The first time I ever saw somebody paddle boarding, I knew it was something I wanted to try. I was so excited when I got the opportunity to paddle board for the first time with Tower SUP. I wasn’t really sure how easy it was going to come to me, and I was definitely nervous, but the board that Tower provided, and the instruction from Ray was wonderful. I felt so comfortable and at ease. The best part about my first paddle boarding experience was how peaceful it was. I could totally see myself spending hours out on the water. I felt like I got a workout and rejuvenation at the same time. I am so pumped to go paddling again, I just have to find an ocean somewhere in Colorado. Thanks Tower for making my first time so awesome.
