Best places for SUP in Colorado??

Does anyone know some good places to go in Colorado? I've seen some folks in Salida on the Arkansas, are there other fun places where both a beginner and more experienced person can go? Thanks for the tips!

The Upper Colorado......anywhere between Pumphouse and Dotsero. Rancho Del Rio to State Bridge is the most popular beginner section.

Thanks caverdan! Is is better for beginners to go later in the season, like July or August? Or is there not enough water then? Appreciate the help

It depends on the year and how they are controlling the run off. This year, they were filling reservoirs and the water level remained low until the Eagle quit running. I would say you want the water level to be somewhere around 1000 cfs. You just have to watch the flows and the Buzz for the latest updates on conditions.

Shoshone and Grizzly runs on the Colorado are very popular around here. Shoshone is a class 3 (my fave here), Grizzly class 2. Plus there are hot springs on the river at certain lower levels around Glenwood. I also SUP on the Roaring Fork through town, class 2/3. People also SUP on the Glenwood wave. Pretty good SUP scene around here.
