Stand Up Paddle Boarding in the Heat

It seems like we skipped winter and spring and went straight to summer here in Tampa Bay. Temperatures at St. Pete Beach are already in the 80's and it feels like it could be July. This kind of weather is the reason that the Tampa/St. Pete area is one of the top travel destinations in the country. In addition to beautiful beaches and theme parks, the Tampa Bay area has become a hot bed for the stand up paddle boarding. Water Monkey is excited to be the leader in stand up paddle board lessons, rentals and tours for all of Tampa Bay.
