We Love Peanut Island!

Rich Cultural History
Peanut Island is recognized as one of the most historic landmarks within the waterways of Palm Beach County. It was formed in 1918, as a result of the excavation at the creation of the Lake Worth inlet. The island was set to be a permanent location for shipping peanut oil, which coined the term “Peanut Island” back in the 1940’s. While the plans for shipping peanut oil were abandoned in 1946, the name carried on.

Crystal Clear Waters
Peanut, as most locals refer to it as, is one of the most unique intracoastal islands of all time. It is located within the Lake Worth Lagoon, just inside the tidal flows of the Lake Worth inlet. At high tide, you’re sure to enjoy some of the clearest, most blue water you will ever see. Paddle Boarding Palm Beach’s convenient waterfront location allows for direct access straight across the inlet to Peanut Island. No hassle in figuring out your transportation, we’ve got you covered. Rent a board or kayak for the day, tie down your cooler and enjoy this tropical island sanctuary.

Camp, Beach & Snorkel
Peanut Island has so much to offer. A unique, 80-acre intracoastal county park is maintained daily to provide accommodations such as picnic areas, bathrooms, life guard stations, marked swimming areas, 2 lagoons, and camp grounds on the North and South sides of the island for all who visit. The island is full of South Florida’s most fascinating wildlife. Visitors often see schools of tropical fish, manatees, eagle rays, tropical birds, and starfish the size of your head! The beautiful beaches surrounding the entire island allow you to relax and escape for the day. Walk out to the sandbar at low tide, snorkel amongst the lagoons, or take a lap around the island on your kayak or paddle board.

Paddle Training
The island serves as a perfect training ground for every level of paddler. A quick lap around the island is a distance of 1.75 miles. Many beginner paddlers make this trip on their first time out! It also doubles as a choice route to gauge distance and speed for advanced paddlers who take over two or three laps at a time. Depending on the time of day, currents and wind add natural obstacles to create a fun, local route to paddle. Give it a try!

Peanut Paddle Posse
There are clearly so many reasons why we love Peanut Island. From its local history, to the nature and tropical energy of this place, we’ve become a little obsessed. It’s the perfect getaway to enjoy a day with friends and family, and get everyone out on the water! Paddle Boarding Palm Beach grants you VIP access to the island, and guarantees quality equipment coupled with waterway expertise.

SUP YOGA & Nutrition Workshop – West Palm Beach

SUP YOGA & NUTRITION WORKSHOP

In an effort to promote good health and wellness in combination with outdoor

exercise and SUP yoga – Paddle Boarding Palm Beach and Bee Organics have teamed

up for the ultimate, monthly fitness workshop. The first of these collaborations took

place yesterday, February 22, 2014 on the waters of West Palm Beach. The entire

purpose of the event is focused on the following:

1. Wellness Education – Bee Organics owner Andrea Pertnoy, has opened

a brand new organic juicing, wellness, and yoga storefront located in

downtown West Palm Beach. Her knowledge on wellness and clean

eating allows participants in this workshop to gain knowledge on

what your body needs, how juicing benefits your body, and why it is

so important to maintain this kind of lifestyle. for longevity of life and

enhancing energy for yourself. It’s important to understand what exactly

juicing is. It’s more than just “good for you”, there are specific ingredients,

fruits, and vegetables that allow for your body to be better and work

together as one, rather than having your insides battling against one

another to digest the food you’re eating.

Andrea gives a tasting and demonstration of one of her juices to start

the class, and explains why that juice is beneficial at that point in time.

Yesterday, we started with a “Heart Beet” as a pre-workout juice that

helps to awaken the body and establish the nutrients needed to complete

a workout.

2. Stand Up Paddle Boarding –Paddle Boarding Palm Beach’s founder,

Kyle Igneri, has built a community presence surrounding the sport of

paddle boarding. As an experienced waterman, born and raised in Jupiter,

Florida, Kyle has spent time in Hawaii surfing and fine tuning his SUP

skills. Now home in Florida, he has expanded his love for the sport and

built his own SUP shop located in the Riviera Beach Marina. Kyle makes

sure to educate all new paddlers on the proper technique needed to excel

in the sport and provides the best equipment and boards to enhance their

paddling experience. Bringing all of this to the workshops allows for it to

be for everyone. Even if you have never stepped foot on a board, Kyle will

make sure you’ve the proper technique to have a great time out on the

water!

3. SUP Yoga Fitness – SUP fitness has illuminated the sport of paddle

boarding across the world and welcomed an entirely new audience to

the sport. SUP Yoga is on the rise and completely taking over the fitness

world. Paddle Boarding Palm Beach cordially introduces Chris Eliades as

the SUP Yoga Instructor for this Yoga & Nutritional workshop. With over

3 years of yoga and SUP yoga experience, Chris transports you out of the

everyday and into the present with his direction in the yoga practice. The

combination of the waves, board, and sunshine creates an environment

like no other. This version of yoga allows you to expand your practice

even further than the mat.

These workshops clearly have so much to offer, and we’re so excited to host them!

They are going to be held on the last Saturday of the month, starting at 8:30am

at Bee Organics (123 Datura St, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401). For more

information, join our event page on Facebook to stay tuned on workshop dates,

prices, and additional details. We hope to see you out on the water!

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!!

Donations and sponsorships are still being accepted. Visit http://crossingforacure.eventbrite.com/

Top paddle boarding palm beach destination

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.

Peanut Island Full Moon Paddle Board Tour

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
