We do our best to stock the shop with the best equipment available, 99% of which comes from industry leaders NRS, and local manufacturer Sol Paddle Boards. We have since found a new model of kids paddle that should work better for us. Thanks for...More

The grandchildren loved the trip on the North Fork and I did, too, as Daniel and Landon were great guides who also know how to cook. This is a first-class outfit and I recommend the company highly.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by so many amazing farms, ranches and orchards, It can make choosing a menu difficult! We love cooking meals with seasonal local produce, baked goods and meats. I am glad you enjoyed them as well!

Everyone at Western Slope SUP gives that extra-caring touch. They genuinely put the customer first and do everything possible to accommodate your needs. Definitely a ten stars out of 5 rating.

Thanks for the great review. We try to make renting as easy as possible. All our boards are inflatable, we will always have them either rolled up in a backpack or fully inflated when you arrive per your request. See you next time!

Thank you! We are so lucky to have the Gunnison Gorge NCA right in our back yard. It would be hard to find a better river to paddle on. I am glad you enjoyed your time with us!

Daniel and Becca are outstanding guides and are also very helpful and accommodating if you wish to rent your own. So nice to have them in the North Fork. It's a hike to rent a paddleboard anywhere else!

We could not have picked a better place to open this business and make our home. The paddle board opportunities on both rivers and lakes are world class, so is the local community!
