Oceans, inlets, oxbows; they’re everywhere now: a wide, long board and a paddler gently plying the waters. It looks meditative (possibly) and easy (sorta), but piles of fun (yes!) Lessons help and WhatSUP (for “stand up paddling”) is a local outfitter. They’ll strap their boards on the WhatSUP truck and come to you, or check their website for today’s beach location. Group or private lessons, rentals and even Yoga (!) on boards are available, or sign up for a clinic on August 7th at Moodus Reservoir.
