Yes the summers are hot, and yes traffic is bad but it is still one of the best cities in the world. Thanks to the amazing live music, burgeoning food scene, dizzying night life, and more than 160,000 acres of park land Austin, TX is a playground for the active lifestyle. With this much room to play outdoors no wonder it is one of the fittest cities in America. While traditional outdoor sports such has hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking have long been city favorites, stand up paddle boarding or SUPing is quickly becoming the most popular water activity. Personally i've found no better workout than getting up before the crowds and getting a quick SUP session in at Barton Springs. Whether you’re a long time resident or have just moved here, get your hollow core wood board today and ride the wave of Austin's fastest growing sport.
