Florida Road Trip

photo(12)We snuck away from Nashville for a few days in January for a trifecta of great paddling activities.

The first two days of the week Margaret got PaddleFit Level 1 and Level 2 Certified, along with Liz Vehyl of Nashville Power Yoga. This is a great professional program that helped refresh some technique issues, practice water rescue, review board and paddle construction, and learn new PaddleFit classes that we can teach on the water this summer.

The next day Margaret headed to Crystal River, Florida with 40 other paddlers from around the country, including folks from YOLO Board, Radio Chum and Distressed Mullet. Thanks to the hospitality of Paddleboard Orlando, we paddled with manatees in the crystal clear water. Turns out, manatees love paddleboards, too.

Then Margaret went to Surf Expo, an industry trade show, where she bought new boards, paddles, waist pack PFDs and other gear to use in Music City this summer.

It is going to be a great season.
