The thing about paddleboarding is this — you will not find a group closer to our bay than the paddleboarders. They see close up right at their feet how the bay looks — its beauty but also its problems — the floating trash, the brown tide. They are our eyes on the bay. Paddleboarders are also among the most physically fit people you will meet. It takes a lot of core strength to move around. It seems almost every muscle from toes to head are engaged. The sport is really taking off! — Another reason to clean our bay.
