I think the owner of WRSI did it, but don't hold me to that. Capordon on here I think.

My wife just SUPed (swam) most of it. She skipped House, Horn, Granite, Crystal, and a few others, but otherwise... As long as you have a permit it should be fine. I'd suggest a wetsuit and a helmet.

As others have stated, it is definitely allowed. Seth Warren did it a couple years back on a trip my dad was on. He had a write up in SUP Magazine. I have a hard copy somewhere, I could not find an online version, but I bet it exists. Wet suit, helmut, extra paddle would be smart, but I don't think they are required.

I bet they require a spare just like they do for kayaks, one spare for every 4 (or less) kayaks/canoe/SUP.

Can anyone confirm or deny this? Bringing rolled inflatable sup with break down paddle. Mainly for flat water fun, not as a main 'vessel'. Not going to advertise to rangers i have one, but not gonna (don't wanna) hide it either. Bring a shitty custy paddle to put-in just in case?

When we went a month ago, they didn't ask about spare paddles for the SUP, 2 duckies, and 1 kayak. I would suggest bringing one all the same, as it would suck to loose a paddle and then not be able to play later. I'd also suggest putting some pipe insulation foam on your paddle just so its more buoyant. Lastly, I think a leash for the SUP is a good thing on this river. Ordinarily we don't use a leash, but it was nice to have in that big of water. Lastly, make sure you run Hermit on the SUP. Its great.
