Adventures in Paddleboarding - Canyon Lake, AZ
We have been paddleboarding at Granite Reef and Butcher Jones a few times now, so we thought we would try some place new. Canyon Lake is a little further out from us but well worth the extra 10-15 minute drive. We launched at Boulder Recreation Site at Canyon Lake and paddled out from there through the marina and under a couple of bridges. Canyon Lake felt more open and has a larger no-wake zone, however it was very windy and choppy so the no-wake zone didn’t really matter. The wind was brutal, we almost fell in the water a couple of times, but it was FUN!
This weekend we learned a few things…we found out that paddling on a windy day is tough and that ice and the TENS unit is our friend. As sore as we are though, we are looking forward to paddling in a couple of days.
