Pay Attention To The Elements

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 | Chase Kosterlitz

As you get into the sport of stand up paddle boarding you quickly realize a lot of things. Here in Florida you realize how much you have to pay attention to the weather and other elements of nature. The hot Florida sun soon becomes your worst enemy when you are going for a leisurely stand up paddle session. St. Pete Beach is said to be the sunniest city in the United States. After doing stand up paddle board lessons on St. Pete Beach and other Tampa Bay water ways I can easily see this is true.  If you are planning to come and take a stand up paddle lesson with Water Monkey make sure you wear plenty of sun protection and drink a lot of water. We schedule most of our stand up paddle lessons, tours and rentals for the morning so that we can beat the hot Florida sun. View Full Post
