Gorge Games return, with new events and marketing plan

    Riverboarding on the White Salmon River will be part of the new Gorge Games, which run Thursday through Sunday.

    Imagine racing down the White Salmon River, tumbling over Husum Falls with little more than a life jacket and a boogey board. Imagine handling class IV rapids in a head-to-head, full-contact competition, against the best in the world.

    Or imagine looking on at the professionals in this spectacle, while you’re safely from the banks of the river, near Husum, Wash.

    “We call them insane,” Darcy Hunter of the Gorge Games says of the riders.
