New New New!

This time of year we get new arrivals every day. This week we received our fall 2015 Dakine. Yes I said fall! The seasons are slightly off in the retail world. Dakine offers new prints a few times a year, fall being one of the big ones. With new styles and prints, their is something for everyone. And a new pack makes a GREAT fathers day or graduation gift.


The other new arrival was TEVA. From light hikers to water shoes, TEVA has you covered. We love the bright colors that the Original Sandal is offered in. Can you say retro! TEVA was born around water so they make the perfect Gorge shoe.


Hood 2 River Relay

Looking for something to do this weekend? How about the Hood 2 River relay?! The 2nd annual Hood 2 River Relay is on May 30th. Grab your running shoes and 5 friends who can run, bike and kayak and do the event as a team, or if you are a pro outdoor recreationalist do it as an individual. Starting high on Mt. Hood you can test your downhill speed with 6 legs that drop you 6000 feet of elevation to the banks of the Columbia River. In between you will race through the Mt. Hood National Forest, Hood River Valley and on the Columbia River. Follow up your achievement with a BBQ or we have some awesome food from Tofurky for those who are vegetarian at the Full Sail Brewing post-race party. Mother Nature has not been cooperative on giving us snow to work with so we will be changing out the downhill ski and Nordic ski legs to an uphill sprint and trail runs at Mt .Hood Meadows.

Not only can you purchase Moonshine boards at Doug’s, you can also demo selected Moonshine longboards.


Join us for May First Friday!

Looks like another beautiful week in Hood River! This Friday kicks off the First Friday of the season. We have local artist Jamie Armstrong with Wanderlust Artistry joining us from 5pm-8pm. She is bringing her awesome hand made jewelry and bags.


We have tons of new arrivals this week. Hot off the UPS truck is our first summer shipment of TOMS. One of our favorites is the Majorca Peep Toe Boot in black leather basket weave. This boot is going to go FAST! Once they’re gone, they’re gone.








If you are a skateboarding fan, you do not want to miss the premiere of the VANS movie Propeller. It is showing in Portland this Friday at 7pm. The Doug’s skate team will be there showing their support. Check it out!





Santa Barbara, Calif. – April 20, 2015 – Toad&Co, sponsor of this year’s Outside magazine “Best Towns” Campaign, is pleased to announce that for the first time there will be a wild card component to select the last four towns that make the list of 64. Hood River did not make the list of 60, now we will have a chance to have ourselves voted in through a social media campaign.
Outside Magazine is the leading publication in the outdoor sport and lifestyle space. This is the first time they are implementing such a program – giving the towns a voice! Doug’s is the premier outdoor outfitter in the area. We proudly sell Toad&Co as well as Teva, Sanuk, Roxy, and more! And are thrilled to help the local community get out and explore. But just because we all know how cool our town is and how much we have to offer the outdoor- minded community, does not mean the rest of our region does. Let’s change this!
Launched April 20th,  the list of 60 towns were announced by Outside. There will be an Instagram, Facebook and Twitter campaign where towns, like ourselves, have the chance to upload photos and videos using #BestTowns2015 and tag Hood River Oregon, and why you love it!. (only instagram tags count towards the contest)It’s then in our court to ensure those photos/videos have the most likes, shares, comments, and above all PASSIONATE SUPPORT.
So let’s all rally around the town we love and get ourselves voted in! Anyone can participate: individual, local school districts, companies, town-run websites, etc. The more the merrier! The cutoff for the wild card period is April 30th and winners will be announced on May 4th. It’s going to be a fast 10 days of activation, but we can do it!
To learn more about the program, please visit Outside online. Happy uploading and don’t forget to use #BestTowns2015 Hood River Oregon
