Stand Up Paddleboarding
We've gone crazy for SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) here at ECHO!
The new inflatable SUPs are much more stable, especially with their ability to punch through waves and remain balanced in rapids. We've been experimenting with the new boards this spring on the Hood River and White Salmon River - both within 20 minutes of ECHO World Headquarters. A few of us have even gotten comfortable running Class III and IV rapids!
We just ordered some brand new Badfish MCIT boards for our Rogue River trips. The Rogue River is the perfect place to try out SUP. For the past couple of years, we've let people SUP in big pools around camp, but with the increased stability of the new style of boards, we're ready to have you try them out downriver on some of the easier sections.
We'll bring SUP boards along on most of our Rogue River trips this summer. If you're excited to try this out let us know and we'll make sure we have one along on your trip!
