Besides the fact that the water is very cold this time of year and you probably do not want to fall in on purpose, there are so many reasons why the offseason months on North Texas lakes are a great time to paddle.
1. The Lake is Yours!– Many of us love to get away from the fast paced city world and out to the lake where “lake-time” is our time. The escape for some is to find peace away from the noise of everyday life, somewhere outside, to a place under the sun, to a quiet and relaxing spot away from the crowds. This is offseason paddleboarding on North Texas lakes, where, even on the weekends, lake life is “dead.” Looking to find some peace and quiet on the lake? Statistcally, 90% of lake life activities and lake goers ends after Labor Day. No noise, no boats, no traffic. Just you, your paddle mates and lake time.
2. Sunny and Warmer Days are More Meaningful– Come winter months, December through April, you will still find several days out of the month in the 60s and 70s, sometimes even up to 80. And on these rare and warmer days IT’S ON! You have been waiting all week, you have been keeping a close eye on the weather forecast and here come’s the sun! This is more
3. Stay in Shape and Paddle-Fit– Athlete’s who are really into their sports know how difficult it is to get back into shape after being inactive. The secret for runners, bikers and anyone who wants to stay “fit” over the age of 30 is to remain active year round. The winter months are a great time to let your body recover, the key is to remain somewhat active and eat well.
