Paddleboarding in Bend

By Jen Lewis

Paddleboarding! I absolutely love it. I don't get the chance to go often, so when someone asks me, I do not hesitate to say yes! This time it was Tumalo Creek Kayak and Canoe. Probably the best place to rent a paddleboard in Bend, Oregon.

I didn't take any pictures myself (I've fallen off too many paddleboards in the past to bring a camera along), but I should hopefully be receiving some from one of the ladies I went with!

And it wasn't JUST paddleboarding on this trip. I kayaked up the Deschutes River, from the Tumalo Creek store to the Parks and Rec offices, and then traded with one of the ladies for a paddleboard trip back down. All in all, it was probably a mile round trip, but everyone was content with going slow, so it took us around 2 hours. (and honestly - how can you not be content when you're paddleboarding?

I wish I had some pictures to share, but alas - I am relying on someone else for those! 

Now that the summer weather is here, everyone needs to get out and try it!
