Natural Awakenings Lehigh Valley

SUP for fun and Fitness

May 28, 2018 08:46PM

Experience Paddling, 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.

PaddleYOGA is offered at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 and 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 24. An introduction to stand-up-paddleboard class is held each Tuesday at 6 p.m. and each Thursday at 6 p.m. a Paddlefit class focuses on physical fitness on the board. Nagle also offers group eco-tours including a 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 outings are available by appointment.

Pre-registration is required. For more information, call 570-269-2440 or visit BeltzvilleStandUpPaddle.com.
