    PADDLE DETAILS

    The distance from EpicSUP dock to the fireworks site (Congress bridge) is just under 2 miles. This is a 4 mile round trip. There is plenty of time to enjoy your paddle. You are responsible for paddling yourself there and back. Paddling experience is not required but is highly preferred.
     
    Four EpicSUP staff will be on the water for safety to escort you to the firework site and to guide you back to the dock.
     
    It will be dark for the majority of the paddle, we ask that everyone wear their provided life jacket for the duration of your time on the water, bring an additional personal light, and wear bright colored clothing. We will provide lights.
     
    For paddle boards, it is mandatory to wear your ankle leash during the duration of your time on the water.
