Big Winds has once again put together the largest rental fleet in the Columbia River Gorge, stocked with the hottest windsurfing gear for 2013. Located in Hood River, Oregon, our shop is minutes away from some of the best bump and jump sailing in the world. Our rental season runs from May to October, during which our rental department will be happy to make your sailing dreams come true!
Our full package includes a windsurf board, three sails and a mast, along with all the other hardware and accessories necessary to get out on the water. For 2013, we're also offering reduced-diameter skinny masts for sail sizes 6.0 and below. We'll even hook you up with rack pads and rack straps for your car, so you're free to cruise up and down the Gorge seeking out your favorite conditions.
What's more, you're free to exchange your gear as often as you like (depending on availability, of course). No matter if you want to try a larger sail or a smaller board, the Big Winds rental department has you covered.
You'll only be charged for
the days you use your gear.
If you've got plans in the middle of your vacation that precludes sailing, bring the gear back in and we won't charge you for that day. It doesn't matter if you're going to a wedding or have decided to go water skiing on those hundred degree windless days. But, you have to bring your gear back to the shop in order to avoid being charged.
Let us make your trip to the Gorge a great one. For more information on rentals give us a call at 888-509-4210 or email us at .

What size board should I rent?
The above information is based off of an average windy day in the gorge. Based on your ability and weight we will try to accommodate you with the best size board for the conditions of the day.
What type of board should I rent?
We carry boards in our rental fleet that generally fit into one of the following categories: Bump and Jump, Wave, Freestyle Wave, and Slalom Freeride. Many of the modern shapes are able to crossover in two or more of these categories creating boards that handle most conditions very well. Whatever type of sailing you are into, we have a board that will suite your style and give you a fun ride here in the Gorge. We will post more information about our fleet as it becomes available.
