If you are spending some time on Anna Maria Island this holiday season, you may be strapped for ideas on what kind of activities are good for the family while in Florida. One of the most common ways to spend time is going to the beach. Even that can become routine when you spend enough time laying around. If you have not tried paddleboarding, now is the perfect timing to do so. The sun is still shining in the sunshine state and we are still looking at 80 degree weather even though it is the middle of November.
If you are not sold solely on the weather on Anna Maria Island as reason enough to rent some stand up paddleboards for your vacation. How about some advice from a novice? As a resident of Florida for over 11 years now, I have told myself year after year to try out some of the amazing watersports that this state has to offer. From surfing, to skimboarding, and sometimes even a jetski ride around the bay. I have attempted them all. Most often my clumsiness gets the best of me and I find myself falling onto something. However, I can say that stand up paddleboard rentals are ideal for even the clumsiest of people.
My first attempt with my stand up paddleboard rental was an interesting feat. I found the most difficult part was getting onto the board. Once I was on it was relatively a simple process of skimming the water with the paddle and trying to maneuver the board where I wanted to go. A couple of my friends who joined in decided to sit-down on the board. I followed suit and found this to be an ideal position for my first ride.
Crusing around Anna Maria Island on my stand up paddleboard rental allowed me to see the island from the view of a dolphin. I watched all the beach goers playing around with their kids and even passed by some Fun and More Rentals guests who had rented some kayaks. Passing through the mangroves was definitely one of my favorite activities on the paddle boards. I was able to learn much more about the local wildlife and surrounding waters from our tourguide. This native Anna Maria Island guide was leading a group that I was able to join on my day off. His knowledge and experience with the stand up paddleboards helped me find my own groove - so to speak- with these boards. I almost did not realize I was 'working' while taking this local Anna Maria Island Eco Kayak and Stand-up Paddleboard tour.
By the end of our hour and a half to two hour trip I was still wanting more. Luckily for me I live close. However, this experience is one I would not have wanted to miss if I were down here on vacation. I especially found that the group makes the trip worth while. If you have a great group of people looking to explore Anna Maria Island on rental paddleboards; you might want to plan this into your holiday vacation. We are always fully stocked, but the kayak and paddleboard tours book up quickly. I suggest both options for your holiday because who wouldn't want to have a hands on view of the local scenery from a native Anna Maria Island guide? And afterwards I am sure you will be feeling the same as I did. I do not doubt you and your family will be calling Fun and More Rentals immediately after to set up a paddleboard rental to be brought directly to your vacation home. (For FREE!)
