Lake George Kayak Co. is "in, on, over, and around" water. More than just kayaks, the Bolton based company is open 7 days a week throughout the summer, and is always ready to demo a new board.

The latest thing to sweep through the company is Stand Up Paddling. SUP started in California and Hawaii as alternative to surfing. Now it's catching on and spreading inland, which is why sent two writers to check out what SUP was all about. Read about their afternoon on the Lake below:

If SUP isn't for you, there are tons of things to do in Lake George, on and off the water!
