By The Bay Waterports, LLC is a Cutler Bay-based mobile Stand Up Paddle board (abbreviated as SUP) company founded by fitness enthusiasts and ocean lovers, Paul Kinard and Viviana Chung. The company launched just in time for Summer 2014 and offers SUP rentals, lessons, SUP Yoga, and more!
By The Bay Watersports meets groups in various locations throughout Miami such as Cutler Bay, Palmetto Bay, Deering Estate area, and Key Biscayne. SUP yoga and beach yoga classes are held weekly at their private freshwater beach location in Cutler Bay. Their main location in Cutler Bay is great for group outings, beginners, and relaxing paddle sessions. The location also has a spectacular view of the sunset. Why go all the way to Miami Beach or Key Biscayne to stand up paddle when you can now enjoy SUP in your community?
Paul and Viviana are recent FIU graduates who are passionate about leading an active and healthy lifestyle, “We both are thrilled to be creating a business around something that is happy, healthy, and promotes fitness and an active lifestyle.” Says Chung.
“When Viviana and I first tried Stand up paddling, it quickly become one of our favorite hobbies. We enjoy sharing our passion for SUP with friends and family and decided to take our hobby to the next level and create a business while sharing our passion with the South Florida community,” Kinard said.
Stand up paddling is a unique activity; first of all, it’s a lot of fun for family and group outings. It is also very relaxing to just unwind and enjoy gliding along in calm waters. SUP doubles as a fun form of exercise, “You get out of it whatever you put in to it, basically the harder you paddle the more muscles you engage.” Says Chung. Stand up paddling is a great way to have fun and strengthen your core, increase balance, burn calories, and is basically a zero impact activity! Not to mention the fact that performing squats, push-ups, and various other exercises while atop a floating paddleboard adds a whole new dimension of stability and fun. Like Yoga? Add a whole new dimension to your yoga practice by floating your session with By The Bay Watersports.
When asked about growth and plans, the duo is excited for what the future has in store. “At the moment we are enjoying the fact that we are a family-operated mobile company serving our community. We are currently scouting out possibilities for a full time waterfront location in addition to our Cutler Bay location. We enjoy offering our services to families, local churches, small businesses, and organizations.” Says Kinard. “We are excited to meet more positive people from our community, see you on the water!’’
