Try Stand-Up Paddle Boarding here at St. Andrews State Park, home of the Official Shell Island Shuttle. Panama City Beach Paddle Board Rentals are available at the Jetty Store.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP, is one of the fastest growing new outdoor sports worldwide. At St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, paddle boards are a very popular beach toy because the Park waterfront is an ideal place to get an introduction to this fun, safe, and easy water sport.
Standing upright on a large surfboard and paddling along canoe-style dates back to the ancient Hawaiian roots of surfing. Now, the sport has been revived and everyone from serious big-wave surfers to long-distance racers, fisherman, fitness buffs, and families with kids is having a great time with new, lightweight boards that offer plenty of flotation and quick maneuvering.
You can rent a paddle board at the St. Andrews State Park Jetty Store then hit the beach only steps away. Paddle along on the flat water enjoying the view, try riding some of the small waves near the State Park Jetty, or pile a few kids on board and have a lot of wet fun.
Paddle boarding is simple – all you need is a board and a paddle. Our boards are designed for beginners or casual paddlers, and a first-timer can be up and paddling within a few minutes. You can begin in a kneeling or even sitting position. Then, once you get the feel of the craft and start catching your balance, go from your knees to your feet. Find the center of balance on the board and stabilize there, then work on making smooth, even strokes with the paddle.
It’s really simple, and learning is a lot of fun because when paddle boarding at St. Andrews State Park a mistake just means a quick dip in warm emerald water over a silky sand bottom. And did you know that stand up paddle boarding provides an excellent core workout? You really should try it, and the Park is a great place to learn how to ride a paddle board.
