Paddleboarding Events

SUPs are welcome at most Paddle KC paddling club events. Occasionally we do visit lakes that do not allow paddleboards, or windy conditions are not suitable for paddleboards, or cold water season requires a wetsuit or drysuit for paddleboarders. See our Paddle KC calendar for upcoming fun in the Kansas City area and beyond, including paddleboarding activities. From leisure paddles and dog paddles, to endurance workouts and river runs, we enjoy a wide variety of paddling fun every week during warm water months.

If you’re new to paddleboarding, see our New Paddlers page for helpful information.
