With 80 degree temps slated for the weekend, along with an unbelievable in-store-only sales event at Big Winds, it's time to visit the Gorge! The SUP and Windsurfing Centers are open, the sun will be out, and the savings -- wetsuits, boards, sails, kites, e-bikes -- will be huge. It's our Big Winds 30th Birthday Summer Sales Event, sales event, Friday through Memorial Day weekend. Come visit, come save, and yeah, let's get riding!
