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!
Stand Up Paddle Colorado offers Stand Up Paddle Board, pedal boat, Raptor (a SUPCO board that holds 4 people) and SUPSQUATCH (a SUPCO board that holds 6 people) rentals, all allowing you to enjoy a fun activity, while taking in the stunning views of Beaver Creek.

Our SUPCO headquarters at Rancho del Rio in Bond is just 50 minutes from Vail, 1 hour and 15 minutes from Steamboat Springs and 2 1/2 hours from Denver and offers more advanced SUPing (as well as an introduction class to river SUPing) while giving you the chance to paddle down the Colorado River! The high river flows of June have been steadily dropping from what we would classify as “high water” to extremely fun recreational flows, and we are currently hovering around 2,300cfs on the Colorado River as of July 1st. Once the River drops below 4,000cfs, we allow rentals, so we are ready for you to come try out one of our Hala boards and get cruising! As the very first company to be licensed to SUP the Colorado River, we have the utmost know and expertise of the River and have the best instructors to guide you.
We also offer rafting trips down the beautiful Colorado River that can be combined with SUP trips and are the perfect way for your family to enjoy an adventurous outing in the majestic Colorado outdoors.
