Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)

Going into it’s 3rd year, this newer program is something that people of all ages and skill levels can participate in! Stand Up Paddle Boarding is a fairly new and yet popular addition to outdoor sports. To help our community realize the potential of it’s benefits, we’d like to offer opportunities for the public to try the sport and be inspired. We feel this is an important part of learning SUP, which can be expensive. A “try before you buy” kind of program allows the participant the unique experience of learning the sport and trying the gear so that they have the proper knowledge to buy the product and gear later. With help from our generous sponsors Heuberger Motors, Subaru Adventure Team and Shaboomee SUP, we are able to provide a fleet of SUP boards, paddles and personal flotation devices (PFD’s) to the public!
