Standup Paddle Boarding Now Available in Trinity Uptown

by Jeni Bell | Jun 28, 2012

Funkytown now has a new way to stay in shape. Aloha Paddleboards is now open in Trinity Uptown and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce this up and coming sport to Fort Worth. Maybe you’ve seen paddleboarders cruising around Town Lake in Austin or you’ve seen them off the coast of California but now it’s time we had them right in our own backyard.

New to Fort Worth, Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is a hybrid sport incorporating several disciplines to create one of the best core work-outs available. SUP utilizes lower, mid and upper body muscle groups providing a work-out that is second to none. The low-impact core training is one of the fundamental reasons why SUP has gained so much momentum and popularity throughout the world.

Don’t be misled thinking that SUP is exclusively designed for surfers, pro-athletes and movie stars photographed in People Magazine. Unlike surfing, SUP is extremely user friendly, particularly when the paddler chooses to ride on lakes and rivers. They’ve paddled with everyone from 3 year-olds hitching rides on the front of the board with their moms, to inexperienced teenagers, to even adventurous grandparents. SUP is for virtually anyone who enjoys being in the water and exercising in a tranquil atmosphere.
