PHOTOS: A FIRST SUP DESCENT OF THE SPOKANE RIVER
By SUP Magazine
Every sunny summer day you can find throngs of people sunning, strutting and swimming at the city beach on Idaho’s Lake Coeur d'Alene. From that beach you can head West where the lake narrows and find the headwaters of the Spokane River flowing between miles of waterfront homes followed by remote timber, agriculture and mountains.
Wakeboard and surfboats have taken the place of most ski boats in recent years but on the placid water of early morning, before the wake starts pounding the shore, you can find the kayakers, fishermen and distance swimmers that have long frequented the area.
It was with that early crowd that Allison Roskelley, Grace Robison and I launched our SUPs on a smoky August morning. With gear and supplies strapped to our boards for the four-day adventure ahead, we set out on an 111-mile first SUP descent of the Spokane River.
