Stand up paddleboarding originated in Hawaii, but it was only a matter of time before the popular sport made its way to the mainland. The SUP hub of San Antonio is SUPSATX, whose outpost at the Blue Star Arts Complex puts it close to the beautiful eddies of the San Antonio River. Instructors here spend their days teaching beginners the art of the paddle during hour-long lessons, but that's not their only mission. They also lead tours of the San Antonio River, guiding board-bound groups past the notable landmarks that line the King William Paddle Trail. They also host large group events, adding the SUP experience to everything from reunions and bachelor parties to corporate team-building retreats.
