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.

Junior Sailing in Florida

SAILING

Junior SailingSailing – that’s what we do!! It’s funny that it has taken me several years to add Sailing to my list of Florida Things To Do. My children have sailed in Florida for 8-10 years respectively. I have followed my husband around the racing sailing circuits in the United States and Europe for 25 years. To me, it has been such a fantastic way of life. 

SAILING LESSONS

Florida Junior SailingAround Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, there is youth and adult sailing lessons offered at Palm Beach Sailing Club (PBSC) and The Sailfish Club. Levels available depend on interest at any given time.

In areas such as Fort Lauderdale and Miami, there are several regular recreational to Olympic level racing programs offered as well as cruising sailing events for various fleets of boats year around. The biggest yacht clubs are Lauderdale Yacht Club (LYC) and Coral Reef Yacht Club (CRYC). Miami has at least four more active yacht clubs.

RACING SAILBOATS

Between Palm Beach and Jupiter there are mostly power boats – occasionally we spot professional sailors on their way to Key West Race Week or the Caribbean racing circuit – mostly at Cracker Buoy Boatyard in West Palm Beach.

In Jensen Beach, near Stuart between St Lucie River and Indian River, is the US Sailing Center Martin County (USSCMC) which hosts several local and national dinghy regattas throughout the year.
