Come for the wind. Known as the windsurfing capital of the world, it’s a given we have lots of wind in Hood River County. With the Columbia River Gorge in our front yard and easy accessibility from Hood River, Cascade Locks, and other nearby towns, we truly are a windsurfing mecca. Novice or expert; we welcome you to come enjoy the sport we’ve loved for so long.
Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association The Association website features local knowledge, webcams of popular put-ins, events, map of beaches, information on lessons, and how you can get involved in the windsurfing community. They are an invaluable resource to all who participate in the sport.
