Paddleboarding Hotspots in North America
Paddleboarding is a fairly new sport that has made it’s way to oceans, lakes and even rivers around the globe. If this sounds like a new hobby you want to try, it’s important you have the right equipment to get started. One thing is for certain, you must first wear the appropriate attire, such as reliable, comfortable and anti-chafe men’s swimwear. In our previous post we gave you some information on some of the most popular activities to try on your paddleboard. On another note, here are some of the best places to go paddleboarding in North America.
- Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta, just south of the U.S. border, is an ideal location for stand up paddleboarding. With average salt water temperatures ranging upwards of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and wind being uncommon, this place is great to take your paddleboard. Enjoy paddling at Banderas Bay, a protected wildlife sanctuary about six miles long, and view coral reefs, a beautiful coastline and a variety of seabirds perched on rocks. Take note: you do have to pay $90 per person for access, including a board rental.
- San Diego. San Diego, California, is home to Mission Bay Aquatic Center, a place that takes beginner paddleboarders out for some unusual yoga. Newcomers will experience a range of yoga positions all while 100 feet from the shore on the water. If you decide to take this $39 class, you’ll learn how to downward dog and a whole series of other yoga positions all while floating on a paddleboard. So, expect to swim and be aware of your balance, because this water is, on average, 65 degrees Fahrenheit, a little cooler than the 80 degree water in Puerto Vallarta.
If you can’t wait to get out on the water in your new men’s swimwear, we recommend you give the two recommended spots a try. Stay tuned for more great places you’ll want to experience.
