Another opportunity to try out the board of your dreams.....and maybe even drive away with it is coming on May 20th! Gorge Performance is hosting a free board demo event for folks to test out a number of different size/shape/volume SUPs to help you determine the best race/touring/all-around/inflatable SUP for you.
In addition to our cadre of demo boards, the crew at Red Paddle Co. will be there with their touring demo fleet. See and test the whole line of Red Inflatable SUPs.
If you are looking to try something specific, drop by the shop and talk with Bob ahead of time. He is always eager to help a paddler connect with the board that is best for them. Browse our full selection of new and used boards here.

Gorge Performance is supporting a team of six Portland stand up paddleboarders when they spend 24 hours on the Willamette River beginning at 8 a.m. on April 15th to raise money for local families battling Cancer. Their goal is to raise $6,000, and anonymously put $1,000 in the hands of 6 families who need it the most.
Are you considering a SUP-grade? If you're looking to buy or sell a used paddleboard, our SUP Swap Meet on Saturday, Feb 25th is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Weather is looking dry and sunny! We might even need to go for a post swap paddle!
The epic snow conditions of 2017 have not gone unnoticed by the crew at Gorge Performance. (Let's just say needing to get a shift covered on pow days has been fairly typical this winter.) We took a moment to ask the guys what equipment they are riding and wearing this season. These are their no BS picks that actually improve riding experience. If you have a question about gear or are thinking about making a change, these guys know their stuff.
