Last year the first paddleboard festival in Vermont drew over 300 people to try this exciting, fast-growing sport. This year the 2nd annual event will be even better, bringing together experts, instructors and enthusiasts to celebrate the joy of SUPs! Over 50 different boards will be available along with instruction and fun races.
Your $5 entry fee will be donated to a Vermont non-profit dedicated to preserving water quality and paddling access. Last year, over $1000 was raised for the Friends of the Winooski.
You will also have to show a Vermont State Park pass or pay the $3 day-use fee.
10 am - 4 pm - FREE - Demo over 50 paddleboards from 14 top shapers!
All day long people will swarm the Elmore State Park for Vermont's largest SUP event.
This is a great time for first time SUP paddlers to discover how easy it is to "walk on water."
Experienced SUP paddlers can try the latest hot, new boards to find out if now is the time to upgrade.
Come anytime and try a board.
The 2013 schedule features on-going paddleboard demos, free instruction for beginners, as well as exciting and fun BIC One Design Challenge races.
