Stand Up Paddle-boarding is a relatively new sport that simply involves standing on a surf board with a long paddle and paddling your way around the water. Stand up Paddleboards may be made of fiberglass, wood and some are even inflatable.

This new sport is taking the water by storm. Stand Up Paddle-boarding is the fastest growing? paddle sport ever. Stand up paddle boarding can be done by almost anyone almost anywhere, just add water.

Colorado is a great place to try Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort is in the heart of it all. In the Arkansas River valley there is of course the Arkansas River with whitewater parks in Buena Vista and in Salida. Stand Up Paddle Boarding on the river may be a bit advanced for most but it is fun to watch the experienced paddlers surf the waves in the whitewater parks. If you are just starting out take an instructional lesson at CKS in downtown Buena Vista, Colorado.
