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.
Sure, Lake Tahoe in California is freezing, but go mid summer and it’ll be so hot you’ll want to fall off your board. From Kings Beach, paddle along the north shore rimmed with dark green forest and rocky coves. You’ll float over a boulder field buried deep under the crystal clear water. Too cold? Warm up at Brockway Hot Springs, a natural cascade that empties into the lake. Tahoe Paddle & Oar rents by the day and has a slew of guided tours available. ($100/day; tahoepaddle.com)
