This post is inspired by the SUPCONNECT post on why stand up paddling is the perfect sport for seniors. I couldn't agree more. New Bern is one of the top retirement cities in the Nation and because of this, we have a large customer base of active agers looking not to slow down in their "old age" but keep moving. The sport of stand up paddling is the ideal activity because it is a low-impact form of exercise that improves physical systems typically diminished by age: balance and strength. SUP is an easy workout from head-to-toe. It is safer than riding a bike because let's face it, water is much more forgiving on impact than pavement and you don't have to worry about distracted motorists running into you. The equipment is lighter than a kayak and easier to handle both off and on the water.
