SUP on Webb Lake, Wisconsin

SUP on Webb Lake, Wisconsin

August 01, 2016

The facts: 756 acres, Max Depth: 31', Clarity: ~4'

Getting on the water:

Webb Lake is just east of Hinkley, about 2 hours drive from the Twin Cities. It's in the heart of Wisconsin cabin country and was a great spot for our family reunion! My cousins own a cabin on the east side of the lake, we stayed in a cabin on the west side and more cousins filled a cabin on the south portion of Webb. It had fantastic water access and the weather really cooperated with us, sun and blue skies all weekend. Loons and bald eagles were all over the lake, really quite part of the country that allowed us to unwind a bit.

We brought up the Paul Bunyan and the Portager (our soon to be released inflatable board!) from the Paddle North fleet. We each took turns bombing around the lake. 

The paddle: 

Paddling the lake was really smooth, the water was much higher then normal and not very clear. Wind was a factor on Saturday, but really died down in the evening. My mom and I paddled were able to paddle from the south western side of the lake to the north eastern side of the lake in about 20 minutes.  

I was able to get my 2 year old son, Ty, back out on the water. He loved it!

We took a pontoon from the northern portion of the lake to my uncles cabin on the south side. We had to duck under the bridge, since the water was so high, we barely fit under.

How cool it was to hear you have visited our beautiful NW Wisconsin lakes area. I’m 2 miles down the road on Long Lake and was very impressed with you and your products I saw at the MN State Fair in the Dairy Building.

I own two boards (not yours yet) but one of them I purchased (9’6") for use in the twin cities I do not like. I will be in touch on your suggestions on which of your boards I will replace this current board with.

So glad i ran into you in the Dairy Building @ MN State Fair

Glad Webb Lake had more SUP’rs. Back in ’85 I did it there on our windsurfing board by holding a kayak paddle by the blade so I could reach the water. Can you say fiberglass slivers? Time for me to get back into it with MUCH better and more beautiful gear from PN.
