Everything is bigger in Texas including SUP Yoga! 171 total yogis got on board for this epic sunset SUP Yoga event on August 2nd, 2015. A magical moment and a historical event for both yoga and paddleboarding and a World Record. When founder of SUP ATX, Nick Matzorkis, brought stand up to Austin circa 2008, he wanted to introduce the new sport to everyone through free local demos. I don't think he would have ever imagined how quickly the sport has progressed and how popular it has gotten on lakes and rivers now. In Austin alone, on "Ladybird Lake" that runs through the city, there are nearly ten places where you can rent or buy a paddleboard. You can rent a board at the Rowing Dock or hop in a sunrise SUP Yoga class with Courtney Parnell.
Special thanks to SUP ATX and Courtney Parnell, to the Rowing Dock, to the 171 yogis and to 3DRobotics for capturing this historical moment.
