Thanks to a bodacious wind tunnel effect, the Gorge is enjoyed by windsurfers and kiteboarders from around the world! On calm days, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is a popular alternative for getting out into the water.

Please note that some of the best launch sites along the Columbia River are protected tribal fishing sites that have been in use for generations. Respect local cultures and their treaty rights, which grant them access to these traditional fishing sites, by sharing the river with respect.
