      Checking out the Brisbane area we found Bay Island Paddleboards in Raby Bay Foreshore Park.
      They rent out boards for a fair price, $ausd25 per hour. After your paddle session you can join the espresso bar next to the SUP rental. From the park you can paddle to the north west along our through trees that grow in the water.
      A bit of a mangrove feel from what I experienced couple years ago at the Floriday Keys at Marathon Key.
      After that you can cruise through the local harbor and enjoy beautiful houses and boats of the Aussie rich and famous.
      In the park is plenty free parking space, a restroom building with fresh showers and several beaches to launch from.
      When you are lucky you might see some wild life during your paddle session ranging from dolphins, turtles or other animals.

      Browsing the Sydney harbor area for SUP rentals we found WATSSUP. This company provides pre booked tours from resp. Watsons Bay but a also other locations.
      We met Terry McDermott who by coincidence had a cancellation and was willing to show us around. Terry is a retired Bondi Beach Lifeguard (also know from the TV series Bondi rescue) and knows the place very well. From where we started you can park your car for free. Sydney can be expensive parkingwise. At the start location you can use restrooms or grab a after SUP bite. We started from the beach, north of the ferry terminal. Be cautious about the ferries! Besidies that the water is quiet and provides an awesome paddle scenery with Sydney in the background. We just did a small lap of an hour but you can do more if you want.
      Check the website of WHATSSUP for more details. For us a place to come back when possible.

      Just a quick paddle through the harbor checking some fancy boats and seals enjoying the sun. Weather is still nice at the Pacific coast (30C).

      Part 2 of our Lake Powell (Utah) SUP adventure. Another beautiful spot! We started from Lone Rock Beach (camp ground, $25 entree fee or National Parks Pass will allow you to access the beach). During high season the beach/campsite might be very busy/crowded so be cautious where you park. Also pay attention to the sandy parts where you might get stuck with your car!
      From Lone Rock Beach you paddle North West bound to the other side of the lake where you can enter the canyon. During the transit to the canyon you have to pay attention to other boaters who pay more attention to wakeboarding/waterskiing than other boat traffic! After entering the canyon you can explore the shoreline for some nice spots to swim/grab a bite or shoot tons of pictures. We paddled into a canyon that was filled with debris from trees and other wood parts as you can see in some of the pictures. Because we could not see what was underneath (rocks) we didn't went all the way to prevent damage to our paddles and boards. On our way back to the beach we paddled around "Lone Rock" a giant piece of rock sticking out of the water that makes you feel little!
      As with most locations, try to visit during the week instead of the weekend.

      Been on my wishlist for a while (thanx to Lake Powell SUP FB page and their photo's) my wife and I finally made it to visit Lake Powell. According to some, one of the top 10 SUP locations.
      Some info: We started from Antelope Boat Launch (entrance fee required for the Navajo park, $20 per car) From the boat launch you paddle heading southwest for approximately 1,5 mile to the entrance of the canyon. From there you keep paddling southbound following the canyon until the part where the water gets a bit sand colored meaning you are at the end of the water part. If you want, you can walk into the canyon to see the different shapes erosion has created during time. Awesome scenery, cool swim spots and epic photo options!
      An awesome place to SUP and luckily not so many boaters, while we visited during weekdays instead of the weekend.

      Lake Mead SUP. We did a small loop, still recovering from Las Vegas fun ;)
      There are some places to launch your SUP, like the marina's. It was nice and quiet on the water, not many boaters go out in the winter ;) But temperatures were pleasant for November and with no wind its excellent paddling.

      Exploring Southern California for some decent SUP locations we checked Pyramid Lake, west of I5.
      Parking your car is possible at Vaquero Beach At Pyramid Lake.
      Bear in mind that you pay for both your car and each board... (Car $11, each board $7...). So with hard boards you are unfortunate. Inflatables they don't see in the car, as long as you cover your other SUP gear.
      Its a nice lake with plenty facilities, even a restroom floating on the water ;)
      During high season it can be busy with boaters. We visited in January, water was still cold and just a handful of boaters. You can loop an island or stay close to the shore line.

      The plan was to paddle from Willow Beach to the Emerald cave. Unfortunately the wind and the current were a bit to strong.
      Epic emerald green water can be seen when you are in the cave, i.e. we will back another time.

      West side is the more scenic part. Park your car at Boulder Bay Park.
      During summer it can be busy with other boaters.

      Location is beautiful but the main use of the lake is Wakeboard and waterski.
      Besides that, the lake is officially only accessible for locals that either own a house or rent one.
      The wake created by the boats can result in a rough paddle and your are only allowed to stay in the no wake zone.
      We parked our car on N. Shore road, next to the Tavern Bay Beach Club and walked our gear to the beach to enjoy a short paddle to take this lake of our bucket list.
