For athletes and sports enthusiasts SUP gives an excellent isometric workout that strengthens core muscle groups.

Alternatively, just enjoy a relaxing scenic river paddle. Often in the mornings the river presents a “glass-like” surface condition. The towering trees along the riverbanks cast impressive reflections that will surround you in a seemingly dreamy and surreal experience.

Alternatively, why not get out of the afternoon heat, SUP the river & cool off with refreshing swims along the way.

We also provide coastal SUP surf trip to Charleston departing from Columbia at selected times of the year…you name it, Riverside can do it for you!
