Surf’s Up Colorado Style! Paddle your way across rivers and reservoirs during this two week Stand Up Paddle board adventure. Our first week will be spent swimming the warm waters and SUP’ing below the Ponderosa Pines at numerous lakes and reservoirs in our backyard. From our lakeshore basecamps we will perfect the art of paddling while exploring side canyons, remote shores and driftwood beaches. Week two takes us to the rivers and the wilds of the Domiguez-Escalante Wilderness area. With individual instruction and guidance from the Academy boating staff our SUP adventure will launch the Gunnison River for a multi-day, self-support river trip! Paddlers will pack and rig their own dry bags as they navigate the twists and turns of this desert landscape. We will run small rapids, camp on remote river beaches and explore hidden side canyons in search of ancient petroglyphs and secret swimming holes. Padd-O-rado is a unique aquatic adventure that will leave you with lifelong skills and have you preaching the power of the paddle!
