Windsurfing & Kiteboarding

Catch some air above the water.

The span of Columbia River near Hood River is one of the country’s top spots for windsurfing and kiteboarding, earning it the moniker “windsurfing capital of the world.” The sport has spread to other popular waterways around the state too. The annual Pistol River Wave Bash takes place in June in Gold Beach on the Oregon Coast.
