Have you been to the beach or near the Halifax River lately and seen someone on what appears to be a surfboard holding boat oars? Well I assure you, this is not some new, made-up, water-sport invention. Paddleboarding, a somewhat lesser known water sport, seems to be making a resurgence in the Daytona Beach area. Paddleboarding can be done standing or kneeling and involves propelling yourself across the water using your arms or paddles. You can use a surfboard or even buy custom stand-up-paddleboards (SUP’s for short) that are specially designed for speed and balance. SUPing can be done leisurely for relaxation, for sightseeing, for exercise, and also performed competitively. It may take some time to get use to, but the fun is all in the trial and…

Ryan Lochte, who once swam countless laps at our own Port Orange YMCA, capped off his 2012 London Olympic games last week bringing home five medals. On Friday, Lochte barely lost out to Michael Phelps in the 200-meter individual medley earning the silver. Just a half-hour earlier Lochte swam his strongest event, the 200-meter backstroke, earning the bronze medal. In some people’s eyes these accomplishments may have been a little short of Lochte’s ambitious goals, but with these two medals and his three other from earlier in the week (two gold, one silver) it brings Lochte’s Olympic medal count to eleven, near the top of the Olympic all-time medal count. Lochte has said he plans to compete through 2016, so only time will tell just how much more gold…

A couple of months ago I discussed the various charter fishing opportunities that our Central Florida community has to offer, but these trips can be pricey and their time constraints may not always be accommodating to your busy schedule. If you’re interested in a less expensive and a more on-your-own-time fishing experience, there are several great options for pier-fishing in our area. There are some options that have the opportunity to rent equipment (and will require a daily fishing fee) while other areas are open to the public but will require your own bait and tackle. In many cases a fishing license is required for both fresh and salt-water fishing in Florida, though many of the bigger piers in our area already have the licensing included in the…
