Winter Stand Up Paddle Boarding on St. Pete Beach

Monday, January 20, 2014 | Chase Kosterlitz

Most of the country is freezing cold with short dreary winter days. Not down here in sunny St. Pete Beach, Florida. Winter time is usually in the low 70's and perfect weather to get out on a stand up paddle board. Water Monkey is open throughout the winter and offering our stand up paddle board lessons, stand up paddle rentals and stand up paddle tours! Don't be afraid of temperatures that are not in the 80's. The weather is great and 9 out of 10 paddlers never even touch the water so you will remain high and dry.

Our Ft. Desoto stand up paddle board nature tour is a favorite for this time of year. Calm water, mangroves and plenty of wildlife await you in this amazing Florida State Park. Our professional instructors will guide you through a tour of the mangroves and out to Shell Key where you can walk around on the protected bird sanctuary. Many times there are no other people on the island so you will have the whole place to yourself. Just you and the great outdoors for a fun day on your stand up paddle board. 

If you are an experienced stand up paddle boarder then you can rent up to 10 stand up paddle boards from Water Monkey. We deliver straight to you in locations throughout St. Pete, St. Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, Indian Rocks and even Clearwater Beach. Our stand up paddle boards are high-quality in order to ensure you have a great time on your board.

 If you have never been stand up paddle boarding then our intro to stand up paddle boarding lesson is perfect for you. Beginners will enjoy small group sizes and professional instruction from one of our trained instructors. Stand up paddle boarding is fun and easy for the whole family. Our professional Water Monkey instructors are sure to get you up and stand up paddle boarding in no time! Our lessons take place in Gulfport which is only 10 minutes from St. Pete Beach on Boca Ciega Bay. Our location in Gulfport is well protected in order to ensure you get the best conditions possible to learn stand up paddle boarding. Our intro to stand up paddle boarding lesson is guaranteed to get you up and going on your stand up paddle board in less than 5 minutes!
