Paddleboarding Shoal Creek

When I first bought my paddleboard, I dreamt of paddling along quiet rivers like the canoe float trips that are so popular in midwest summers. I haven't been canoeing in a long time and wanted to combine what I recall of those trips with the unique way a paddleboard allows you to be both closer... Continue Reading →
