I’m reporting this week from Moab, sickness Utah, mind where the paddling is hot, dusty and spectacular. The winding Colorado River Canyon is an incredibly beautiful and relaxing place to get on the water. Of course, the river here is pretty silty and leaves me hankering for a dip in the cool blue of Tahoe. Up at the Lake of the Sky this week, it looks like you’re in for clear skies and slightly cooler temperatures. Winds will pick up to around 10 mph from the southwest in the afternoons. If you haven’t made the trek out to Emerald Bay this summer, this might be a great week to do it. On the events front, the Ultimate SUP Showdown will kick off on Oahu. With a $25,000 cash purse, the three-day race will draw some of the best paddlers in the world. At Lake Tahoe, the amazing Ta-Hoe Nalu will launch in Kings Beach on Aug. 15. Featuring Polynesian dances, an outrigger race and a bunch of different races, the event is definitely one of Tahoe’s best. On the South Shore, the summer is winding down. The staff made sure to pull one last prank before calling it a season. Rentals and new boards are still available, so come see us. Just three races are left in the Wednesday Night SUP Series. If you haven’t already, get out there and race! As always, we’d love to hear from your paddling comments, questions and stories. Please feel free to visit our Facebook page
