4. Summer Nutrition 101: Everything Your Body Needs to Stay on Top
Heat Score – 72
1.2 million people are expected to paddle board this year. With the sun shining and the summer months quickly approaching, it’s time to grab our boards and hit the water.

3. Events of the Month: July 2019
Heat Score – 80
Attending a standup paddle boarding event is one of the best ways to enjoy the sport. It’s the perfect place to be introduced to the sport as a spectator, it’s a great place to learn and try new products, and it’s also a great way to connect with those who enjoy the sport just as much as you do.
