PADDLE BOARD – Whether you just want to go paddle boarding for the day, take a lesson or sign up for paddle yoga – it is all accessible around Jupiter Inlet there are several places on the Intracoastal and on US1 south of DuBois Park that can get you set up to explore the interior Jupiter Inlet lagoons, Loxahatchee River with wildlife and the Jupiter sandbar, the Tequesta Intracoastal sandbar and of course the ocean. Individual and group paddling available.
Paddleboarding also known as stand up paddle surfing (SUP), stand up paddle boarding or ‘Hoe he’e nalu’ in Hawaiian uses paddles to move ahead. It is an ancient form of surfing that has become popular again as a way to travel long distances on a long surf board. It is easy to learn and offers a great workout. Amateurs often start by kneeling on the board which is slightly wider than a standard surfboard.
River paddle boarding is becoming popular as it requires skill and agility to navigate. It is a fun surfing sport that doesn’t rely on high or low tides.
It is very popular in Jupiter and Tequesta around the Jupiter Inlet both on the Intracoastal and Loxahatchee River and even on the ocean for advanced paddlers.
