There are wonderful ways to see Destin…sailboat…pontoon boat…jet skiing…even from 500 feet in the air – parasailing. Another way to see Destin is up close and personal us on a SUP Paddleboard! Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fun way to explore the many Destin area waterways, from a unique vantage point and also get a nice workout!
There are plenty of places here in Destin to rent a paddleboard – these vendors also not only supply quality, high-end equipment, but also offer easy to understand instruction so you can enjoy your time on the water – safely.
- Start off on a calm body of water…away from boats, jet skis, etc. that can cause wakes. A great place is one of our beautiful sandy beaches..which on a calm day can be like your backyard swimming pool.
- Also, try to pick a not-so-windy day… not a common thing at the beach…but a nice soft, ocean breeze is ok. If it happens to be a brisk wind then make sure you paddle with the wind at the end of your adventure when you are less tired.
- Keep your initial trip down to about 45 – 60 minutes and definitely go with a friend, which is always a good thing on your first attempt.
