Wahine Wailele Mountain Retreat

September 5th - 9th 2019 and September 19th - 23rd, NC


Wailele means waterfall in Hawaiian...a fitting name for the location of our sixth women's She SUPs the Globe / LYF SUP retreat! Set amid dense NC rainforests at almost 4,000 ft is the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi. Unique to this pristine mountain lake are three waterfalls accessible by paddlbeoard, kayak or boat. Cool, clear, turquoise water that's great for swimming, sandy shoreline and gorgeous scenery make this the perfect place for a late summer retreat.
