SWFL (Southwest Florida) SUP (Stand Up Paddle) Club is a non-profit organization that focuses on Stand Up Paddle by promoting a healthy lifestyle in the Southwest Florida Community. Our SUP Club will strive to form a Stand Up Paddle society that not only promotes healthy living, but also is active in restoring and cleaning our coast areas to preserve Florida’s natural habitat. This Club will also organize local events that will bring all walks of life to this beautiful Gulf Coast in support of our local charities. Stand Up Paddle is one of the fastest growing water sports in the US. This sport has a very fast learning curve and is great for all ages. The health benefits are incredible. Stand Up Paddling strengthens core muscle groups, provides cardio and endurance training, improves balance and coordination, and sensory integration for adults and children with special needs. Using this great sport as our platform to express healthy living, bringing recognition to local charities, and supporting our local Gulf Coast is just the beginning of this positive vibe that SWFL SUP Club will bring to the local community. This club truly feels, “Every stroke counts in life, so paddle hard and live easy!”
