Unlike traditional fundraising events, Paddle Boarding Palm Beach is combing the popular craze of paddle boarding with the power of breast cancer awareness.

Paddle Boarding Palm Beach: Paddle board training for Crossing for a Cure
When Travis Suit decided to stand up paddleboard alone, the 90 miles from Bimini to Rivera Beach, he went, by reputation, to the best person he knew of – Kyle Igneri of Paddle Boarding Palm Beach – to teach him, coach him, and prepare him for the journey that would soon become known as “Crossing for a Cure.”
“ I had only been on a PaddleBoard two times before I met Kyle.” – Travis
“Crossing for a Cure” started out as a one-man operation to raise awareness and finding for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which has helped extend the lifespan of children with Cystic Fibrosis from elementary-age in the 1950s, into their 30s and 40s currently. The healing benefits of the ocean waters have made a drastic impact on the lung function of these children plagued with an illness that affects every breath they take, every day.
Travis’s interest in Cystic Fibrosis occurred when his then four-year-old daughter was plagued with undetermined illnesses. When it was discovered that she had Cystic Fibrosis, he went to work thinking up ways to help ensure her future.
When Travis came to Kyle, Travis was an athlete, but some finesse and training was needed to get him to the point where he could physically and safely paddle 90 miles, many of which are in open ocean.
“Hey bro, you think it possible, or am I crazy?” -Travis
“ Yeah, you’re definitely crazy, and YES it is totally possible!” -Kyle
As time went on, two months into Travis’s intense training, Kyle met Piper, the little girl who inspired this journey. With her big blue innocent eyes peering up at him, Kyle couldn’t help but want to take action to help her.
“Are you sure you wanna go alone dude? I want to be a part of this!” – Kyle
And so he signed on to paddle with Travis.
After Kyle came others. Shane Pompa, Joseph Morel and Jesse Kautz all began training as a group, eventually becoming known affectionately as “Piper’s Angels.”
The guys will be leaving on August 7th to arrive at the Bimini Big Game Resort and prepare for their oceanic journey. They will arrive Saturday August 10th in Riveria Beach, at the Tiki Waterfront Restaurant and Bar, conveniently located near to Paddle Boarding Palm Beach for the DOCK PARTY!!

If you have not tried or gone paddle boarding yet, you soon will. The ancient Hawaiian way to ride waves, reserved only for royalty, has been recently reinvented, growing at alarming rates; becoming easily accessible for all! Anywhere and every where there is a body of water there will be someone paddle boarding if not already.
The article in the USAToday travel, reports on the popularity, fun, accessibility and low learning curve of paddle boards. The top ten Paddle board destinations just made my bucket list; although, I can think of a few places in addition I would love to take my Paddle board to go and explore
Being that I am native to Florida, I was quite surprised to find that the Sun Shine State did not make the list. Florida boast #1 most beautiful beaches year after year. With more ocean shoreline then any other state, beautiful rivers, and lakes I see the list paddle board destinations making way in the future.
Here at Paddle Boarding Palm Beach LLC we take pride in our water front location in Palm Beach, we are just a short paddle away from our areas best paddling waters. We have the closest and quickest access for paddle boarding out to peanut island, Singer Island and MacArthur Beach State Park. Not to mention, Palm Beach Island is just across the water, what a great way to see the mansions of the rich and famous. In my opinion any of these places should have made the list.

July 3, 2012 Paddle Boarding Palm Beach, located at the Riviera Beach Marina; ventured out to Peanut Island just as the sun was setting.
Our boards, paddles and bodies were brightly dressed with an assortment of glow-sticks, to stay visible and also to add to the excitement. After reaching Peanut Island we paddled our way over to the eastern side , to watch to moon rise over Singer Island, Palm Beach and the Lake Worth Inlet.
After taking in the sights and beauty of the surrounding areas we ventured back, guided by the light of the full moon and our glow-sticks. Everyone who came along had a great time and is looking forward to this monthly adventure

Marisa Miller’s Supermodel-Worthy Ab Workout
The sexy swimsuit siren is the poster girl for the hottest new belly-shrinking sport on water.
Supermodel Marisa Miller is not your typical gym girl. She prefers skimming the waves on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP). “It tones the big areas like your butt, abs, and back; as well as those tiny, supporting muscles that pull everything together,” says Marisa.
To be as “pulled together” as she is, we asked Marisa Miller and Brody Welte, creator of PaddleFit in Tampa, Florida, to come up with the moves in this total-body flat ab workout. Add them to your routine today—whether you live near the beach or not. After all, lean legs, firm abs, and sculpted shoulders are sexy everywhere.
How it works Do 2 or 3 sets of each move three times a week. Rest for no more than 30 seconds between sets.
A set of 3- to 5-pound weights, a Bosu balance trainer, and a mat (optional).
