My name is Lauren Tudor and I live on Saint Simons Island. I have been paddleboarding for a year and am excited to join an active group of SUP enthusiasts who love the water and outdoors as much as I do!
Stand Up Paddle Jacksonville welcomes you to the fastest growing water sport around and North Florida's Largest SUP Club! Stand Up Paddle Jacksonville is a Meetup group for any and all SUP enthusiasts who enjoy the outdoors and socializing with like-minded friends! If you're interested in the sport of Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), this is the group for you! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced paddler, Stand Up Paddle Jacksonville is the place to MeetUp!
Our meet up group is open to all skill levels, but we do ask that all participants be able to swim. In addition to our Meetups, SUP Jax offers beginner's lessons, SUP surf lessons, eco-adventure/historical tours, as well as opportunities for viewing wildlife (manatees, dolphin, birds) and beautiful sunsets. The sport of SUP is diverse, and whether you enjoy SUP racing, fitness training, fishing, yoga, touring, or surfing, this is the place to meet up for all stand up paddle activities.
Paddleboarding is first and foremost our passion; making the sport accessible and affordable for North Florida residents and visitors is our goal. The number of stand up paddlers is growing in Northeast Florida, and our goal is to bring people together to create community and friendships. We are driven by community and as paddlers we value the health of Florida's parks and waterways. SUP is a great way to explore native Florida, and we believe everyone should experience the unique and beautiful features of our state.
Our organizers and instructors know and understand the sport of stand up paddle boarding. Our instructors are among the first in the country to be certified SUP Instructors by the ACA (American Canoe Association).
Our passion is the water! Our primary concern is your safety and our mission is to share the joy and stoke of the water through STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING!
We love to SUP and believe you will too! See you on the water!
