Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, you’ll find Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area at Flagler Beach.
It boasts blue waters, waves glittering with light, and coquina sands the hue of rich cinnamon. In its salt marsh, ospreys soar the laminar breeze, and fish silently glide between the reeds.
The beach is the park’s most popular feature, but it’s also a place to get a good paddling. Literally.
You can discover the Park in a Standup Paddleboarding Lesson and Spoil Islands Tour on Saturday, March 1, 2014, 9 - 11 a.m. You’ll start by learning the basics of the sport in the Park lagoon. It’s not difficult; most people are standing and paddling within the first five or ten minutes.
Then you’ll tour the backwaters to explore One Tree Beach and the Four Amigos Spoil Islands.
The program costs $40 per person with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Friends of Gamble Rogers State Park. The Park entry fee is included in program cost. For program reservations call 386-864-9844.
