Time to Try a Brand-New Sport

Jun 03, 2013 05:31PM

 

Anyone can stand-up paddle (SUP), because no experience is necessary. The only requirement is that you can swim, are comfortable in the water and want to try something fun and new. Beltzville Stand Up Paddle is offering lessons, eco-excursions and traveling group sessions in the fastest-growing sport in the country this summer. SUP is a fun, adventurous way to explore our local waterways and get a low-impact, full-body workout at the same time.

Paddle Fitness: SUP fitness sessions begin with a review of the basics, a quick warm-up, sprint work, board work, cool down and stretch. Cost is $35 for approximately 75 minutes.

Eco-Tours: The Dawn Patrol departs during the wee hours, when there is no wind and the water is as smooth as glass. The Sunset Tour is an exciting wildlife adventure while the sun goes down. The Moonlight Paddle explores the lake with headlamps and glow sticks under the moon and starts. Eco-tours include equipment and instruction. Cost is $50 for two hours and $75 for three hours. No experience is required.

For more information, call Kevin Nagle at 570-269-2440 or email [email protected] Classes and tours can be taken at Beltzville lake or Kevin can travel to a lake of your choice for group sessions.
