HOOD RIVER, Oregon - The 2016 Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge is a wrap and with our collaboration with the amazing crew at Werner Paddles we are stoked we have been able to provide "Insider Coverage." There were so many winners at this event, and beyond just those on the Podium. So stoked for local SUP shop Big Winds, who's owner Steve Gates has given so much to the sport and this event. With insane winds on Sunday Steve was able to show the world how amazing his back yard, the "Gorge," can be for stand up paddling. Well done to the race coordinators and of course congrats to all the racers, whose training and efforts should be recognized no matter where they finished. Of course a special congratulations to all of the Team Werner athletes. Enjoy the event recap. Video/Production by Dave Fusilli.
