“Stand Up Paddling is great because its fun, its easy and any body of water works as a place to do it. Another appealing aspect about SUP is the great workout that becomes increasingly evident the longer a person keeps doing it. Just being out on the water also has a subtle but powerful effect of raising one’s spirits, disposition and general well being. Karen Wrenn and Chuck Patterson, two of this new sport’s well known racers and spokespersons introduce people to Stand Up Paddling, offering the best instruction to beginners or anyone interested in improving through their SUP clinics.
