Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) Enjoy Moreau Lake State Park
Stand up paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports. The SUP is reminiscent of a surf board and is propelled by a paddler standing up.
SUP is considered a vessel when it is used outside of the surf zone or swim area.
A life jacket is required for each person on board a paddle craft, which include canoes, kayaks and SUP’s, as well as a sound signaling device. A mouth whistle is acceptable and is easily attached to the life jacket. It is highly recommended that the life jacket is worn. The exception to wearing a life jacket is when paddling in the ocean surf zone as the life jacket may restrict the ability to swim under the waves. In addition to the required life jacket and whistle, a leash is a recommended piece of safety equipment if you are using a SUP.
