Wetsuit Sale extended thru Valentines Day
Save 20% in store credit on the latest and greatest from Xcel (including the new Xcel TDC suits pictured above), Patagonia, Rip Curl and O'Neill. How it works is this...buy any new full wetsuit and you'll receive 20% of the suit price in store credit that you can apply to anything in the store. Use same day or we'll load your credit on a gift card to give to someone (Valentines gift perhaps) or just save it for a rainy day. You could even get creative and bring in a friend to use each other's credit towards both suits. Sounds crazy, but we want to make it work for you!
SUP race season is just around the corner!!
Gorge Performance is offering a couple of SUP skills clinics this spring: one is a free orientation for newbie racers wanting more info on what goes down on race day. The other two clinics we have lined up are to help you improve your power and efficiency when paddling, whether you're on the race course or just to get more satisfaction on your fitness and pleasure paddles. More info on the SUP page.
Gorge also puts on two pretty awesome SUP races here in Portland. First up is the Willamette SUP Cup on Sunday, April 26th and Online Registration is OPEN! Then we have the Rose City SUP Classic on Sunday, June 14th. Registration for that race will open soon.
In addition to our own events, there are many SUP events in the PWN and beyond! Here's a NW SUP Racing calendar posted by our friends at Team 206. This will give you an idea of what's out there.
2015 SUPs and paddles arriving!!! New gear is arriving by the truck load! Fresh of the truck are boards and paddles from SIC and boards from Surftech and Starboard! Whoot!
Did you know? We always have a low price guarantee, meaning we'll price match any in-stock item for item. So if you see some sweet deal out there on an identical product to what we have in stock, give us a chance to deliver on that promise.
Pack it or rack it? Did you know we're a Thule and Yakima dealer? We stock a variety of cargo carriers, the perfect answer for hauling your gear and keeping it dry and out of sight. We don't have our roof rack inventory out on display, so you just have to ask!

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!
