PADDLEBOARD TOURS

If you have been near any body of water in the past year, you have seen people stand-up paddleboarding. People of all athletic abilities are taking up paddleboarding because you can be a beginner and still have a great day out on the water. Paddleboarding on the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe, or cruising along the shore of Donner Lake, is an awesome workout combined with a vantage point not possible on the beach or from a boat. Whether you and your crew want a sweet, slow cruise along the shore or blood pumping early morning SUP yoga, you are sure to become addicted to this uber popular water sport!
