Learning how to paddle board is a unique way to travelThe ubiquitous SUPs are now firmly rooted in Maine's outdoor culture – better learn how to paddle one.Once seen as a passing trend, stand-up paddle boards can be seen everywhere along Maine’s coast and inland waters. It seems that “SUPs” are now firmly rooted in the state’s outdoor culture.“The reason a lot of people like it is because you see wildlife. You get to look into the ocean and see what’s on the ocean floor,” said Zack Anchors, owner of Portland Paddle. “People love the simplicity of it. You can easily load them on your car. And it’s a great workout.”Anchors started a kayak guiding business five years ago at Portland’s East End Beach but quickly added paddle boards because of the demand. Last year, he offered weekly sunset and harbor paddle board tours in addition to lessons and rentals.http://www.pressherald.com/2017/07/02/h ... dle-board/
