Another Dam Race (ADR) 2022 - Parker, Az. This has been a tradition for Dig Paddlesports to attend and bring some of our paddling friends and family. Southern Utah really represented well and came to support this fun event. Members of the meetup.com group: Zion Paddlers, Dig Paddlesports crew and just some enthusiasts all joined us at ADR to test their skills but mostly to get out and have some fun. Bill and Michelle had a small group of teenagers stay with them and a couple of other adult "chaperones" (Amber Barnes and Kathy Smith) in an Airbnb on...
Have you ever wondered why those outdoorsy people are so happy? They seem so calm and carefree while the rest of us are busy cramming in the last 15 minutes of lunch and hurrying back to work or running to the next thing on our list. We are a busy society.

Hi, I’m Jen. I’m the newest team member at DIG Paddlesports in charge of marketing and sales. I live just north of Salt Lake City and I moved down here for the season.

I decided to reach out. We’ve been wanting to work together for years, but it was just never the right time. My kids were still little, and I couldn’t come down...
Is Dig supporting Ironman? Ironman World Championships in Hawaii for 2021 were postponed. St. George was awarded the opportunity to host those athletes on our turf in 2022. Dig crew members have been supporting open water triathlons and other aquatic events in six western states for almost 15 years, having coordinated and contributed thousands of man-hours to benefit these dedicated athletes. We simultaneously help our county Search And Rescue Dive Team raise funds for their equipment and training, as they are typically paid to spearhead the water support effort. Some of our crew will, once again, be at the Ironman...
It's what we do. Wind paddling. Very few paddlers enjoy paddling in the wind. An occasional downwind paddle can be a lot of fun, but paddling upwind is a tough workout and can be darned near impossible and dangerous for beginner paddlers. Here are some tips for handling the wind here in Hurricane, Utah. First, know before you go. A lot of lake-lovers out there just check the temperature and precipitation in the forecast. But knowing how strong the wind is forecast to be is just as critical in preparing for a great time at the lake. I...
