So, with 1-3 inches of snow predicted for tomorrow here along the coast, what are Mainers doing to prepare? You got it, they're out on the water paddling!
Stand Up Paddling aka SUP.
Standing up on the hill overlooking the beach in Winslow Park I saw this enterprising and remarkably well-balanced SUP'er paddling along. (LL Bean has a whole line of SUP boards in the Bike & Boat store.) Although folks think it's a little too cold here for this type of activity, this paddler was appropriately dressed and looked quite at ease. Something to think about trying next summer! (Uh, that would be you, not me!)
Lessons offered at:
Seaspray Kayaking- will deliver paddleboards to the water as well as kayaks. We also have daily guided tours and instruction out of Brunswick, but would be willing to arrange customized trips, sunset paddles and even paddleboard yoga.
