Stand Up Paddle Colorado is excited to partner with the Town of Avon to offer one of the most vibrant recreational lake scenes in the state. Right off of I-70, walking distance from Avon hotels and with stunning views of Beaver Creek and the Vail Valley, paddling this little lake may be one of the most fun things you do this summer. Our goals are simple…access and inclusivity. We have a wide variety of SUP boards that are sleek and fast, big and stable or large enough for the whole family. For those that don’t want to stand or be on a board, we have pedal/paddle boats that can fit up to 4 people at a time.

We have buoys set up for those inclined to race and also have the latest trend in SUP: SUP Polo. SUP Polo takes SUP to a new level where you compete on a court in the water in a 3 on 3 match. We allow as many subs as you want with a per person fee after the additional 6 people needed to play a match. We rent the field and equipment by the hour, which is enough time to get at least a couple of games in. We spend a little time going over gear and rules and let you guys have at it!

We take reservations up to the night before and then offer activities on a first come first serve basis. We recommend that large groups make reservations in advance. We also work with camps and schools and have an instructional format that has given us great results with both large and small groups.

All of our boards and equipment are for sale at any given time, so if you're interested in committing to the fastest growing water sport and want to get outfitted, we can help! We also offer instruction and tours on the Colorado River and Lake Dillon, so if you feel inclined to learn more and take your paddling to higher levels of proficiency, we would love to book those activities for you.

Stand Up Paddle Colorado is excited to offer pedal boats/paddle boats on Nottingham Lake. The boats seat a maximum of 4 people, and we rent them in 1/2 Hour or Full Hour blocks. You can gently cruise around the small lake or get a leg work out if you wish. The views of Beaver Creek and the Vail Valley are stunning.

SUPSQUATCH is a giant inflatable board that can fit the whole family. Use it for a leisurely paddle on the lake or as a massive platform to soak in the Colorado rays, this is a great addition to our fleet. It can fit 5-6 paddlers. Lifejackets are required for kids under 18.
