It's now possible to hang ten at Lake Tobesoffkee.
A sport that began in Hawaii, as a way to get around the islands, has now developed into a racing team, and a way for average folks to get in a good workout.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday you'll see folks at lake Tobesoffkee doing something a bit unusual.
It's stand-up paddleboarding, and team Rodeo Beach captain Christyanne Gaspar says it's taking off with a diverse group of athletes.
"Now people are using it as a core workout, Gaspar explained. A lot of people think you're using your arms, but just like in kayaking or rowing, you are using the muscles in your stomach and back."
"The bigger the board, the more stability. A lot of people are finding they have more agility than they thought." Gaspar stated.
The ones who have found a passion for paddleboarding compete across the state. They have three, eight, and twenty mile races.
Gaspar said, "We do have folks on our team who will go to races. We just finished one in North Carolina. We do have the SUP series splash in Georgia, so we do have Team Rodeo beach who will show up and represent Macon for us."
Dana Bittenbender took first place in a race recently, and she also helps train other folks who are just beginning.
Team Rodeo spends three days a week doing sprints up and down the lake and working on turns, which can get a little tricky.
Gaspar explained, "There is a cross between a stand-up board and a kayak. We call those yolo yacks, those don't have a fin so you won't hit a rock and throw yourself in the water."
Gaspar says a board and a paddle will run you about seven hundred and fifty bucks, but if you would like to try out paddleboarding you can rent from Rodeo beach.
Twenty bucks will get you the gear and everything you need, all of the equipment is stored at lake Tobesofkee.
In addition to the workout days they also have a yoga yolo class. For more information or to reserve a board you can call 744-2453.
