Kayak and E-bike in Crested Butte and Gunnison, CO

The next stop on our virtual adventure was in Crested Butte, CO with the Burton’s from Wheelies and Waves Adventure Co.

With a love of everything warm and water sports-related and a desire to live in this beautiful mountain town, CB SUP (Courtney and Braden Stand Up Paddle) was born in 2015 to make it easier for people to find their beach in their high mountain paradise.

As they continued to expand, they realized they had so much more to offer than just paddleboards, and are constantly working on spreading their conscious business efforts e-biking and even across the globe to be able to help more people enjoy the outdoors.
