Paddle boarding at Wekiva Springs Run



I went paddle boarding for the first time with the boyfriend and some of his friends. His childhood friend Michelle was in town and she wanted to go paddle boarding for her birthday. Paddle boarding is like a cross between canoeing (funny word) and surfing. You sit on the open board and use a double sided paddle to propel yourself through the water.




We ended up going to King's Landing at Wekiva Springs Run in Kelly Park. You get to paddle through miles of beautiful reserves and state parks. It's better to go upstream first so that when you become more tired the current will pull you back to your starting point. Although it's definitely an arm workout it wasn't as hard as you would think, the hardest part was my legs cramping up from how I was sitting it's a good idea to move them around and change positions on the board a few times.
