Rec 101: Stand Up Paddleboarding
Stand Up Paddleboarding - or SUP'ing - has become one of the fastest growing sports worldwide today. An ancient form of surfing, the sport is very easy to learn, and within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board. SUP'ing is one of the purest forms of exercise, increasing balance and strengthening your core via a tranquil workout.
The 60-minute class includes safety, paddling techniques, maneuvering and time to paddle. For ages 12 and above, swimming experience required, PFD's required (please bring your own if you have one), all equipment will be supplied. Class size is limited so you must pre-register by calling the park office at 810-229-6566. Brought to you by Paddle the Mitten and SUP Michigan.
A Recreation Passport is required for park entry. The $10 Recreation Passport can be purchased at any Secretary of State office when renewing your license tabs, or at any state park office.
