CB SUP, our premiere Colorado Evolve dealer, is located in the picturesque mountain town of Crested Butte. We asked the owners, Courtney and Braden a few questions on what makes them unqiue. Check out their answers below! And if you find yourself in the highlands of Colorado, missing the beach, look them up and feel comfortable on the water even when in the mountains!!
What is the address of your spot?
607 6th St. Crested Butte, CO
When did you first open?
What got you into the SUP business?
I dragged Courtney out to the cold mountains and she just wants to lay in the sun in a bikini and enjoy the water! So we had to bring the beach flavor to our new spot.
What is your favorite place to paddle near you?
Our favorite paddle spot is the Slate River of the Blue Mesa. The Slate River is a mellow, extremely scenic river paddle while the Blue Mesa is the largest body of water in Colorado. There are countless hidden nooks and areas to paddle around the Blue Mesa, every time I go there I discover something new.
What is your most memorable moment in SUP?
Filming a pond skim segment at Velocity Basin in Silverton, Colorado. It was 33 degree water, glaciers floating on it, and professional skier were skimming over the pond while we paddled around for the film Fade to Winter, by MatchStick Productions (MSP).
Do you have any favorite local SUP events?
The Blue Mesa Beach Bash! CB SUP helped create this event last year- it's the first of its kind in our area. It's just a fun day on the water with live music, SUP golf, yoga, paddle wars, races- anything you can think of to do on a paddle board.
What is your favorite place to grab a meal after a SUP session?
Teocalli Tamale. It's a local ''fast food'' Mexican food joint. Great burritos!!
What is your favorite Evolve Board?
We love the Evolve Inflatable Boards. They are super light and easy to hike with- they are our go to adventure boards.
