Skamania Lodge has partnered with Gorge Flyboarding for an exciting adventure where you can surf the clouds! FlyBoarding is the ultimate water sport for the adrenaline junkie near Hood River. The FlyBoard is an accessory that attaches to the jet discharge of a Personal Watercraft (PWC) and uses the jet discharge of the PWC to propel the device through the air and water. Most people tend to get up on the board within 5 to 10 min on their first attempt at FlyBoarding. It’s actually very natural and intuitive, just like walking! It's all in the balance.
