SUP Information
On January 27, 2011 the Tempe City Council voted to change City Code so Standup
Paddleboarding (SUP) would be allowed on Tempe Town Lake. After a 30-day "curing process" SUP's were then allowed on TTL starting Saturday, February 26, 2011.

A few things to remember about SUP’s on Tempe Town Lake: 
    1) All SUPs will need a permit like any other vessel on TTL. 
    2) All SUP paddlers will need to be wearing a leash or a PFD. It is not enough to have them with you; one of the two must be worn. 
    3) Lake traffic pattern (counter clock wise flow) must be followed at all times. 
    4) If you are paddling before sunrise or after sunset you will need navigation lights attached to your board. These can not be attached to your body or your PFD. 
    5) Launching can only be done from boat beach or the marina. 
    6) The Rental Vendor (Tempe Boat Rentals) located at Tempe Beach Park will have boards to rent and renters will launch from the south shore by the rental kiosk. No private owners may launch from this location.
