One recent evening, we were grilling out while drifting along the Cumberland River in Cockrill Bend.
All of a sudden, appearing out of nowhere was a group coming around the bend that appeared to be walking on water. No, it was not Jesus and his disciples. It was Neil Newton and friends enjoying the newest outdoor water sport of “stand-up paddle boarding.”
Over the past weeks, it is apparent that this sport is catching on in Middle Tennessee! Ever seen yoga on a paddle board? Ever tried it? NOW you can!
Here are avid paddle boarding enthusiasts getting ready to launch a YOLO brand (You Only Live once) paddle board into the Cumberland River at Rock Harbor.
Neil is now offering Stand-up Paddle Board rentals and lessons from Rock Harbor Marina in Nashville. For more information, call 615.496.8082 or visit the website http://www.paddleuptn.com/
