I grew up in South Florida and have been paddle boarding for about ten years. There are some great spots down there. Lots of cool mangrove paddles and the Florida keys are a quick drive away. 5 years ago I accepted a job working all over Florida helping animal hospitals. I started taking paddle boards on these work trips and when I would have some down time I'd explore all the paddle spots. I've found some amazing places to explore and have made some great SUP friends along the way! I'm still exploring and still finding some unique Florida treasures!
