When you paddle with us, you will receive WATER SAFETY techniques and HIGH-QUALITY INSTRUCTION by Professionally Certified Instructors. You will also be matched up with a board and equipment that suits your size and paddling level (this is key! We are all of different shapes and sizes and it is necessary to have different shaped and sized boards -thank you to all the amazing shapers & designers out there!). We operate directly ON THE WATER off of Barker's Island (this makes putting in and taking out EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE, CONVENIENT AND SAFE), and our location offers a protected inlet perfect for beginners and youth yet plenty of long distance waterway exploring for the advanced paddler. We carry a large selection of high-quality Stand Up Paddleboards, including boards made and sourced in the USA, Inflatable boards (as durable as it gets, convenient to pack/carry in the backpack provided, and ideal for moving water), Recreational boards, Touring boards, Whitewater Specific boards, Racing boards and more. During our season we are literally waiting for you down at our site on Barker's Island, so come see us during open hours and paddle the Island, or grab a board and get out there! Whatever your SUP related needs may be, we can help!
WE ARE PADDLERS. WE VALUE THE NATURAL WORLD AROUND US. WE LOVE GETTING OUT THERE AND INTO THE ENVIRONMENT IN ANY WAY/SHAPE/FORM. WE COME FROM A WHITEWATER BACKGROUND AND HAVE EXPERIENCE GUIDING ON RIVERS MOSTLY IN THE SOUTHWESTERN REGION OF COLORADO/NEW MEXICO. THIS IS WHERE WE FOUND SUP, AND OUR STOKE TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS BEGAN. WHEN THE RIVERS GOT TOO LOW FOR RAFTING WE BECAME OBSESSED WITH HOW VERSATILE AND FUN IT WAS PLAYING ON A BOARD. WE LEARNED ALL WE COULD ABOUT THE SPORT AND STILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND IMPROVE OUR EXPERTISE. WE NOW PADDLE YEAR-ROUND ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF WATERWAYS WITH AWESOME PEOPLE, WHO HAVE MADE PADDLEBOARDING THEIR PROFESSION! WE ATTEND CLINICS, BUILD UP OUR CERTIFICATIONS, CONSTANTLY KEEP UP WITH THE INDUSTRY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WE ARE OUT THERE DOING IT ALL THE TIME. WE ARE PROUD OF THE EQUIPMENT WE CHOOSE TO CARRY AND IT REFLECTS IN HOW AMAZED OUR CUTOMERS ARE WHEN THEY PADDLE WITH US!
WE ASK OURSELVES THIS OFTEN... WE ARE SHARING OUR EXPERTISE WITH YOU. AND, WE ARE DOING IT IN A WAY THAT HAS A DELIBERATE, LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT TO COMPLIMENT WHAT WE PLACE VALUE UPON. WE OPERATE DIRECTLY ON THE WATER'S EDGE IN AN EASILY ACCESSED LOCATION, OFFERING AFFORDABLE RATES, IN A GREAT COMMUNITY! WE DO THIS SO THAT WE CAN OFFER A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE TO ANYONE LOOKING TO PADDLE IN OUR AREA, WHERE WATER IS IN SUCH ABUNDANCE. WE ARE EDUCATING YOU, WE ARE KEEPING YOU SAFE, AND WE ARE PROVIDING YOU WITH NEW SKILLS AND AN EXPERIENCE. OUR MISSION IS TO HELP YOUTH & ADULTS CONNECT WITH THEIR WATERWAYS. THIS PROMOTES PRESERVATION AND CREATES A SUSTAINABLE WAY OF DOING BUSINESS. WE ENJOY WHAT WE DO, AND ARE EVEN MORE STOKED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU!
