There are few things I love more than Hood River, Oregon. The wind, the water, the heat and the people. Oh, the wonderful people. We started coming here 16 years ago and we've built a West Coast family. It's always a joy to come back. The outdoor possibilities here are practically endless. Hiking to massive waterfalls, paddling both flat water and killer downwinders in the swell, windsurfing, kiteboarding, mountain biking, you name it, they do it here. It's special to be able to travel across the country and feel like you're still home. Like every year, we'll be sad to leave. But, we know coming back is never too far away.
