Paddleboard Rentals & Lessons
Have you considered paddleboarding? Lindy and I recently had the opportunity to meet up with John Griffin to get our feet wet. John Griffin is local to the area and takes groups on guided paddleboard tours. If you are looking for some great, clean fun you should try this.
It was a beautiful day to get out and try paddleboarding. We met up with John at Peg Legs on Pensacola Beach. John unloaded the boards and gave us a short intro to paddleboarding. He then put his board in and paddled around a bit. Following John getting in, Lindy gave her shot and quickly paddled out with no problem. Then, it was my turn to launch off. We paddled down the canal taking in the surroundings and getting used to balancing and paddling.
The boards are around 12 – 14 foot long and relatively stable when standing on them. They weren’t too difficult and yes you get your exercise while having fun. It felt great on our shoulders and core muscles.
Okay, so I have to admit… I’m (Shawn) the only one who fell in. Not sure what happened, but in I went. Good thing I decided to leave the camera behind.
John gives tours not only on the beach, but also in surrounding lakes and rivers. I think our next go will be down one of the local rivers. Come out and join us!
