Gorge Rental FAQs & Policies

"Do I need a credit card to rent?"
Yes, and a valid drivers license or passport ID. Your credit card will be charged for the full rental payment. We do not accept cash for rentals. Please note that the person furnishing the cc for the rental is responsible for the full replacement value of all of the rented gear, as per the rental agreement.

"May I reserve a rental?" 
3-hour and daily rentals are first come first served only, no reservations. Pre-paid reservations are, however, available for 3 or more consecutive days for midweek surf and SUP rentals or for 4 consecutive days if over the weekend. For example, weekend reservations will be, at a minimum, from Thursday to Monday, or from Friday to Tuesday in order to be elligible for a pre-pay reservation. You can reserve for more than 4 days., 4 days is just the minimum.

"Is there a SUP launch I can walk to from the shop?"
Yes. The Willamette Park boat ramp is a 10-15 minute walk on a paved path. We have board dollies available for our basic rental boards. Our Demo SUPs require roof-top transportation.

'What are your vehicle requirements for transporting boards?"
You'll need a sturdy roof rack (factory rack or after-market). We can provide softracks for vehicles without roof racks but you'll be limited to two surfboards or one SUP board per car. Full size pickups should work for a surfboard rental, but shortbeds generally don't work, especially not for SUPs. We reserve the right to refuse rental to anyone if we deem the mode of transportation is unsafe.

"Do you rent to minors?" 
We do not rent to minors under 18 unless accompanied by a consenting adult to sign the rental agreement and pay with a credit card. 

"When are rentals due back?"
All rentals are due back at least one hour before closing, that is 7:00pm M-F, or by 6:00pm on Saturday. We are closed Sundays.

"Will I be charged a fee if I'm late?"
Yes. We will assess a 50% late fee for up to an hour late. We charge a full day's rental fee if you are over an hour late, or do not return the gear until the following day.

"I am running late, will you stay beyond closing time and wait for me?"
No, we cannot stay beyond closing time. You'll have to return the gear the following day. We open at 10:00am.

"Do you have a cut-off time for a 3-hr SUP rental?"
Rentals must be returned one hour before we close. If you are walking the board(s) to Willamette Park plan a minimum of 20 minutes round trip walking time. Therefore, we recommend renting before 5:30pm on weekdays, and before 4:30pm on Saturdays. FYI, we do have a SWING SHIFT rental option for SUPs (Mon-Fri) where you can pick up after 5pm and return it before 11am the following day ($60).

"I've never stand up paddled before. Do I need to to Iake a lesson?"
You do not need to take a lesson before renting. If you'd like to fasttrack your learning curve with proper paddling technique right out of the gate, you might consider taking our Intro to SUP lesson. Lessons are scheduled in advance (no same day bookings). 

"What happens if my rental gear gets damaged?"
You will be responsible for any damage (or loss) incurred during your rental period (regardless of negligence, accident, or freak of Nature). The fee will be determined by the cost of the repair or the replacement value if the damage is beyond repair. Check your gear for damage prior to your rental. Call out anything in question. We don't want to accidientally send out something that needs repair. 

"Can I apply rentals towards purchase?"
Yes, you may apply 50% of your Rental/Demo receipts up to a maximum credit of $100 toward a new SUPs, and a maximum credit of $50 toward a new surfboards. Used consignment items are excluded from the rental/demo credit. Your rental credit is non-transferable.

"Where is Gorge Performance located?"
Our address is 7400 SW Macadam Ave. Portland, OR 97219. Phone: 503-246-6646. See the driving directions below for driving tips.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

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
