're excited for you all to get to see the new lineups.

The first Demo is Saturday, Feb 6th and the second will be on Saturday March 5th. Both demos will be held at Vancouver Lake. We'll be testing boards from SIC, Riviera, NSP, Starboard, Amundson and more. It's free, just bring your own paddle. BTW, if you're not on our email newsletter list, please consider signing up - it's a great way to have event updates delivered to your inbox!

Traveling tropical this winter?

From sandals to boardshorts, boards to boardbags, GoPro cameras to tropical wax, we've got the gear you need (all year 'round!) to be prepared.

Paddleboard sale on SICs and Rivieras! Details on the SUP page.

2015/16 Snowboard gear

The snow shred season is upon us! Please drop in (or call) to hear about 2016 gear specials that we can't yet advertise. Plus we have killer deals on closeout gear from last season. No betta time to gear up than right now!

200+ New surfboards and SUPs in stock! Check our SURF page for a list of surfboards in stock. Used Surfboards are browseable at our online store. Our SUP board inventory (new and used) is also browseable at our online store.

Did you know? We always have a local low price guarantee. If you see a sweet deal elsewhere in town on an available (in stock) product, please give us a chance to deliver on that promise. Plus you'll get the other perks that come from shopping at Gorge Performance, like free stuff when you buys a board, expert advice, killer service and general stoke for you and your new toy.

Pack it or rack it? We stock a variety of cargo carriers and rack systems from Thule and Yakima. Cargo carriers are the perfect answer for hauling your gear safely and keeping it dry and out of sight. We'll order up your fit kit if we don't have it on hand (feel free to call in advance so we can check). We'll even help you install it!

Customer Service perks from Gorge Performance...

Every new surfboard comes with a free leash and wax. Nearly every board comes with free fins!

Every new snowboard purchase comes with a free hot wax IOU. Burn off the factory wax, then bring 'er in for a fresh coat. NICE!

We ship wetsuit warranties for free, AND we'll loan you a replacement suit to keep you on the water (some restrictions apply).

We strive to be the best shop we can. Please let us (and the world) know how we're doing by rating us on Facebook or Yelp about us...
