Florida Keys resident Edwin Hammond Meredith enjoys stand up paddleboarding (SUP). Hammond Meredith plans to compete in SUP races and long-distance water crossings and recently completed a 33.8-mile SUP water crossing from Key Largo to Flamingo, Florida.
Stand up paddleboarding, or SUP, is a fast-growing sport that requires minimal equipment and can be done on any body of water, from oceans to lakes and rivers. It is a great workout and requires only a stand up paddleboard, a paddle, a personal flotation device, and proper clothing.
Students at Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, California, recently got the opportunity to sign up for the first standup paddleboarding physical education class. Students will be introduced to training regimes, board styles, and different disciplines of the sport. Dana Hills High School is 10 miles from Dana Point Harbor, a thriving area for SUP training and home to the biggest standup race, the Battle of Paddle.
