Stand UP Paddling is the crazy new sport you see people doing out on the lake. It is challenging, fun, aerobic, and gives you a GREAT ‘core workout! It takes a lot of balance… but there are some great board designs that are lightweight, wide, and stable, to help you have fun on the water, without the feeling that ‘you might fall in’ any minute! We like it best, early in the morning, or at dusk, when the water is flat and calm.
Supp…ing around at ‘full height’ gives you a relaxing, fun experience to see the sights in and out of the water from a new perspective, while getting a workout. You aren’t going very far, for nearly as long as you might in a kayak. It’s really fun to ‘Stand Up’ and paddle! We love it!
Taking it to the ocean with you on vacation proposes a whole new challenge riding rolling waves, watching for striped bass, and for the more experienced, actually ‘surfing’ some waves! It’s the best.. for a ‘sunset cruise’ on Cape Cod Bay!
At Mountain Travelers we have chosen Michael Dolsey SUP Boards from Virginia. With a Surf background, (who knows more about board design!) Our Dolsey boards are designed to be lightweight (+/- 30 lbs), super stable, and fast cruising through the water for efficiencey. We have a ‘poly/plastic’ model that is more durable, and our favorites, which are a ‘poly carbonate’, wood veneer, with carbon fiber rails, that is a really nice, fun, paddling board. Our prices range from $849 – $1249.
