Paddle boarding is the fasted growing sport in the World, and the team at Stand Up Paddle Colorado are a huge part of the movement in the USA.
Based out of Rancho Del Rio (30 minutes from Kremmling), the SUP tours travel along a sheltered stretch of the Colorado River offering incredible scenery and just enough waves to test your maneuvering and surfing skills.
Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is a kind of a cross between surfing and canoeing. Using a large, specially designed surfboard and a long paddle, the rider stands facing forward and maneuvers the board using a combination of balance & paddle strokes.
Everyone feels a little wobbly when they first try standing on an SUP board, but after about 20 minutes expert tuition by your friendly SUP guide, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how quickly you start to feel at home on the board. By the end of the trip, you’ll most likely find yourself surfing e-bay for stand-up paddle boards!
Yes! To take part in the individual SUP tours, participants must be at least 13 years of age; younger kids (8+) can also join in the fun aboard the multi-person SUPSQUATCH (see right). Furthermore, any kids under 8 (or folks that just don’t feel comfortable doing SUP) can cruise down the river watch the fun from the comfort of a guided raft.
