Standup Paddle Boarding On Key Biscayne
Standup Paddle Boarding on Key Biscayne
for Young Professionals, ages 21 to 45
When: Sunday, June 24th at 9:00 am
Co-sponsored by The Tribe, www.facebook.com/thetribemb
What: Standup Paddleboarding, also known as SUP, is the perfect combination of surfing and traditional canoeing or kayaking. Using a canoe-like paddle and standing atop a larger version of a traditional longboard surfboard, paddlers push themselves through the water with perfectly choreographed side-to-side strokes. Stand up paddling offers a phenomenal core workout much like swimming, running or cycling. No prior surfing experience is needed to enjoy stand up paddling. We will have the use of our rental paddleboards for 3 hours and will be finishing up by 12:30 – 1:00 pm. We are starting early in order to beat the crowds, and because parking will be unavailable as the day progresses. Join us for a picnic lunch after the event. You can bring your own, or buy from the beach’s concessions. We’ll hang out on the beach for a while, so we can relax on beach chairs and explore the sand bar.
