SUP LT floats water wranglers out to the waves, where they can enjoy a relaxing and watery excursion. Standing aboard a fresh new fleet of paddleboards, which resemble large surfboards, lake-bound wayfarers navigate Lake Travis using hand paddles and their own inner GPS systems. Paddlers of all ages and ability levels are welcome to ride SUP LT's buoyant vessels, which glide around Lake Travis' glassy, scenic surface for two hours before returning safely home. Veteran instructors are also on-hand to help beginners learn the basic navigation and balance skills necessary to have a fun and safe ride and to avoid purse-snatching trout.
Johnson's Backyard Garden puts customers in a direct partnership with East Austin farmers by sharing in their harvest of more than 60 types of homegrown, certified-organic veggies, fruits, and herbs. Cultivated from the 200 fertile acres of river-bottom soils along the Colorado River, the farm's fresh produce populates local restaurants, farmers' markets, and the doorsteps of its members who can pre-order crates of seasonal edibles. Members also get access to the Veg Guide and its storage and cooking tips for each included item, like a care manual that children never come with.
Sail & Ski Center's amiable staff of sports enthusiasts and shipwrights keep outdoor voyagers plying the waves and skimming down mountainsides with boat-maintenance services and an array of watersport and snow-sport accouterments. Like snagging an entire tray of cheese samples, the vast emporium of snowboards, skis, and wakeboards allows visitors to try out wares before they buy, sending thrill-seekers sailing over seas and snowdrifts atop such brand names as Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Saloman, and Mission 7. The talented servicefolk at Sail & Ski Center also sell, repair, and refurbish a broad spectrum of watercrafts, including yachts, jet skis, motorboats, and rocket-powered dinghies.
Balance Yoga’s instructors aim to do more than just give their students a rewarding workout routine—they also help build sound, centered minds and a positive supportive community. Students enroll in a wide range of classes, tackling everything from the core-strengthening poses of Vinaysa flow to the muscle-strengthening Yoga Sculpt, and the slow-pace of Balance Hot Yoga within a heated studio with bamboo floorboards.
After a workout, yogis can head to the spacious locker rooms to shower and ready themselves for the workday. Balance Yoga also unites practitioners of all ages with workshops and events such as kids' classes, art shows, and festivals.
