Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) – Coming in the summer of 2020

The stand-up paddle revolution came in the late 00’s and quickly changed the way we float.

Though simple in form, SUP-ing is a tremendous core workout disguised as a fun water sport in which you stand up on an oversized surf board and you paddle.

It’s that easy.

Yes, some balance is required. Sunscreen, too. But with just a little guidance, we will have you standing up and paddling on one of the many lakes in Oakland County.

As with any sport, you can start with the most gentle paddling on a glassy lake and progress all the way up to surfing the Great Lakes when the waves are breaking in October and November. (Don’t believe it? Google this: Great Lakes surf scene).
