Camp SUP expands to the East Coast

SUP Magazine and Salt Life have teamed up to bring Camp SUP East Coast to St. Augustine Beach, Florida.

The event will take place at St. John's Pier and Pavilion on June 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Following the blueprint of the well-attended first event in California last summer, Camp SUP will feature wetsuit/SUP gear demos, clinics, an open Fun Paddle Race and beer garden all benefiting Keepers of the Coast.

"SUP magazine's main goal is simple: to inspire paddlers to get on the water," says Editor Will Taylor. "Camp SUP is a fantastic way to do that face-to-face with our readers. Whether you're a first-time paddler, an excited grom looking to learn from the pros or an experienced water-person hoping to try the newest boards, Camp SUP has something for everyone."

The event is a great way for the family to try paddling for the first time, for the intermediate to improve paddling skills and the expert to try a new board before purchasing.

Joining the east coast team is yoga Instructor and St. Augustine local Jessica Amendola, who will head the SUP Yoga Clinics and ACA-certified instructor and Daytona Beach local Matt Hite, who will lead the stroke clinic.
