Do you own your own equipment (board, paddle, PFD)?

Yes. Inflatable stand up paddle board

How long have you been SUPing? How would you characterize your SUP level and experience?

Since last summer. I would consider myself a beginner. I didn't get many opportunities to paddle last summer or manage to convince anyone to join me. My sister in Florida has been doing it for several years and goes out several times a week and took me when I visited her last spring. I really like it and so I bought at inflatable board like the one she has made by Tribal Boards.

What would you like to get from membership in this group? (e.g. fun outings, practice and skill improvement, serious race training?)

Fun outings. More time on my board. Exercise.

Can you suggest some great paddling locations north and west of Boston? Any interest in organizing/leading a paddle at a favorite spot?

The Merrimack river in Lowell. The umass Lowell canoe launch is a good place to put in. Plenty of free parking and a nice launch dock. I would organize a Meetup there in the spring. I took my daughter out at Edwards beach in Westford once. But that might not be much fun for advanced paddlers as it's a small lake. Also I was planning to try freeman lake and hart pond in chelmsford. I have heard of a yoga class being held on SUPs at Hart Pond but didn't get to try it.

Anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself or anything you’d like to add?

I'm from Florida originally. Moved to NE in 2004. Recently divorced. Mother of 2: a teenage girl and 10 year old boy. I'm 40 something 😉

Introduction

I'm originally from Florida but have lived in MA for 12 yrs. I got interested in SUP after trying it with my sister who lives in Florida (and goes out at least 3x a week) two years ago. I bought my own board last year and hope to use it more this yr.
