Meet Next Adventure

Next Adventure is comprised of five Oregon locations: our flagship store on SE Grand & Stark, Paddle Sports Center on SE 7th Ave, Scappoose Bay, Sandy, and online at NextAdventure.net. Next Adventure was conceived by childhood friends Deek & Bryan in 1997 selling only used gear and closeouts, and has now grown into the premier outdoor retailer. Whether you are a kayaker, climber, snowboarder, hiker, camper, skier, cyclist, disc golfer, or mountaineer, you’ll find the right gear for the right price. Inform, Outfit, Excite, our tagline says it all: who we are, what we are, and why we do it. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the wilderness and getting all we can from it. We use this to share a bond with our customers & spread the joy of getting everyone outside safely, comfortably, efficiently, and within your budget. We love what we do, and we’ll get you into it too.


The journey and evolution of Next Adventure has been a fun and exciting process. Here are some of our favorite moments over the years.
