We are hosting a stand up paddle boarding meetup group to meet on Saturday mornings from 8:00 am to 9:00 am for the month of September.
If you don't have your own paddleboard, we can provide stand up paddleboard rentals for $20 for the hour of the meetup from 8:00 am to 9:00 am. The price of the rental includes all of the equipment you would need: the board, paddle, and pfd for the hour we will host the meetup group.
If you need to rent equipment from us, you can do it online at http://www.sjsup.com/book/
Click on the 'Rentals' tab, scroll down, and select the "Saturday Morning Meetup Group Rental".
You are welcome to bring your own equipment as well.
We will launch from 114th Street in Stone Harbor onto the back bays and Intracoastal. It is very easy to get here: once you are on Seven Mile Island and in either Stone Harbor or Avalon, head towards 114th Street. When you get to 114th Street head west for one block. You will see the road end and a staircase that leads into the bay. This is the launch site. There is a semi-paved, free parking lot to the left of the launch site and all of the available street parking is unmetered. There are plenty of places to lock a bike up as well.
Unfortunately, there is no public restroom at our water launch site.
We hope to provide an easy and affordable way for beginners and experienced paddlers alike to get on the water together.
