So far the summer flat spell has continued longer than any of us can tolerate. So when it's flat, I do the quick drive over the bridge into Island Park, NY and meet up with J.M. of Kostal Paddle for some stand up paddling (SUP). SUP has been gaining popularity, and SUP lessons have finally made their way  right into our backyard. If I can't surf I'll stay in shape and keep my balance skills sharp by doing some paddling in the bay. If you want a lesson or have questions about rentals, check out If you really want to step up your game, J.M. has SUP fitness and yoga classes as well. So check out the site and learn something new!
