      All the SUP events around Atlanta are kid friendly, including with Surfrider Foundation Atlanta Chapter, Atlanta Surf Posse, and Paddle Anywhere. Paddle Anywhere is sponsoring a paddleboard race on Lake Lanier at the Olympic Rowing Center on June 25. There will be a kids division. Lot’s of first time paddlers. Hope to see you there.

  4. Steve Combs says:


    In the Smyrna area, my favorite places to paddle in order of preference are: Lake Lanier, Stone Mountain, Hooch at Azalea Park, Metro Hooch, and Lake Alatoona. Metro Hooch is the closest, but I like the longer padddle sessions.

    I just did a paddle at Morgan Falls Park recently with Surfrider Foundation. Check out

  5. My wife and I live on Lake Lanier and are interested in SUP. We’re in Pensacola Beach at the moment and hope to try it out here, but we want to know about opportunities back home too. Are there any events coming up that we should know about?
