10 Reasons to Paddle Percy Priest


We’re counting down the Top 10 reasons to get your paddle on at Percy Priest Lake with Nashville Paddle Co.


10. UNLIMITED PADDLING

Why just paddle once when you can paddle the entire summer?!  A Locals Unlimited Summer Pass grants you access to classes and rentals from June – August.  Or pick up a Monthly Unlimited Pass for any 30 consecutive days.  Full details RIGHT HERE

 


9. FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Whether you want to go it alone or bring the whole crew — anyone can paddle! Make a day of it and bring a picnic lunch or games to play in the spacious grounds of our home, Hamilton Creek Recreation Area.  The lake provides the perfect backdrop for your family memories.  Start with our signature Intro to SUP lesson (more on this below).

 


8. FULL MOON PADDLES

People come to Nashville to see “stars,” right?  Escape the city and spend some time with celebs of the astronomical variety while watching a big, bright moon rise over the water. It only happens once a month and space is limited so make plans now!  Look for the moon on our homepage or CLICK HERE to book.

 


7. QUALITY EQUIPMENT FROM INDUSTRY LEADERS

Most people don’t realize how much the right (or wrong) gear affects your experience. The best paddles happen on the best boards like the ones you’ll find in our fleet by YOLO and HALA.  Looking to purchase your own?  We sell our used boards (and those of our paddler friends), as well as other paddling-related gear, in our ONLINE STORE.

 


6. INTRO TO SUP 

Been dying to try, but scared you can’t do it?  Intro to SUP will show you just how easy standing on water can be! Our certified instructors will lead you through a brief land lesson before accompanying you on the water to explore gorgeous Percy Priest with your newfound talent.  RESERVE YOUR SPOT and start to check this off your bucket list.

 


5. GROUPS 

Birthdays, bachelor/ettes, corporations, sports teams, schools, scouts, meet up groups…. however you gather, we hope you’ll consider gathering with us. Schedule a private class, excursion, or arrange to have the entire fleet all to yourselves. Email us to arrange your next outing and secure your spot as “Office Hero”.

 


4. SUNSET SOCIAL PADDLES

Twice a week, we turn our last rental slot of the day into a 90min guided group paddle. It’s one of the BEST times to be on the lake as everything slows down around you during, what we call, the “magic hour” — that time when the sun begins to dip behind the trees, casting the most amazing glow and cool breeze across the warm water. Rent a board or bring your own and come make some new friends!

 


3. CERTIFIED STAFF

Our entire staff is required to complete a certification course by the World Paddle Association. This ensures you’ll get the kind of knowledgeable service you deserve from every member of our team. They’ll also go above and beyond to make sure you have a GREAT time — but, really, how could you not?!

 


2. SUP YOGA & FITNESS

Whether you’re an avid Yogi or think “down dog” is just a command for your furry friend, SUP Yoga at NPC should be on your to-do list this summer! Move your flow to the scenic outdoors and give Sun Salutations a whole new meaning.  Yoga & Fitness classes begin in June. Multi-class passes and Bring Your Own Board options make returning a no-brainer!

 


1. THE VIEW

We are the only SUP company in town with a lakeside waterfront boathouse and 360 degrees of nothing but NATURE on the water. Escape the stress of downtown and come exhale with us. Fresh air awaits at NashvillePaddle.com
