On this past trip to beautiful Upstate New York, we were blown away by all the amazing waterways and incredible places to Stand up Paddle Board. The Empire State is home to an array of bodies of water. Upstate New York is well known for it's Finger Lakes Region. Here you will find 11 long narrow glacially carved lakes that makes for a perfect back drop to paddle board. The Adirondacks are another amazing place that has hundreds of hidden gem lakes and rivers through the wilds of the Northern Appalachian Mountain Range.
Paddling through these peaceful lakes during a New York summer is a special treat and we very much enjoyed our time there. Great people, incredible scenery, and awesome stand up paddling through crystal clear water made this trip memorable. Also memorable and notable are the great retail shop owners that were stoked to bring North 2 Boards into their businesses. Big thanks to the following new N2 dealers, Adirondack Mountain Sports, The Sailboat Shop, Canandaigua Sailboarding, Puddledockers.
We can't wait to get back up to New York and paddle some more! Until next time..
Talk about location! When you pull into the parking lot of Jupiter Pointe Paddling / Jupiter Pointe Club & Marina you'll understand why so many people love to paddle here. Located just shy of 3 miles north of the Jupiter Inlet, it's in a ideal location for some amazing flat water paddling. On a mid to high incoming tide the water is crystal clear and tons of wildlife can be observed below your paddle board. Paddle, snorkel, fish and play on the Jupiter sandbar this is the place to do it!
We are excited to become a supplier partner of these great businesses that cater to the surrounding water loving enthusiasts. All of the amenities the marina offers can be found through their website here http://jupiterpointe.com .
