5. OGDEN KAYAK PARK (CLASS II-III)

This one’s a locals secret: at the Ogden Kayak Park, you can surf on your SUP. When water flow is high, these holes are intimidating—whitewater experience is required. If you are looking to practice your skills, always remember to go with someone who is an experienced paddler. Wear a lifejacket and a proper river SUP leash.
