We’ve had an usually warm winter in Middle Tennessee. We paddled on Thanksgiving and Christmas hiked on New Year’s! No complaints here. But when the sun comes out in winter, we get questions about availability of rentals. Are we open? Are we teaching?
The answer is: It depends.
No one wants to paddle more than we do! We promise. But we look at more than the outside temps. We look at the water temps, the current, the wind, the water levels, the paddling experience of the renters and other factors. When the water is too low, there are rocks and other hazards. When the water is too high, there can be current issue, debris floating in the water and other hazards. We don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun of SUP, but we put safety first.
