Lake Calhoun - 401 Acres, 82' Max Depth, ~8' Clarity

SUP on Calhoun, Minneapolis MN

Lake facts: 401 Acres, Maximum Depth 82’, Water Clarity ~8 ft.

Getting on the water:

Paddle North Co-founder Matt, lives within walking distance of the Lake Calhoun 32nd Street beach. It's our go to paddle spot, as its just a few blocks from his garage. Matt, Sara, Bridget and I all grabbed a board and carried them down to the beach.

The Paddle:

The water was warm and Tin Fish was bustling. We strapped a few go-pro's to our boards and we were off. Paddling under bridges, willow trees, through sail boats and in an awesome community. This is one of my favorite routes in the Twin Cities, partly because you get to see an incredible skyline of Minneapolis during the Paddle!

We captured and pieced together a short video of the paddle.

Stand with us:

We offer free demos on all of our boards, on any lake in the Twin Cities. If you want to try out a paddle board on Lake Calhoun, or a lake near you, give me a call 612-978-5992 or email me at

I would like to encourage Paddle North to seriously consider changing the name from formerly Calhoun to Bde Maka Ska. I would feel so much better about supporting you as a local business.
