SUP For Fish Go Paddle Hannah Hill

Can you describe the event?

SUP for FISH is an event (rather than a race) that gets girls out on the water and having fun. We’ll be working on footwork (standing on one foot, yoga, etc.), little races, and tandem paddling. ? We’ll also have some awesome on land activities like T-shirt decorating and ultimate Frisbee.

 

Does your event benefit a charity and if so, can you tell us about them?

Yes! All of the proceeds from this event go the the Hood River FISH Food Bank.

What kind of paddling settings and conditions will participants face?

Possibly some wind because we’re in the Columbia River Gorge, but hopefully not too much.
