WHAT'S SUP? BEST SUP SPOTS NEAR DENVER
SUP? No it's not a new Asian soup. It's a relatively new water sport, at least in Colorado. Although we mostly practice it on the West Coast, we believe that the best Stand Up Paddleboard spots are in Colorado (not biased at all). Good news: we offer SUP rentals with the rental of your Native Campervans.
To facilitate your next road trip, here are our favorite SUP'n spots near Denver

Horsetooth is a 6.5-mile long reservoir located an hour from Denver, not far from the Wyoming border. Insider's tip: for the most beautiful scenic route and to avoid common touristic routes, paddle around Satanka Cove, located at the most northern tip of Horsetooth Reservoir. A-MA-ZING!

In a nutshell, Boulder Reservoir is a strech of calm water perched between the Colorado Rockies with a view of the surrounding mountains, including the oh-so popular Rocky Mountain National Park. For a successful day, paddle against the current, lie comfortably on your SUP and let the current take you back to whe white sand beach. Yes, being lazy is fun.
Ready for an afternoon in the sun? Before you leave though, let's remember what mom would say: ''Now, don't forget your lifejacket''.
