Big Winds Down Wind Shuttle Service is wrapped up for the 2018 season.

The shuttle will resume operations in 2019 once the spring melt subsides around late May-early July.

Big Winds' shuttle offers an opportunity for experienced water sport enthusiasts to enjoy a downwind experience in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.

The shuttle service is designed for people who are experienced at paddling, windsurfing or kiteboarding. The shuttle meets at the Big Winds SUP Center, in Hood River, Oregon, a half hour before the departure time. Don't be late! The shuttle takes you up to Viento State Park so you can paddle/ride back to the Big Winds SUP Center.

You can park your vehicle at the Big Winds SUP Center, check in and pay. Once you have checked in, please leave your personal belongings and anything you don’t want on the water with you in your car.

During the peak season, there may be more than one shuttle per day. Frequent flyers can pay $100 for 10 trips. Please call in advance to confirm shuttle availability. Reservations are required.
