Hood River - gear rental recommendation

Postby Steve271 » Sat Feb 20, 2021 12:14 am

I have a work trip to Portland in early April- I hope to extend by a few days for kiteboarding (twin tip) but don’t want to fly with my gear for such a short trip.
Can anyone recommend where I might rent gear for a couple of days from the event site or nearby?
Just kite/board/bar. Will bring water wear
Happy to take more lessons if necessary - maybe sharpen up some skills if I can’t rent without lessons
I’m low intermediate and have IKO cert to make renting easier, plus from mid west, so familiar with cold water and gusty inland wind.
