SUP for Fun and Fitness

Jul 27, 2016 04:08PM

Experience stand-up-paddleboard (SUP), the world's fastest-growing outdoor recreation activity, with level two certified instructor Kevin Nagle at Betlzville Lake, outside Lehighton. SUP is a fun way to get in shape with low impact exercise outside on the water and under the sun.

A combination of surfing, canoeing and outrigger paddling, participants use a paddle to glide over the water while standing on a large, surfboard-like vessel. Anyone can stand-up-paddle. The sport is gaining more popularity in harbors, lakes and rivers, making it easy and accessible for everybody without access to the ocean.

Daily options include introduction sessions, Paddlefit and a hatha yoga SUP class. Nagle’s eco-tours include the Dawn Patrol departing during the wee hours of the morning; the Sunset Tour and the Moonlight Paddle providing a peaceful outing with opportunities to see wildlife, explore coves and glide through the water. Birthday parties, team building and other group outs are available by appointment. The classes and tours can be taken at Beltzville Lake or Nagle can travel to a lake or other private location for group sessions.
