Though he’s been paddling his way through white water for nearly 20 years, Cabin John resident Jeff McIntyre said he started paddle boarding about a year ago because he “was looking for something with a little bit of a more total body workout.”
And where there’s water there can be paddling.
Ms. Summer’s Facebook page for her business Stand Up Paddle D.C. has a location of “anywhere there is water,” which includes the Potomac River, Columbia Island Marina and any number of waterways and lakes.
The top reason she thinks District residents will want to give stand-up paddling a try is that “it’s definitely not a gym” she said. “I think people are really burnt out running or going to the gym every day. This is a workout for your body and soul.”
