Community Social Paddle

This year we’re teaming up with Suttons Bay Bike and Surf for our free community paddle.  This is a family friendly paddle for all ages and levels.  Bring your own SUP’s and paddles.  PFD’s and leashes are mandatory.  We are currently paddling on Cedar Lake, however, we will be changing locations to Suttons Bay at some point.  Please check our social media pages for updates.  We look forward to seeing you!
