Coming to a launch near you! SUP-n-Pub is a fun, casaul SUP meetup/race event thing that takes place on Wednesday evenings in July and August. Come to one, some or all of them as we explore different lauch sites in the area.
***WEDNESDAY Aug 5th SUP-n-Pub update: This week's event is a special SUP-n-Pup-n-Pub edition! Bring your SUP dog out to play. Seeing all the dogs on boards is going to be greatl
Location: George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego. Meet up about 6:00. We'll see if the dog crowd is up for a race or not, but we'll for sure get in a nice group paddle :-) The post race meet up on the patio at Blast Burgers (315 First Street, between Manzana and St. Honore Bakery) overlooking Lakewood Bay. FYI, happy hour starts at 8:00!
Other launches we'll visit include the Other Willamette Park, Cathedral Park, Frenchman's Bar and more! The whole idea is to get us out exploring our amazing SUP city. Join the Stand Up Portland Facebook Group if you haven't already. Weekly updates will be posted there and on the Gorge Facebook page.
Snowboard and Skate Dept Updates
Have you seen our new permanent snowboard den and the new skateboard dept? Rather than shuffle snow items to the way back in spring, we're leaving the goods on the main floor in our new Snow Den. We've got great deals on snowboards, boots and bindings up to 50% off.
The Skateboard Dept has undergone a major updating as well. New shop decks starting at $99 complete and tons of longboards and cruisers in stock and ready for these sunny days!
Did you know? We always have a local low price guarantee, meaning we'll price match any in-stock item for item. So if you see a sweet deal on a product we too 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!
Looking to buy a USED surfboard, used snowboard, used SUP or used kiteboard?
Search no more. We have a sh#tload of used boards in all sizes. Why? Because we offer the best consignment program in the world. Click links below to browse used gear....
USED KITES and KITEBOARDS
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).
