Fit Travel: 8 Coolest Offbeat Places to Paddle Surf in America

From Colorado’s whitewater rapids to the Florida Keys' aqua-blue channels, here are the sweetest spots you didn’t know you could stand up paddleboard.
Looking for a cool way to celebrate the next Mardi Gras? Head down to New Orleans, Louisiana, and paddle this tame section of the Mississippi River to scope out the ambiance. Small channels wind through the city offering great views of the historic French Quarter and city skyline. Rent from Nola Paddle Boards (includes board, paddle, lifejacket and leash) at its Bayou St. John launch location. Score a lesson or paddle on your own. After? Treat yourself to a post workout Hurricane cocktail, and join the party. Reservation required. ($40/person, 1 hour; nolapaddleboards.com)
