Another spring week is upon us. The weather is changing and the paddling season is ever closer. We’re now less than 100 days from Lake Tahoe’s finest standup paddle event, our very own Race the Lake of the Sky. Registration is open and lodging is already starting to fill up.
Head over to the Race the Lake of the Sky website to sign up. If you’ve never attended, there’s a ton of great videos, photos and info about past races. A brand new show-length video about last year’s event just went up. Check it out below!
This year we’ve partnered with Beach Retreat & Lodge at Tahoe to be our host hotel. Check out the Lodging and Dining page for the discount code. We’ll have more information, including the location of the pre-registration party on Friday and a great announcement from Kona Brewing coming out in the next few weeks, so STAY TUNED!
If you’re looking to gear up for the summer, South Tahoe Standup Paddle has everything you will need. All the new 2015 models are arriving in the coming week. Check out products from Riviera Paddlesurf, 404 SUP, Lakeshore Paddleboard Company and Boardworks SUP. From racing to touring, these companies make boards for every breed of paddler.
The shop also carries a bunch of accessories like waterproof bags, fins, sunglasses, paddle wear, slacklines, videos, personal flotation and more. If you’re just looking for a shirt, we’ve got some great new South Tahoe Standup Paddle hoodies and tee’s. We are open everyday and rentals are available. Give us a call: 530-416-4829. If we are not in the storefront, we are nearby, usually around back in the warehouse, prepping for summer.
The entire industry is ramping up for the summer. It’s amazing how much standup paddling has grown as a sport. With a major circuit of races, professionals are traveling the world to compete. Just last week, many of the racers that join us for Race the Lake of the Sky were going head to head in New Zealand.
We’re fortunate to have a paddling destination right here in our backyard. While the summer is sure to see countless visitors out enjoying life on the lake, spring is still quiet. This season is our chance to truly indulge in the big blue. Get out and enjoy the sport.
