Stand-up paddling (SUP) is rapidly gaining popularity with people from all walks of life, and SUP Eco Adventures in Central Florida is riding the wave to success as a burgeoning small business serving both outdoor enthusiasts and those that are simply looking for a new experience.
“Awhile back I received a gift certificate for SUP Eco Adventures from an associate I’d helped on a project. Frankly, I was rather nonplussed and I guess he could see it on my face, even though I thought I was hiding it pretty well.” stated one businessman from the East Florida Coast. “He was unfazed. He simply smiled and said ‘You’ll thank me later’. Then, one weekend while my wife was away, I was looking for something to do and ran across the certificate. I decided to give it a try and all I can say is…WOW! What I thought would be a nice way to kill an afternoon ended up being one of the most amazing and memorable experiences I’ve had. I’m no stranger to the local landscape—it’s one of the reasons I relocated here years ago. But I was completely unprepared for the view that I had while “walking on the water”. After just a few minutes to get comfortable with standing on the 12-foot board, I found myself completely engrossed in the natural beauty and tranquility of the lagoon, the schools of fish beneath my feet, the mangroves, the sights and smells…It was overwhelming! I came away with my senses tingling, feeling almost intoxicated by the experience. It was so exciting and invigorating I felt like I had discovered some sort of incredible secret—like I wanted to tell everyone, yet keep it all to myself at the same time. I not only thanked my associate the next time I saw him—we’re coming back again together next month with both of our families!”
SUP Eco Adventures personnel state that the SUP experience is unlike anything else. It delivers a zero-impact vigorous core workout subtly, without the user even feeling like they have been exercising. Additionally, they leave no environmental footprint whatsoever. The areas they visit are as pristine when they leave as when they arrive. And even those that are typically not outdoor enthusiasts are quickly caught up in the natural beauty of the area, and the schools of fish, stingrays, dolphins and manatee that frequent the waters.
SUP Eco Adventures is conveniently located in Florida’s Central East Coast area serving the Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, Vero Beach and Orlando areas. They have a variety of tours and packages available, as well as sales of boards and accessories, including Basilisk Boards, their own line of custom made standup paddle boards. They can be reached by phone at (321) 507-6058, or online by visiting www.supecoadventures.com
