Visitors to and residents of the famous outdoor recreation destination, Lake Placid, New York can now try their hand at stand up paddleboarding (SUP), the latest water sports craze. Thanks to the vision of Lake Placid business owner, Greg Borzilleri, Mirror Lake Boat Rentals has added a selection of paddleboards to their already extensive fleet of rental boats, electric cars and Segways.
Located on the banks of Mirror Lake, just off Main Street in the Village of Lake Placid, the staff at Mirror Lake Boat Rentals will teach you the basics of paddleboarding so you can enjoy the stunning mountain scenery and refreshing fresh water of the Adirondacks while standing upright.
Paddleboarding provides a full body workout and is fast becoming a favorite cross-training activity for skiers, snowboarders and other athletes. The many ski athletes in Lake Placid for training camps have already taken advantage of the new paddleboards to complement their core and balance training in the off season.
Mirror LakeBoat Rentals is open daily from 10:00 a.m.until dusk throughout the summer, until Columbus Day.
Stay tuned to this station for additional SUP reports from your intrepid outdoor recreation aficionado. I will keep readers posted on the details of an upcoming “Yoga on Stand Up Paddleboard” class and report on my own first SUP endeavor.
