    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Texas Kayak Guide facet_type_id: 0441aeb0-5f3d-1032-bd55-0a0e4452bf4f html_text: |- Some of Marshall Hosea's earliest memories involve water lapping gently about the ankles of his oversized boots as he waded into a river or creek for some classic fly-fishing with his father and grandfather. What started as a childhood pastime became a lifelong passion, and Marshall began experimenting with all kinds of boats to enhance his fishing experience. He loved feeling close to nature and the water as he cast lines and baited hooks, and he found the kayak offered him the best experience. As a bonus, the paddle-driven craft left no trace upon the natural beauty he so loved. Now, he teaches others the joy of kayaking and fishing as the owner and head guide of Texas Kayak Guide. He takes passengers down rivers and creeks, or skimming across bayous and bays, showing them raccoons hunting shellfish, osprey darting into the water to snatch fish, and porpoises swimming alongside the quiet craft. While on the water, he also teaches the finer points of fishing, including everything from how to spot a fish to changing one's tactics to match the seasonal behavior of one's prey.

  • Riva Row Boat House
    The reason renting kayaks from Riva Row Boat House and paddling down Lake Woodlands makes for such an appealing family outing or team-building exercise has to do with simplicity. For one thing, the activity itself is simple to master; no experience is required to rent one of the boathouse's 22 tandem kayaks or 20 single kayaks of various lengths, since staff members are happy to demonstrate paddling techniques to rookies. The activity is also easy to get into because everything is provided for you, from paddles and lifejackets to the refills of the lake that must be flown in from water factories in Denmark weekly. Often, people make visiting the boathouse part of a whole day in the area. They can follow their time on the lake with a picnic at Town Green Park or with a trolley ride over to The Woodlands Waterway, where restaurants and shopping await.

  • SUP ATX
    Since its founding in 2008, SUP ATX has helped shift the status of stand-up paddleboarding from "something surfers do en route to huge, far-off waves" to "sport unto itself." Though their online store and showrooms stock plenty of paddles and board accessories, the crown jewel of their stores has always been the boards themselves. Here's how they're made at SUP ATX's factory. A Stand-Up Paddleboard Is Born Phase One: The Foam. Belt saws cut giant hunks of EPS, or high-grade foam, into planks. Phase Two: The Spine. Workers install a balsa wood rocker down the middle of each plank. This adds rigidity to the board, much the same way a solid pepperoni core adds rigidity to pizza. Phase Three: The Shape. Workers hand-shape the board into a symmetrical, gently oval shape suited for paddling through ocean waves, river waters, and everything in between. Phase Four: The Color. After applying SUP ATX logos and a coat of color, the team protects the paint with epoxy resin, fiberglass fabric, and another coat of resin. The resin has to set for a full day. Phase Five: The Final Touches. Workers install add-ons like leash plugs and handles, and sand each board down to its final, dolphin-smooth finish. A final coat of resin gives the board extra shine.
