Q. What is paddleboarding?
A. Paddleboarding is the newest water sport to hit the scene! It is one of the fastest growing watersports in Florida. Paddleboards allow you to easily catch waves and get a great workout at the same time. They are great for flat summer days or when there are nice rolling swells.
As well as being lots of fun, stand-up paddling is a very good aerobic and strength training exercise - depending on how vigorously you attack it, stand-up paddling can be anything from a comfortable cruise in the park to a heart-pounding, calorie-burning workout that will leave you nicely tired out and ready for a great dinner! Fishing, exploring, sailing . . . the sky's the limit!
Whether you like to cruise the lake, drift down the river, troll the reefs, travel between islands or hit the surf, stand-up paddling is the best way to walk on water! Florida's beautiful outdoors are yours for the paddling - waterways, rivers, lakes and the ocean all become your own personal playground! Stand-up paddling - lots of fun, great exercise.
