I first tried paddle boarding last year in Florida and I fell in love with it. I went to Blueline Surf & Paddle at Jupiter, Florida. A very nice place with nice people and a beautiful view. It's such a nice sport. It's so much fun to do, you have many types of "paddleboarding" such as racing, exploring, river, etc.
Here, in Quebec, it's an evolving sport. We are starting to have some races and having some stores that sell paddle boards. I honestly feel like it will become more and more popular. I did go for a ride at the beginning of June and OMG I loved it. It's just sad that I don't have a paddle board yet because I'll go every day. I am waiting on buying my board because I don't know yet, which type of paddle board I wanna do. Some days I am all about racing and other days I am all about river or just exploring and fishing with it. So, I will have to make a decision about it, but for now, I rent it and go for fun and enjoying it.
I want to share this sport with you because for me it reunites a lot of my passions all in one. I love nature and water and paddle boarding reunites those two. Also, you can go explore with friends and family so it creates great moments and memories, something I like. You can make new friends and set some goals and just have fun and enjoy life. Further, you can go at your own pace so there's no rush or anything.
I went this weekend to my friend's cottage and I did go paddle boarding with her while she was kayaking and it was so much fun. First, the place was so pretty, calm and relaxing and we could both enjoy a sport we love together.
Have you tried paddleboarding yet? Where is your best spot in Quebec for SUP?
