Stand Up Paddleboarding is the newest of the 6 free/donation based programs UpaDowna offers. It is designed to encourage folks to try the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding and provide info about where to rent or buy your own equipment. It is amazing to see the empowerment that kids have after they learn how to paddle on their own! It is also very inspiring for adults to find a new, healthy, and fun sport that they can easily do!
SUP Social Info:
-FREE community paddle party, drop in anytime we are there!
-Find us on the west side of the lake under the black tent!
-Feel free to bring your own equipment (kayaks, canoes, boards) or use our boards for free. Prospect Lake requires a permit if you have your own watercraft. Those can be purchased at Sertich Ice Center or the boathouse near the lake
-We provide EVERYTHING you need: a board, paddle, life jacket, and permit
-All ages/skill levels welcome! We recommend kids 10 and under ride with an adult
-Wear athletic clothing/swimsuits/trunks and sandals or water shoes and bring a towel and a change of clothing
-UpaDowna has boards to share. If you would like to rent one, please check out our SUP Social supporting business Pikes Peak Outfitter or buy one from our sup provider, Shaboomee.
-Due to the popularity of this program, there can be a line for the equipment. It’s suggested to bring other activities to pass the time.
