Sternwheel SUP Surfing the Columbia Gorge with Mike Tavares and Dan Gavere. Mike T was surfing the Badfish 12.6 MVP by Boardworks Surf. The sternwheel allows for up to 2 hours of continuous surfing if the conditions are right and you are up to the challenge. It is possible to get left behind with a 5 mile paddle back to the dock against the wind and current! Always get prior approval from the captain and never get in their way, they will run you over!
