We need tougher boards to handle renter abuse! Our environment is all rock and very hard on fiberglass boards.

What kind of paddling settings and conditions are near your shop?

Located on the border of Utah and Arizona and surrounded by the Navajo Nation, Lake Powell is one of the world’s top SUP destinations. The incredible canyons and natural landscapes are unlike anywhere else on earth. Lake Powell is located in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.  Glen Canyon was the name of the tranquil section of the Colorado River that once meandered through red rock canyons which, after the building of Glen Canyon Dam in 1966, became the stunning blue waters of Lake Powell. The lake is named after explorer John Wesley Powell, the first documented person to float the Colorado River. We are located in Page, which is the only city near Lake Powell. The lake is over 150 miles long, has 94 major canyons and is very remote. It’s like being in your own world! Other than the Page section of the lake, there are no services, restaurants, hotels or gas stations except for just a few far up lake. So come prepared!

What is it about paddling that gets you going in the morning? That gets you excited?

We love to see the look on our customers faces when they return from paddling the canyons. They are blown away by the beauty of this place. We love showing it to people. We have visitors from all over the world who come here to see the famous Antelope Slot canyon. We have had people from as far away as Russia, Saudi Arabia, China and Bangladesh!

Tell us about  the paddling  community in your  area?

We have a small group of locals here. Our town only has about 7000 residents. We have over 1 million visitors here every year! We have a meet-up group which is growing. We do a lot with our local Navajo kids and participate in a lot of local activities.

What local events do you have and what are their dates and locations?

Since the lake is in the National Park we are limited on what we can do. No races allowed. We do have SUPIA Youth Days in June. We work with the Active Trails Navajo youth program each summer.

Best piece of SUP advice you give to paddlers?

Paddling out is voluntery, paddling back is mandatory! Take water with you always! (FYI- It costs $26,000 to get rescued by heleicopter here!)

What are your must-have accessories for every paddler?

PFD, leash, water, Lake Powell Paddleboards hat and sunscreen
