IMPORTANT UPDATE regarding SUP rentals

We are temporarily suspending the use of our wheeled carts to transport SUP boards to the Willamette Park boat ramp until further notice due to the following reasons:

1) construction on Miles Place is making passage difficult, if not impossible

2) inadequate area or rack to lock our wheeled carts near the ramp. Locking the carts to the docks is not advized as they tend to impeed the intended use of the docks. We’ve contacted the Portland Parks Dept to see about adding a bike rack or similar to serve as a central area where wheeled carts may be locked.

3) heavy congestion of motor boats, commercial boats, kayaks, sailboats, jetskis, SUPs, etc. at the boat ramp on weekends during the peak months of summer have created a potentially hazardous situation. We can recommend other great places to paddle on the weekends.

Renters are welcome to transport boards to the location of their choosing with their vehicle. We can provide softracks for vehicles without roof racks. Maximum of two boards per softrack, or up to 4 boards if stacked side by side on a factory or after market roof rack. We reserve the right to refuse rental to anyone if we deem the mode of transportation unsafe.

Thank you for accepting that safety is our first priority! We’ll bring the carts back as soon we can.

 

General Rental Info & Policies

All SURF Dept. Rentals are due back one hour before closing the following day. (Note: We close at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Give yourself ample time to get back to Gorge by 6 p.m.)

A credit card is required – and will be used for payment – for all rentals.

All gear will be checked for damage prior to rental and again upon return. Renters are responsible for any damage incurred to the gear during your rental period (whether caused by you, your buddy, or "other"). The cost will be determined by the repair expense or replacement value if beyond repair.

Reservations: Daily and weekend rentals are first come first served. We do not take reservations for daily rentals. Pre-paid reservations are, however, available for 3 or more consecutive midweek days or for weekends as long as Thursday or Tuesday are included in the rental period.

Are you driving to the shop for the first time? See driving directions below. It's a little tricky to get to.

Rent to Own! You may apply 50% of your Rental/Demo receipts up to $100 on SUPs and $50 on surfboards towards purchase of a new board. Used consignment items excluded. Credit is non-transferable.

Are you driving to the shop for the first time?

Gorge Performance is located in SW Portland at 7400 SW Macadam, Portland, OR 97219.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS (map below)

We are located on Macadam Ave., 1/8 of a mile SOUTH of Willamette Park and a 1/4 mile NORTH of the Sellwood Bridge, in the John's Landing area. The shop is on the RIVER side of Macadam, just NORTH of AutoWerks Body Shop (we share the same enterance from Macadam) at the intersection of Taylors Ferry and Macadam Ave.

The shop is a little tricky to get to coming from the north (from downtown Portland) on Macadam since there is no left turn at the Miles St. light. At peak traffic times, the left turn off of Macadam across traffic is no fun at all. Here's what you do.... Follow the Taylors Ferry exit and then cross over Macadam onto Miles St. Then turn right on the gravel road just before the railroad track. This also applies to folks coming down Taylors Ferry! The back way is the safe way!

Hours: Mon-Fri: 10-8, Sat: 10-7, Closed Sundays
