Black Project Paddles and Fins Dominate at Gorge Paddle Challenge 2021

Catching a glide in the Columbia River Gorge has never felt so good. Representing the first major SUP event in North America since the Covid-19 outbreak, the SIC Gorge Paddle Challenge 2021 was a weekend we will never forget. While competition is normally the highlight of the weekend, this year it was the simple camaraderie that brought beaming smiles to the faces of every paddler and fan in attendance. Remembering Steve Gates To say that a lot had changed since the last time we gathered in the Gorge would be a massive understatement. Beyond the toll of the pandemic, the event was noticeably missing its most familiar face––Steve Gates. A friend to everyone he met, Steve not only founded this event but was responsible for growing the Hood River paddling community and mentoring countless young paddlers––including 2019 APP World Champion Fiona Wylde––through the JET Team. He opened the famed Big
