Are they standing on surf boards? No! they are on Paddle Boards. A new sport has hit the Suncoast Florida beaches. A stand-up paddle board is like a surf board but larger with one paddle. It has become a popular watersport activity to experience our Gulf beaches, lakes, canals, bays and mangroves. Paddlers can get a physical work out, develop good balance and gain upper body strength while discovering nature in Sarasota County waterways like never seen before. The first of three paddle board races in the Sarasota Sup Race Series was recently held on June 22, 2013 at the Siesta Key Public Beach. In 12 divisions, 89 contestants, Men, Women and Children of all ages competed in the 3-6 mile race time course and finished. The second race event is scheduled for August 24, 2013 at the Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota. The third final racing event is set for October 12, 2013 at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron.
