For years (30 to be exact) Gorge Performance has been a hardcore surf shop with an emphasis on stocking a ton of surfboards and wetsuits for men and women, and less focus on apparel. Sure, boardshorts and tees for guys have been staple items at Gorge, but not much for our surfer girls. Now that flatwater SUP – a sport not requiring a full wetsuit like surfing does – has firmly staked its claim in the Gorge board-dom, it’s only natural we expand our women’s clothing selection to include functional fitness apparel intended for paddling (and surfing, yoga, rock climbing,… living!). These items are meant to move, like you do.
We’ve recently introduced a new brand to the shop: prAna. A name well-know in the world of yoga and rock climbing, prAna has launched a new line of swimwear we think paddlers and surfers alike will love. prAna makes incredible clothing with only the finest fabrics and a firm belief in doing good for the earth, body, and mind. We dig this company and think it’s a great fit for our kick-ass Gorge Girls. Stop in and see for yourself! And guys, Prana also has killer clothing for guys. Speak up if you want to see it in the shop!
Also in, new swimsuits and boardshorts from O’Neill. If you haven’t yet seen and felt their Hyperfreak boardshorts, prepare to be seriously “wow”-ed. The fabric is incredibly light and stretchy.
Last but not least, an entirely new line of fitness wear from Roxy (aptly named Roxy Outdoor Fitness) is due to arrive in June. Bottom line, ladies, you have options!
