Outdoor recreation, such as boating and fishing, generates an economic impact of $23.3 billion annually in the state of Florida.

Stand-up paddle boards are easily one of the unique and fun ways to spend some time on the water. They have been around for quite some time, but the Hobie Mirage Eclipse is no ordinary SUP. Designed with adventurous beginners in mind, the Mirage Eclipse is a “pedal” board that allows you to pedal your way to paradise! The board also features a centrally-placed set of handlebars for balance
and steering all in one convenient package. As this SUP is designed for beginners, it has a wide footprint in the water for balance. For the most fun, hit the water with some friends and wander about the coastlines. Pedal to nearby historic Peanut Island, accessible only by water. Exploring with a SUP is one of the most fun things to do in Palm Beach!
LIVE Watersports, founded in 2013 and based in beautiful Clearwater, Florida by John Cleckner, set out to push the boundaries of what is “normal” in the paddle board world. The company’s goal was “to create and design boards that help everyone, old and young, big and small, non-athlete and weekend warrior to find and enjoy their passion. After all, it boils down to one question: What do you LIVE for?”
Since the day that Paddleboards were invented, people have wanted to take their boards everywhere, including on their boats. Whether using paddleboards for fishing the flats, cruising the sandbar, riding the wake or any number of waterside activities, there has been a glaring need to stow your paddleboard aboard. But where?
Paddleboards and Kayaks are a serious investment. As such, you should look for ways to best protect that investment. The proper roof racks will not only provide a safe and secure means to get your paddle board or kayak to your destination, it will add to the enjoyment to your sport by making transporting your gear easier.
