Paddling through rivers and creeks in some of the most amazing Texas state parks can be breathtaking, but what if you could escape on the water within the city? Irving's Stand Up Paddle North Texas lets you do just that. The paddling company offers rentals and lessons all with an amazing view of Irving as the backdrop.
The company offers both paddling and kayaking on Lake Carolyn. You can paddle throughout the day and they also offer sunset paddles for an even more scenic experience for just $50. If you've never stand-up paddle boarded before, they offer classes starting at $40. Paddling can take you throughout the city where you will see their mini waterfall, skyscrapers, canal, and you might bump into a gondola or two.
You can also participate in a number of their paddle yoga classes. Classes are 60 minutes long and you can pay in advance for multiple classes. They also offer meetups for all skill levels that will show you all the best sights to see. Meetups include lessons and refreshers for those who want to try paddling but don't necessarily want to do it alone. All rentals and lessons come with life jackets so you won't have to worry about safety.
Sup NTX rentals start at just $25 per hour. Their normal store hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The shop is located at 113 Las Colinas Blvd E Irving, Texas. We recommend you book online before you go and you can do that by visiting their website here.
